Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
The extension set has a high probability of potential failure which could lead to possible leakage or detachment at the device's bonded joint during use. The issue may result in delay of therapy, increased risk of bloodstream infections (BSI), and may expose both patients and healthcare workers to hazardous medications. Depending on the nature of the leak and type of infusion, there is also the potential for life-threatening situations to occur including air embolization or hypovolemia.
