Baxter has become aware of the remote possibility for hemolyzed blood to be returned to the donor after a specific maintenance procedure. Chapter 6 “Maintenance” in the Amicus Operator’s Manual describes a procedure for cleaning the pump head after a blood or fluid spill. To address this issue, Baxter is updating the Amicus Operator’s Manual to remove the maintenance step instructing users to perform the lubrication of the pump head. Instead, qualified Baxter personnel will perform this task during routine servicing and/or preventative maintenance.
