Is anybody experiencing this vent rebooting itself without any alarms? It takes about 30 seconds to return to patient ventilation.
I don't know about that problem, but the Esprit is under a recall since 6/08/01 for some other problem. Perhaps there is a relationship?
Here is the FDA notice (updated as late as 7/10/03, they say):
FDA (CDRH) Recall Notice
I would have imagined that the recall would have been completed by now, but perhaps you can get more info from Respironics regarding the relevance to your issues.
[*** UPDATE: 7/31 **
According to the FDA report, the firm initiated recall of the ESPRIT Model V1000 was completed 7/10/03, so your problem is not related to that]
