Date of Enforcement Report 2/2/2011
GE Healthcare Transport Pro Monitor with the CARESCAPE” Patient Data Module. Recall # Z-0363-2011.
Transport Pro Monitor stops communication with the CARESCAPE Patient Data Module (PDM) after 414 days of continuous run time. This time will equate to different amounts of real time depending on how much the units is actually in service per day. Transport Pro contains an internal timer that is used to control the software and remind users to perform preventive maintenance. When this internal timer rolls-over, the Transport Pro will display an EC1 message. If the Transport Pro is continued to be used without clearing the EC1 message, after additional 19 days of service time, loss of communication between the Transport Pro and a connected CARESCAPE Patient Data Module (PDM) will occur. This results in the loss of the displayed parameter information (e.g. waveforms, numerical data, and alarms). This condition affects all released versions of software.
