The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is notifying healthcare professionals and provider organizations of the Class I recall of the Symbiq pump touchscreen. These devices may not respond to user selection, may experience a delayed response or may register a different value from the value selected by the user. Failure of the touchscreen to respond to user input could result in a delay or interruption in therapy or over delivery or under delivery of medication if the user does not confirm the programmed values on the pump's confirmation screen before starting the infusion. All serial numbers for these models are affected by this recall.
The Symbiq infusion pump is a prescription device used to deliver controlled amounts of medications or other fluids to patients through intravenous, intra-arterial, epidural, and other acceptable routes of administration. The touchscreen is used to control infusion pump settings for patient therapy.
