  • Reason
    The patient / priming detector is integrated in the venous clamp. if the start up procedures for on-line priming described in the operator's manual are not followed when preparing the ak 200 ultras and ak 200 ultra machines for a patient treatment, a significant safety feature may be compromised, in which case the device may not be able to detect blood. this issue may arise if the operator: -fails to properly attach the venous line in the venous clamp during the priming procedure; and -fails to verify the illumination of the machine blood path indication after patient connection; and -fails to confirm start of treatment; and - ignores the audible alarm and attention related to the achieved extra priming volume.
