  • Reason
    The manufacturer has observed a software bug when using the substitution bolus function during crrt treatment. in one case, the substitution bolus unplanned did not stop after 100ml. in the worst case, the start of the substitution bolus is not controlled and stopped automatically and continues until it is stopped manually by the user. this situation can lead to a serious burden on the patient of excessive fluid and consequently a serious deterioration of the health status or even death of the patient. the cause of the error was determined to be software version 5.2. until we have provided you with an upgraded version of our software, it is our strict recommendation not to use the replacement bolus function.
