Moog FDA IV pump alert


Intravenous news: Medpagetoday report “The FDA upgraded the recall of a number of infusion pumps to Class I due to a software error that can cause the pump to shut down.

The error causes the pumps to register “Error Code 45 (EC45)” due to a software anomaly, which causes the pump to deactivate and can lead to potentially deadly adverse events due to an interruption of therapy. The recall — initiated by pump manufacturer Moog — includes the Curlin 6000 CMS, Curlin 6000 CMS IOD, PainSmart, and PainSmart IOD devices manufactured and updated from May 2007 to February 2011, a statement from the company said.

Moog issued a recall notice on Feb. 28, 2011 to customers with affected pumps, which asked customers to return devices that exhibited the shutdown-inducing error, the statement said. To date, no adverse events have been reported.”
