  • Extra notes in the data
  • Reason
    The manufacturer has found that if a low spo2 yellow medium grade alarm is displayed and paused by the user, the iacs did not generate the spo2 (red) high grade life threatening spo2 low alarm on the cockpit and the central station; only the patient monitor (m540) showed the red signal. the correct spo2 value is indicated on all devices. this iacs behaviour happens only in the neonatal mode.
  • Action
    Draeger Medical is recommending users not to pause the medium grade SpO2 low alarm without adequate patient surveillance. A software update is being developed as a permanent fix and should be available in March 2014.
