Manufacturer Narrative
The suspect pump unit was returned to the local service center for evaluation. The customer's complaint was confirmed as the power connection and power cord were burnt. The device is being sent directly to the manufacturer for further evaluation. At this time the root cause was unable to be identified. A supplemental report will be provided when the additional evaluation is completed. The design history record is in process and the results will be communicated in a follow-up report. Fires, especially in oxygen rich environments have the potential to injure a patient or the user. In this instance, there was an explosion and then fire was observed. There was no harm to the patient or user. In addition, these devices are used by highly trained clinicians experienced in assessing and mitigating any hazards that arise. It is unknown if user or procedural factors could have contributed to this event. Complaint histories for all reported events are reviewed against trending control limits on a monthly basis, and any excursions above the control limits are assessed and documented as part of this monthly review.
 
Event Description
As reported, during use with a patient using this ev1000 pump unit, after connecting the ev1000 monitor with a volumeview set to the patient and starting the measurements, the hospital¿s electrical alarm network was heard just after getting numbers on the monitor. The electrical department was called to investigate. At that time, an explosion on the pump unit was heard and there was fire from the pump unit. The ev1000 monitor was immediately disconnected from the main power supply and the system alarm stopped. Another ev1000 system was used to reconnect the volumeview already placed in the patient and everything worked. There was no allegation of patient injury. The device was available for evaluation.
 
Manufacturer Narrative
Our product evaluation laboratory received the ev1000 pump unit. The pump unit's power connection and power cord smelled burned and appeared burned. The device was sent to the manufacturer for further investigation. An engineering evaluation has been initiated to assess for any manufacturing-related processes which could be correlated to the complaint. The device history record review is in process but hasn't been completed. Once the results are available, a supplemental report will be submitted.
