Manufactured by Caesarea Medical Electronics (CME) Ltd – a variation in battery size can cause problems with connections in the battery housing” MHRA (2018).

MHRA report “The manufacturer has identified that there can be a +/- 2mm overall size difference between battery brands used with CME’s T34 ambulatory syringe pumps.

This could result in battery movement within the battery housing leading to a possible loss of connection. This may result in the pump shutting down.

Be aware that if the pump’s battery connectors and/or housing are inadvertently damaged during these checks, and the pump is outside of the warranty period, the manufacturer may charge for pump repair/replacement.”
