  • Causa
    Internal testing has identified that the one-way check valve (pillow valve) included in the fms outflow tubing set and the fms intermediary tubing set may occasionally not be performing as intended. if the instructions described in the fms duo system and solo system operator's manuals are not followed, this may result in backflow of irrigation fluid into the "one day" set, and when used with affected tubing, could potentially lead to patient cross-contamination. please note that the backflow of irrigation fluid can only occur if the check valve is not working properly and the pressure line is disconnected or the tension rocker is open.
  • Acción
    Customers are asked to quarantine any affected stock and return it to JJM. Customers are also advised that when connected properly and used in accordance with the system’s Operating Manual, tubing with an affected check valve will not allow backflow of irrigation fluid into the One Day Set, and would not lead to potential patient cross-contamination. It is important to follow up with potentially affected patients per each institution’s Infectious Disease/Needle stick protocol.
