CareFusion Provides Update on Voluntary Recall of Neurological Monitoring Software and Devices
Date:1/20/2012

SAN DIEGO, Jan. 20, 2012  /PRNewswire/ --CareFusion issued the following update regarding its voluntary recall of the Nicolet® Cortical Stimulator Control Unit, Nicolet® C64 Stimulus Switching Unit (SSU) Amplifier and NicoletOne Software with Cortical Stimulator License. The FDA has classified this action as a Class I recall.

The company initiated the voluntary recall, which affects 125 devices and 58 software licenses, in October 2011. The devices and software subject to the recall were distributed to 38 customers between May 7, 2009 and July 11, 2011. This action has no effect on the manufacture or distribution of current products.

There is no change to the remediation plan previously communicated by the company. CareFusion has already completed the majority of the corrective actions on affected products in the United States.

In October 2011, the company sent an urgent Medical Device Recall Notification to customers stating the identified potential risks associated with the Cortical Stimulator Control Unit, SSU Amplifier and related software applications. Affected units have the potential to develop a short circuit, and affected software licenses may display or capture the incorrect electrode annotation label on the Cortical Stimulator Control Unit screen and in the associated report. A Class I recall is defined as a reasonable probability of serious adverse health consequences or death associated with use of the defective units.

In the notification letter, customers were provided serial and version numbers of affected hardware and software. This information is available at http://www.carefusion.com/customer-support/alerts-notices/medical-device-recall-nicoletone-software.aspx.
