Responsible Entity Philips Electronics Australia Ltd
Reason/Issue Philips has identified that ST-segments in a 12-lead ECG may become distorted and the ST-value may be inaccurate when an affected monitor automatically activates ECG filtering in the event that a “ECG Check Cable” or “ECG Noisy Elec xx” INOP condition is triggered and displayed. These INOPs are triggered when the monitor detects a low impedance between ECG lead wires and the cable shield in the lead set, which can be caused by mechanical damage or fluid ingress.

Distortions on the ST-segment and associated numerics can contribute to a misdiagnosis or misinterpretation, which can cause a delayed or an incorrect treatment.
