Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
The recall was initiated because Newport Medical has confirmed that the HT50 Dual Pac Ventilator is not compatiable with the external battery pack (p/n BAT3300A) supplied with the previous single battery ventilator. The Dual Pac system has a slightly higher amperage draw than the single battery and as a result can cause the fuse in the external battery pack to blow making the battery inoperable.
FDA Determined
Cause 2
Action Newport Medical sent an IMPORTANT PRODUCT NOTICE on July 22, 2009, to all affected customers who purchased the Newport HT50 Dual Pac Ventilator with the external battery pack (p/n BAT3300A) supplied with the previous single battery ventilator. Newport Medical also sent an upgrade kit (FSK3301) which includes instructions for changing the fuse on the external battery. The letter provided the customers with an explanation of the problem identified and an action to be taken. Customers were instructed to not use an external battery with the new Dual Pac Ventilator until they have completed the fuse replacement. Customers with any questions about this fuse replacement or require additional upgrade kits, were instructed to contact Newport Medical's Technical Support Department at (800) 451-3111 or (714) 427-5811 x500.
