Dear Valued Customer,
On August 20, 2007, Aspect Medical announced that the BIS™ A-2000 monitoring system (#186-0118) would be
discontinued. In September of 2009, Aspect Medical was acquired by Covidien. As part of the product obsolescence
process, Covidien has honored the commitment to provide service and support for the A-2000 Monitoring System
for seven years following the discontinuation announcement.
This letter serves as a reminder that we have now exceeded the end-of-service date. As of September 29, 2016,
Medtronic will no longer provide maintenance service, repair or parts for the A-2000 Monitoring System, including
the refurbishing of the DSC-XP Pre-Amp, (DSC-XP REFURBISHED), code 186-0157-RFB.
As a valued BIS™ customer, Covidien would like to take this opportunity to advise you of some of the latest BIS™
technology available. This includes BIS™ VISTA complete two-channel and four-channel systems. BIS™ VISTA
complete systems offer enhanced capabilities such as:
Enhanced EEG processing (BIS complete 4-channel Monitor)
Expanded programmability and data accessibility
Color LCD touch screen for ease of use
We are confident that you will find the current portfolio of BIS™ conscious monitoring solutions impressive. Should
you choose to upgrade your A-2000 monitoring system platform, Covidien will be pleased to provide your facility
with an uninterrupted, seamless integration, plus new device in-service training for clinical and biomedical staff.
Thank you for your business and use of the A-2000 monitoring system to deliver quality patient care over the years.
We encourage you to contact or your local Covidien sales representative or Customer Service at 1-800-252-467
(Australia) / 0508-489-264 (New Zealand) with any questions or to learn more about the latest BIS™ technology.
