Hamilton Medical AG is updating all HAMILTON-G5 ventilators (PN 159001 that contains the software versions ≤ 2.60) with a newly developed software version 2.80, to reduce the probability of the user message “Panel connection lost” and ventilator entering an ambient state.
The user error message is due to a blocked or terminated communication between the ventilation unit processor and the interaction panel processor.
On February 11, 2019 and March 20, 2019, Hamilton Medical AG issued safety communications to the users for the HAMILTON-G5 ventilators (PN 159001), due to the "Panel connection lost" error.
