Air embolism risk: Baxter has initiated a voluntary recall of its Buretrol Solution Sets because the ball-valve feature may not function as expected

0

Intravenous products: The FDA report “Baxter Healthcare Corp. (Baxter) has initiated a voluntary recall of its Buretrol Solution Sets because the ball-valve feature may not function as expected. Baxter has determined that the ball-valve component is allowing air to flow past the valve and enter the tubing once the pre-measured amount of fluids is completely administered to the patient. If the air is not removed, the air present in the tubing may enter the patient’s vascular system potentially causing air in the bloodstream (an air embolism). This product may cause serious adverse health consequences, including death.”
