CareFusion Issues Recall for Faulty Air-In-Line Sensor

Feb. 13, 2017

CareFusion recalled the Alaris Syringe Pump because of a faulty air-in-line sensor which could generate a false alarm and cause the syringe pump to stop supplying an infusion to the patient, which could cause serious adverse health consequences or death.

The device delivers fluids such as nutrients, blood and medications in controlled amounts. If the sensor is faulty, the infusion may be interrupted. The recall is for product manufactured between October 2011 and June 2015. — Cynthia Jessup
