Insulin pump alert from FDA


Intravenous products: FDA report “In July, Medtronic recalled certain infusion sets which are used with the company’s Mini-Med Paradigm insulin pumps to deliver insulin to diabetic patients. Because of a manufacturing error, the vents on these sets may clog and then fail to equalize the air pressure in the reservoir compartment with the surrounding atmosphere. If this happens, the pump could deliver too much or too little insulin to the patient, and that could lead to serious injury or death.”
