Process control
Action The recalling firm issued letters dated 5/27/2022 via traceable means on 5/27/2022 which were addressed to the Director of Respiratory, Chief of Anesthesia, Health Care Administrator/Risk Manager, and Director of Biomedical/Clinical Engineering. The letter is flagged that the consignee needs to ensure all potential users in the facility are made aware of this safety notification and recommended actions. The notification informs the consignees of the affected devices, the safety issue, and actions to be taken. The actions notified the consignee they can continue to use the anesthesia system by following instructions listed in the letter. The instructions were to inspect the anesthesia system for cracks at the rear of the base as depicted in the diagram and photograph, and if no cracks are observed, they can continue to use the anesthesia system. If a crack at the rear is observed, they can continue to use the system under the following conditions: Limit the movement of the system using care on uneven flooring/threshold and ensure the floor is clear of obstacles (cables, power cords, etc.); and do not exceed the recommended weight limit for equipment mounted or supported by the anesthesia system. A Medical Device Notification Acknowledgement Response form was to be completed and returned within 30 days of receipt to acknowledge receipt and understanding of the notification. The letter informs the consignee that the recalling firm will inspect all affected devices at no cost and that a firm representative will contact the consignee to arrange for the correction.
