The MHRA have issued an alert that concerns the Sae-Flo MD extension set with Y-connector (lot number 80623/1 only). Manufacturer: Wescott Medical Ltd. Product code: WEPCA200AY. NHS Supply Chain code: FSB025 (England only).
A number of devices from this lot have been reported to leak at the connection between the anti-siphon valve (female Luer) and the tubing. Very few of the leaks were detected during priming. This can lead to inadequate pain relief or treatment of patients.
