Action Baxter sent the 12/13/05 Urgent Device Correction letter to all Colleague Infusion Pump customers, to the attention of the Director of Nursing and the Biomedical Engineer, via first class mail to alert them to additional problems with the pump that may interrupt therapy. These issues include battery undercharging, generation of false air detected alarms due to IV administration set tugging, gearbox wear, underinfusion and non-detection of upstream occlusions. The letters included mitigating instructions to reduce the occurrence of these potential problems, and included a copy of the Battery Usage Guide, Infusion Management Guide, and the March 17, 2005 Buretrol Set Urgent Device Correction letter to be provided to all users of the Colleague pump. Baxter informed the accounts that they would be notified when the new release of the Colleague Volumetric Infusion Pump Operator''s Manual is available.
