    BD will arrange for a product correction (i.e. software upgrade) to mitigate the issues. In the interim, users are advised that if error code 351.6610 occurs, the user can clear the channel error by pressing “CONFIRM”. After the channel error is cleared on the PC unit, the user can detach and re-attach the module to restart the infusion, or power off the PC unit and then power back on to restart a new infusion. The user should replace the affected Syringe module as soon as possible and isolate the Alaris Syringe module that exhibits the channel error code.
