Action The firm, Siemens, sent a "Safety Advisory Notice" dated August 27, 2014, to end users/customers. The notice identified the product, problem, and action to be taken. The customers were instructed to follow the instructions in the notice; promptly notify and instruct all the staff at your organization who have to be aware of this problem; forward this safety information to other organizations affected by this measure; and if the device has been sold and therefore no longer in your possession, forward to new owner. Siemens prepared a field modification of the Ysio systems with a hardware upgrade. This field modification will be available in September 2014. If you have any questions, please contact Regulatory Specialist at 610-219-4334 or Customer support at 610-219-6300.
