    Pump, Infusion - Product Code FRN
  • Reason
    Failures within the pca profile as well as incidents resulting in interruptions of therapy in various profiles.
  • Action
    Baxter sent recall letters dated 11/14/05 to all of their 6060 pump customers on the same date via DHL overnight delivery. The accounts were informed of the reports of failures within the PCA profile and interruptions of therapy in various profiles. Due to the obsolescence of certain critical components, Baxter is conducting a controlled removal of all 6060 pumps from the market. Baxter will coordinate with customers individually to ensure a smooth transition to a substitute device. Baxter provided interim instructions to discontinue use of the PCA profile to avoid over infusion or non-delivery conditions, and to discontinue the use of the pump for therapies where interruption of the infusion could cause immediate patient harm. Baxter representatives telephoned each account within 48 hours of the letter, and visited them within a week to help the customers transition to other infusion pumps. A press release issued on 11/15/05. Baxter sent a follow-up recall letter to the accounts on 6/20/06, informing them that service repairs for the 6060 Infusion Pump will cease after 12/31/06, and compensation requests cannot be processed for pumps received after 12/31/06. Production of sets for the 6060 will cease on 10/1/06, and will not be available after 12/31/06. The accounts were requested to complete and fax back to Baxter the enclosed reply form, indicating the current inventory of 6060 pumps remaining at the facility.
