    Recalling Organisation: Gambro Pty Ltd (NZ), 5B Target Court, Glenfield, Auckland 0753
  • Reason
    Gambro has received some complaints related to a technical error which will stop all the pumps and close the venous clamp. one section in the operator's manuals for the ak 200 s and the ak 200 ultra s instructs the user to contact technical service and to restart the blood pump to return the extracorporeal blood to the patient. restarting the blood pump is however not possible, since the venous clamp is closed and the consequence will be a blood loss for the patient.
