Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
The firm has discovered an issue associated with some Transesophageal (TEE) transducers that were not properly programmed during manufacturing. As a result, the system is unable to correctly measure the temperature on the distal tip of the transducer. This issue may result in affected transducers not initiating auto-cool during use which could result in patient injury
FDA Determined
Cause 2
Process control
Action If you have an EPIQ, Affiniti or iE33 system, verify that all your S7-3t and S8-3t TEE transducers are programmed properly by connecting them to the system, checking the transducer temperature (TEE T) on the display, and following the instructions provided on this letter. If you determine that your transducer is not properly programmed, discontinue using the transducer immediately and contact your local Philips representative to schedule an appointment with a field service engineer. If you have an HD11 or CX50 system discontinue using the S7-3t and S8-3t transducer immediately and contact your local Philips representative for support. Please complete the included reply form on the last page and return to Philips as soon as possible via email to ultrasound.corrections@philips.com, or fax to 1-833-512-7756.
