MedSun: Newsletter #56, January 2011

FDA MedWatch Safety Alert

When the addEASE binary connector is inserted into a partial additive bag (PAB) stopper, fragments of the stopper may enter the bag, resulting in a small amount of visible particles in the solution. The particles can potentially enter a patient's body and lead to serious adverse health consequences, such as pulmonary embolism, stroke, or heart attack. B Braun sent an Urgent Medical Device Recall letter to its customers informing them of the recall and advising them to immediately stop using or distributing addEASE connectors.
