FDA Warning - DST Might Create Problems For Medical Equipment

When I went to work yesterday, under Daylight Savings Time, my meeting times for recurring meeting times in a popular web meeting software application were inconsistently wrong. Now apply the time change problem to medical devices.

The FDA advises in, Advice for Patients: Change in Daylight Saving Time May Affect Your Medical Equipment in an Unpredictable Way:

"If you have any medical equipment that uses, creates or records time information about your diagnosis or treatment and the manufacturer has not updated it, the equipment may not work properly when Daylight Saving Time (DST) starts and ends."
