ARTG Number: 234421
Recall Action Level Hospital
Recall Action Classification Class I
Recall Action Commencement Date 13/10/2015
Responsible Entity Hospira Pty Limited
Reason/Issue Hospira has determined if “Yes” is selected at the “New Patient” screen, and the program was not cleared prior to powering off the infuser, the Distal Occlusion Pressure setting is assigned a value of 15 PSI (775 mmHg) instead of the default value. In addition, the User Interface will incorrectly display the default Distal Occlusion Pressure value, which is set at 6 PSI (310 mmHg) from the manufacturer, or can be reset in Biomed Mode or received from the Hospira MedNet in a Custom Drug Library.

The user would not be immediately aware of the unintended occlusion pressure setting unless the user views the Current Distal Pressure value on the infuser display and it is greater than the Distal Pressure Alarm Limit. Both the Current Distal Pressure and the Distal Pressure Alarm Limit are visible on the same User Interface screen. This may result in a delay of therapy related to the delay in identifying the occlusion cause, such as kinked tubing.
