  • Causa
    The manufacturer, q core, has received three similar reports from a customer, who experienced deviations from the duration of treatment, as programmed. the incidents occurred while using the multi step mode. while no patient injuries or deaths have been reported, the issue may result in incorrect therapy. specifically, the issue only occurs when the following conditions are met simultaneously:- multi-step mode is used, and- the pump is not plugged into an ac power outlet and is operating on battery power only, and- the pump backlight is turned off.The factory default for the backlight configuration in the sapphire multi therapy pump is on; therefore unless the pump backlight is turned off, the issue will not occur.
  • Acción
    Q Core has developed a software solution (Rev09Ver08) to address the issue. Until the Sapphire Multi Therapy pumps have been updated with the new software, users are required to: (i)Use the Sapphire Multi Therapy pump plugged into an AC power outlet; and/or (ii)Use the Sapphire Multi Therapy pump with the backlight configuration set to ON or PARTIAL. It is recommended to check all pumps that are in current operation in order to ensure correct setting of the backlight.

The pumps configured to have the backlight OFF require reconfiguration of the backlight setting to ON.
