DESIGN: Device Design
Action All customers were notified by letter on 06/17/2010, describing the affected product and advising them of the possible malfunctioning alarm in the case a user does not follow the instructions as specified in the Triton Operation Manual. The letter also reminded all users to follow the procedures in the IFUs. The firm stated that it was best if customers re-educated all nurses on the proper door closure procedure to help prevent the potential bypass issue from occurring. Attached to the letter were two pages explaining the proper process for closing the pump door. Follow-up phone calls were made to coordinate an upgrade to all affected pumps. Questions or concerns should be directed to Ross Kurz at 720-531-4933.
