About the Recall:
DeVilbiss Healthcare is voluntarily implementing this correction to replace the instruction manual with an updated version that is in alignment with labeling requirements specified in the IEC-60101-1 standard. DeVilbiss Healthcare decided to initiate this correction after reviewing the current standard and identifying the clarifications needed.
Risk to Health
This voluntary instruction manual correction should not affect patients, health care providers, or other persons who are exposed to the device. The risk to an end user arises from the potential to touch an applied part that exceeds 41°C, which may result in a burn. However, a combination of extreme conditions must take place concurrently to create this potential hazard, and there is a low likelihood of this type of event occurring.
There have been no specific complaints or adverse events related to this voluntary correction.
Actions to be taken by the Customer
