Industry warning over potentially-faulty infusion pump


Device could suffer from delays

A warning has been issued amid concerns that a range of infusion pumps commonly used in hospitals across the UK could fail.

The Plum A+ devices, manufactured by Hospira, carry the list numbers 12391 and 20792 and are now the subject of a Medical Device Alert issued by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) following an earlier field safety notice from the manufacturer.

The latest warning states that there are fears of a ‘possible delay in therapy due to continuous recycling and/or rebooting if the LED display settings are adjusted from the original default settings’.
