Event Description
The customer reports scalp lesions of newborns, from the application of fetal monitoring (scalp) during labor. The patient required administration of an antibiotic therapy for 10 days.
 
Manufacturer Narrative
It was reported that a newborn patient was born via ¿normal birth¿ and the doctor used the device before the delivery time for monitoring of the fetal heart. The patient had inflammation at the site of the insertion of the fse. A return material authorization was issued for return of the device involved in the incident for evaluation. However, philips was advised that the hospital team did not retain the product. Therefore, no product will be returned for evaluation. Philips was also informed that there was no report of the tip breaking and the hospital does not have information about the device, batch or any other details, including why the antibiotic therapy was needed. Per a philips senior clinical informatics specialist: "my clinical conclusion based on the limited incident information is the intended use of the fse device requires insertion into the scalp tissue of the fetus. This action inherently results in skin integrity interruption to allow the attachment of the spiral electrode. " the customer was provided with a letter explaining the investigation that had occurred. Philips is considering this a malfunction of cause unknown for reporting purposes only.
