Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Electromagnetic interference (EMI), though rare, can have a detrimental effect on the performance of electronic medical devices, potentially posing a patient safety risk. We encourage healthcare facilities to report EMI events (both known and suspected) to external entities such as device manufacturers, regulatory bodies (e.g., the U.S. Food and Drug Administration [FDA]), and ECRI Institute. Reporting such events will allow these organizations to analyze a greater number of reports in order to recognize trends that can help identify the susceptibility of devices to this problem; this information can then be disseminated to the healthcare community.
