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. The customer reported to merge healthcare that on (b)(6) 2017, during a case, while the patient was already sedated and being actively monitored, the client pc's mouse stopped working. After a reboot of both the hemo monitor pc and client pc, the mouse began working again but the hemo monitor would not display correctly.

With merge hemo not capturing physiological data, the device is not working as expected, therefore, could cause harm to the patient. The customer was able to get the hemo pcs and monitors working as expected and the procedure was completed successfully. Reference complaint number: (b)(4).
