Giraffe Omnibeds & Incubators Recalled By GE Over Patient Safety Risk

Posted on April 23, 2013

Giraffe Omnibeds and Giraffe Incubators that utilize a Servo Control Oxygen System have been recalled by GE Healthcare because of a possible threat to patient safety.  The recall was actually issued toward the beginning of the year, but GE is issuing this latest announcement as a means to confirm that affected owners have been properly notified and to relate the fact that inspections should be carried out shortly by a GE engineer.  When the items are powered on, whether after a power failure or otherwise, the radiant heater and oxygen set point manual settings can revert to pre-input levels.  This could imperil the safety of patients requiring specific parameters.
