Triton Pole Mount Infusion Pump by WalkMed: Recall - Potential Door Open Alarm Problem
MedSun: Newsletter #55, December 2010

FDA MedWatch Safety Alert

If the pump door is not closed and latched per the instructions for use located on the side of the pump and in the operator manual, the pump door open alarm may not alert the user to this condition. It is then possible for the pump mechanism not to be engaged and a gravity feed flow condition to exist if the pump operator has not checked tube set for flow prior to starting the pump. This could result in over infusion of medication. Consumers who have Triton Pole Mount Infusion Pumps which are being recalled should return the pump to the manufacturer.
