Product Numbers: 865350, 865351, 865352 and 867146

ARTG Number: 99204
Recall Action Level Hospital
Recall Action Classification Class I
Recall Action Commencement Date 21/05/2018
Responsible Entity Philips Electronics Australia Ltd
Reason/Issue Philips has identified that five warning statements are missing from the Instructions For Use (IFU) for IntelliVue MX40 IFU software revisions B.05, B.06 and B.06.5X. If users are unaware of the hazards or limitations described in the missing warning statements, they may not properly assess or provide appropriate treatment to a patient being monitored using an IntelliVue MX40.

These IFUs are missing warning statements related to monitoring of patients with pacemakers and the interpretation of QT/QTc measurements that were present in earlier revisions of the IFU. A “Warning” alerts users to a potential serious outcome, adverse event or safety hazard. Failure to observe a warning may result in death or serious injury to a user or patient.

To date, no patient harm has been reported as a result of this issue.
