  • Causa
    Medtronic has become aware of recent reports of potential over-delivery of insulin shortly after an infusion set change. over-delivery of insulin can cause hypoglycaemia and in extreme cases, death. medtronic has received reports of hypoglycaemia requiring medical intervention potentially related to this issue. out of the millions of infusion sets sold each year, the reported incident rate requiring medical assistance related to this issue is less than 0.00005%. there have been no reports of death related to this issue.An investigation by medtronic has shown this issue can be caused by fluid blocking the infusion set membrane during the priming/fill-tubing process. a membrane blocked by fluid most likely occurs if insulin, alcohol, or water is spilled on the top of the reservoir or inside the tubing connector which then could prevent the infusion set from working properly.
