  • Causa
    The programmed 100 system conductivity alarm limits are checked and confirmed during the machine self-test. when sodium level is changed during therapy, new conductivity alarm limits are automatically restored based on new operator programming. identified the existence of a sequence of events that may delay the reestablishment of the new conductivity alarm limits, when the sodium level is programmed to higher values ​​than previously used. this delay can only occur if the dialysate or extracorporeal alarms also occur within seven minutes of changing the sodium. if dialysis is being performed using sodium chloride-free bicarbonate concentrates (fresenius or cobe / gambro) and occurs in the sequence of events below, this may lead to metabolic acidosis. - sodium increase above 8meq / l. - extracorporeal alarms or continuous or recurrent dialysis alarms, starting seven minutes after increasing sodium levels. - stopping the bicarbonate concentrate pump before the new conductivity limits are established it is important to note that if the dialysis is being carried out using bicarbonate concentrate with sodium chloride, any to the bicarbonate pump would be detected, not being applied so the sequence of events described above.
  • Acción
    Baxter will be reconfiguring by changing the BA alarm limits of the 1000 system hemodialysis machine ensuring its correct operation. These changes will prevent the undetected delivery of acid bath in the occurrence of a change in sodium level above 8 meq / L. The 1000 system operator and service manuals are being updated to reflect changes in calibration constants. The company informs you that upon receipt of the completed form you will be sending the updated section of the operation and service manual.
