    ICU Medical will be contacting users and arranging for inspection of all affected Plum 360 infusers. The chassis will be replaced as required. In the interim, ICU Medical is advising users to inspect the affected Plum 360 Infusers using the instructions provided in the customer letter in order to verify that the infuser is working. If at the end of testing a loose CE module or blank display is observed, the infuser is to be removed from service, and the user is to record the S/N and contact the ICU Service Department. Otherwise, the infuser can be returned to clinical use. If the Plum 360 Infuser powers down without an alarm notification during infusion, use another Plum 360 Infuser for infusion or consider use of alternative infusion methods based on the clinical situation.
