  • Causa
    Risk of leakage or air embolism due to hub cracking at the female luer connector during delivery of infusions containing lipids.Teleflex medical has determined that the material used in the manufacture of these stopcocks is not lipid resistant and could be weakened during the administration of lipid solutions. these stopcocks, and the kits containing them, should be used only to administer non-lipid containing solutions. teleflex originally issued a field safety notice (fsn) in march 2009 that highlighted these risks. however, the sample product label in this fsn carried an extra warning not to use 70% isopropyl alcohol on the stopcocks. after further testing, teleflex has determined that these stopcocks (distributed in the united kingdom) can in fact be wiped with 70% isopropyl alcohol solutions without harmful effects. as a consequence, teleflex has now issued an amended fsn in july 2009 with a revised product label.This medical device alert has been issued due to the widespread use of these stopcocks and to ensure that all users are aware of this amended field safety corrective action.
