  • Causa
    This is an expansion of a previous recall, initiated by b. braun in january 2012 due to the potential for breakage of the anti free flow clip located inside the infusion pump door. breakage may occur when the iv set anti free flow clip catch is inserted improperly into the pump and the pump door is forced closed. misloading of the anti free flow clip catch may create the potential for free flow of medication. free flow, specially of narrow therapeutic range drugs, can cause life-threatening effects and injuries.This recall action was not notified to the tga before it was initiated by b. braun.
