  • Causa
    Baxter healthcare will be installing new firmware on all prismaflex control units to address the potential for a small number of these units to exhibit a failure mode with the pump module electronics. the failure mode may result in a “voltage out of range” malfunction alarm, which causes the device to enter a “safe state” and become inoperable until it is serviced. this failure mode can occur at any time during treatment or outside of treatment. to date, there have been no reports of serious injury associated with this issue.
  • Acción
    Baxter advises that a service representative will be in contact with customers to schedule the firmware upgrade to rectify this issue. Until the firmware has been installed, users may continue to use the units that have not exhibited the "Voltage Out of Range" malfunction alarm.
