Only GIP version 1.2 is an issue. 2) If you have the GIP version 1.2: -The ventilator alarms continue to work normally at the bedside and central station. -The ventilator itself is available and working correctly. -The reported x10 volumes would be an obvious error to the clinician. Spacelabs Field Service personnel will be contacting all customers to schedule a convenient time to install, at no cost, a software update that resolves this issue.
