The letters instructed users to immediately discontinue use of in-line temperature probes for Intermittent Cardiac Output (ICO) measurements on the Vigilance II instrument and recommends use of the bath probe only (model 9850A) to measure the temperature of the injectate solution for ICO calculations, until software update have been completed. Customers were instructed to complete and return a software upgrade form to Edwards as record of completion. For questions call Edwards Technical Support department at 800-822-9837.
