19:20 EDTCFNCareFusion issues recall for Alaris syringe pump
The FDA reported that an error in CareFusion's Alaris syringe pump model 8110 triggers a visual and audible alarm and causes the pump to stop supplying infusion to the patient. "Even when the user clears the error code... the syringe pump does not respond to key presses until the product is detached and reattached to the PC unit used to program, monitor and provide power to the syringe pump. Failure of syringe module may result in a delay or interruption of therapy and can lead to serious patient injury or death," said the report. CareFusion has received 108 reports of the issue occurring. There have been no reports of permanent injury or death. The firm informed customers of the problem in a July 20 letter and indicated the company will contact all affected customers within 60 days to schedule a repair. Reference Link
