  • Reason
    Smiths medical has become aware that certain non-flow-stop cadd medication cassette reservoirs may have been manufactured with an incorrect pressure plate. this product is designed without an arch, but the defective product has a plate with an arch.There is a risk that under delivery of medication may result from the tubing becoming partially or completely occluded when the cassette is attached to the pump. the clinician is not aware of the issue because the pump will continue to operate as if it is infusing medication without alarming for an occlusion.
  • Action
    Smiths Medical is advising users to quarantine remaining stock of the affected product for return for credit. It is recommended that users transition to an equivalent flow stop version of the CADD Medication cassettes.
