Action Siemens Healthineers issued Urgent Medical Device Correction notice dated August 3, 2018, informing potentially affected users via Safety Advisory Notice XP029/18/S to advise of the problem, risk to health, action to be taken (it is strongly recommended not to perform up/down movements of the lifting column directly above the patient. Instead, the vertical movement should be completed beside the patient and then the system should be moved horizontally to the patient). The service organization will contact to arrange a date to perform this corrective action with Update Instruction XP031/18/S. Contact service organization for an earlier appointment at 1-800-888-7436. Siemens Healthineers is preparing a corrective action that will resolve this potential issue.
