  • Causa
    There is a labelling inaccuracy in the instructions for use (ifu) and injection card. the ifu and the injection card contained within the product states that picc testing included 10 pressure injection cycles. this is not correct, it should state that catheter testing included only 5 pressure injection cycles.If it were to be used for more than five (5) pressure injections, it cannot be ruled out that there is a potential risk that the catheter could rupture during injections 6-10. catheter rupture can cause catheter or air embolism, bleeding or ineffective treatment and may require the need for radiologic or surgical intervention. no customer complaints have been received for this issue.
  • Acción
    Customers are notified not to use the device for more than five pressure injections. Future stock will have the IFU and injection card amended to reflect this change. This action has been closed-out on 26/08/2016.
