  • Causa
    The uk medical devices agency (mda) has issued a safety note informing hospitals that it continues to receive reports of high doses of infusion resulting from user-free flowing by mismanaging the devices of the pumps mentioned. the mda states that poorly handled apparatus can interfere with the pump mechanism, resulting in a free flow at the start of the infusion. while the infusion happens the assembly positions correctly and the fluid adjusts to the set of programmed instructions. the mda states that in such cases, even if the user can detect the high doses of infusion by examining the amount of fluid in the bag, the inadequate loading will not be detected, since the assembly will not be properly positioned. in addition, the infused volume display will not show the wrong extra volume due to the initial free-flow.
  • Acción

(2) Do not operate the orange lock before the lower set adapter is fully inserted into the air-in-line switch. (3) Do not close the door before operating the orange latch. (4) Make sure that no fluid is present and that no drop is dripping into the chamber at the time of opening of the assembly clamp prior to the start of infusion.
