RECALLING FIRM/MANUFACTURER 
Cardinal Health, Inc., Madison , WI , by letter dated September 16, 2008, September 22, and September 26, 2008, Firm initiated recall is ongoing.
REASON 
GSI Audera systems require a system software update due to issues with the Split-Screen and the Vestibular Evoked Myogenic Potential (VEMP) functions. A. Split Screen Field Correction: GSI Audera units with version 2.6 software may mislabel Auditory Evoked Potential (AEP) waveform responses with respect to the identification of the stimulus ear. When using 2.6 software in split-screen mode, and switching data acquisition from right ear to the left ear, if the audiologist clicks back on the right ear to annotate or mark it, the data acquisition from the left ear is then assigned to the record of the right ear. The waveform is labeled as a right ear response even though the left ear was stimulated and vice versa. Mislabeling of the results could lead to a decision to fit a hearing aid on the incorrect ear and result in excessive hearing aid amplification and possible damage to the misdiagnosed ear. B. VEMP Marketing Correction: The US Food and Drug Administration is requiring the removal of the Vestibular Evoked Myogenic Potential (VEMP) function from the GSI Audera products in the field until this function has been granted FDA's clearance.

RECALLING FIRM/MANUFACTURER

REASON 
Two issues have been identified with the AS3000 unit. 1. The threadlocker of the caster (wheels) may not have been utilized, which may allow the caster to loosen and possibly separate from the unit. 2. The use of select brands of pre-pack absorber in the absorber canister of the AS3000 has been associated, in some cases, with gas leakage around the pre-pack, rather than through the absorber material.
