Product Name/Description DuraDiagnost X-ray systems

ARTG Number: 207424
Recall Action Level Hospital
Recall Action Classification Class II
Recall Action Commencement Date 12/07/2016
Responsible Entity Philips Electronics Australia Ltd
Reason/Issue DuraDiagnost systems provide an audible exposure termination signal (Beep) through the speaker integrated into the monitor. However, buttons or keys on the monitor allow the user to turn the volume setting down to “0”, in which case the beep will not be heard at the conclusion of an exposure. Note that the current volume setting is displayed when the buttons or keys are depressed. If the monitor volume is set to “0”, the absence of an audible exposure termination signal may lead the operator to assume that an exposure was not performed correctly and therefore unnecessarily repeat the patient exposure.
Recall Action Recall for Product Correction
Recall Action Instructions Philips is advising users to check the volume of the monitor to ensure it is not set to '0'. Philips will be implementing a software upgrade as a permanent correction.
This action has been closed-out on 19/03/2018.
