  • Causa
    Carefusion has identified potential risks with model code 2000e and lot numbers listed due to connection issues. the affected smartsite connector lots may unintentionally disconnect from a female luer, may be difficult to disconnect from a female luer, or may fail to disconnect from a female luer once attached. leakage may also be observed if the connector disconnects from the female luer during infusion. an inability to disconnect may require replacement of a line.
  • Acción
    Carefusion is requesting users to segregate and return unused stock of connectors with polycarbonate housing to Carefusion. Polycarbonate materials were introduced because they provide more resistance to isopropyl alcohol than the acrylic housing hub. Now that the 2000E polycarbonate version will no longer be available, please remind staff that when accessing the valve, remember to Swab The Hub every time, do not swab the whole body of the device and take care to follow instructions during connection and disconnection of the SmartSite connector.
