  • Causa
    Medtronic has become aware of a potential safety issue that can occur if insulin or other fluids come in contact with the inside of the connector on medtronic paradigm infusion sets. this recall also provides information on how to prevent this from occurring. exposure of the inside of the tubing connector to fluid is most likely to occur if insulin is spilled on the top of the insulin reservoir when the reservoir is removed from the transfer guard after filling the reservoir from a vial of insulin. if this occurs the insulin can temporarily block the vents in the connector that allow the pump to properly prime. if these vents are blocked this can potentially result in too much or too little insulin being delivered which may cause hypoglycemia or hyperglycemia which in extreme cases may cause loss of consciousness or death.
