The affected machines may stop working without setting off the alarm.

The models included in this recall are listed below

  • V60

The company is working to contact all known buyers.

Customers should do one of the following actions to mitigate the possibility of these issues

  • Implement an oxygen analyzer with appropriate alarm settings for each V60/V60 Plus, or V680; and/or
  • Connect the V60/V60 Plus or V680 to a nurse call/remote alarm system, as documented in the instructions for use; upon request, Philips Respironics can provide technical assistance to implement this nurse call/remote alarm capability; and/or
  • Monitor the patient with pulse oximetry or other physiological monitoring appropriate to the institution’s capabilities and patient needs.

If these are not possible options for you then stop using the ventilators.
