Executive Summary

Patient monitors made by General Electric Medical Systems (GEMS) Information Technologies and Critikon are the subject of a UK Medical Devices Agency (MDA) hazard notice. The agency warns that the DINAMAP PRO 100-400 and PRO 1000 series blood pressure and vital signs monitors can pose a risk of electric shock when the mains input connector is pulled out, thereby exposing live terminals. The warning, issued on August 22 2002, does not affect models manufactured after November 15 2001. GEMS has implemented a modification programme and all units are due to be upgraded by December 2002.
