Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
The heart rate could be calculated from pacer pulses without indication that pacemaker detection is OFF in some combinations of Bx50 monitors, a PDM, and CIC/CSCS. Then the monitor does not show the Pacer Off message and there may not be an alarm for asystole. Undetected asystole could result in irreversible changes in the patient¿s condition and delayed or missed life sustaining patient treatment
