Event Description
Merge hemodynamics monitors, measures, and records physiological data from a human patient undergoing a cardiac catheterization procedure. The system comprises the patient data module and the merge hemodynamics hemo monitor pc. The two units are connected via a serial interface. All vital parameters and evaluations are registered and calculated in the patient data module. This data is then transmitted to the merge hemodynamics hemo monitor pc via the serial interface. All data can be shown and monitored on the merge hemodynamics hemo monitor pc. On (b)(6) 2016, a customer reported to merge healthcare that the site's hemo client pc appeared to have a hard drive problem. The user pushed the power button and then a loud ticking sound was heard. Upon evaluating, the user found that the ups was defective. If parts of the hemo system become energized, there is a potential for direct harm to the patient and/or user including electrical shock or burns. However, the customer confirmed that no patient or staff member was neither injured nor needed treatment as a result of this event. (b)(4).
