Reason/Issue Issues have been identified regarding the Video Display Cables, Video Display Assembly (Internal PC Board) and the Pneumatic Assembly for certain Cardiosave Hybrid and Rescue IABPs.

1 - The Cardiosave IABP may have intermittent connectivity issues with the video display cables causing display blanking followed by a “System Failure” audible alarm and shut down.
