  • Cause
    There is a higher than expected age related failure of an internal component, which has resulted in either over or under delivery of anaesthetic agent to patients.Ge healthcare has found that the internal rotary valve has been failing prematurely. whilst this failure rate is low, it is higher than expected with other types of vaporiser. it is usually perceived that anaesthetic vaporisers are extremely reliable; consequently anaesthetists have continued to use faulty vaporisers in the mistaken belief that it is their agent monitor that has failed.
  • Action
    Identify all Tec 6 Plus Desflurane vaporisers. Ensure users are made aware of the increased failure rate of these devices. Have procedures in place to ensure that: the vaporiser’s performance is closely monitored the vaporiser is replaced immediately if any problem is suspected the vaporiser performance is regularly checked, as recommended in its user reference manual in sections 6-2 and 6-3.
