Manufacturer Narrative
Overall investigation summary: a hospital notified guerbet service that during a case, smoke emitted from the hydra vision's table tower, just prior to the left monitor going blank. Although there was no harm to the patient or caregiver, the case was halted due to the smoke. Since the smoke triggered a smoke alarm, the local fire department responded; however, no flames were detected. The hospital biomed examined the table and found the left monitor's power supply was defective and smelled of smoke. Guerbet's field service engineer visited the account and replaced the power supply of this 14-year old system. After verifying proper operation according to hydra vision dr system service checklist qssrwi4. 1, the field service engineer returned the system to full service. A review of guerbet's complaint tracking system indicated no similar such issues with this machine. Root/probable cause code: equipment/instrument - failure. Root/probable cause summary: it is believed that age may have been a factor, since the defect occurred past the expected life of the device. Power supplies like other electronic equipment has a greater chance of failing with age and continuous use. The power supply was designed to conform to both ul 60601-1 and iec 60601-1 electrical safety standards, and therefore equipped with flame retardant covers. Guerbet will continue to monitor and trend such events during metric and management reviews for additional investigation and or corrective action consideration. Disposition summary: unit returned to full service.
