Manufacturer Narrative
A device history record review could not be performed because a lot number was not received with the complaint. As part of our manufacturing process, all device history records are reviewed and approved by quality, prior to release of product. Because a sample was not returned, we were unable to perform a thorough follow up investigation to include functional and visual evaluations to confirm the reported issue and root cause analysis. Functional testing and visual inspections are being performed according to our current quality standards and inspection procedures. If additional information is obtained, or the sample is returned, this file will be re-opened for further investigation. As no trends or triggers have been found a corrective and/or preventive action is not deemed necessary at this time. It must be noted that in-process controls such as personnel training, incoming quality acceptance testing for raw material, 100% in process visual inspection and visual acceptance sampling are in place to prevent nonconforming product from leaving the manufacturing facility. This complaint will be used for qa tracking and trending purposes. If information is provided in the future, a supplemental report will be issued.
 
Manufacturer Narrative
Submit date: (b)(6) 2017. An investigation is currently underway. Upon completion, the results will be forwarded.
 
Event Description
The customer reports that a 3. 5 double lumen umbilical vessel catheter (uvc) broke during use when infusing iv fluids and iv nutrition. There was slow oozing from the cracked portion of the line and persisted for 36 hours before it was noted that the uvc was cracked when a manual flush of the line was attempted. The customer further reports that this placed the baby at increased risk of infection. The baby needed to be poked unnecessarily for an iv.
