I just received a phone call from my Apria representative and was informed that Pulmonetics has issued a nationwide recall on the LTV ventilator (did not specify a specific model). My daughter uses the LTV 950 and both her vents are affected by this recall. A letter is being sent out to all affected, but if you dont want to wait, you can call Pulmonetics or your DME to see if your vent is affected.
The problem is only with the use of external batteries and car adapters. The ventilator is having problems switching over from internal battery or AC power to external power sources (such as external batteries and car adapters). The vent will start flashing Inop and will not ventilate properly.
If I find out any additional information, I will let you know.
Mom to Hannah, born 12/5/2000 with Congenital Central Hypoventilation Syndrome. Trached at 3 weeks, vented during asleep hours only (Since March 2004). Along with her brother, Justin, they are the joy of my life.
