Smiths Medical ASD, Inc.
Smiths Medical has received complaints for the Level 1 H-31B Air Detector/Clamping Device and Level 1 H-1200 Fast Flow Fluid Warmers with integrated H-31B Air Detector/Clamp. The Air Detector’s clamping mechanism may not close completely on the IV administration set and/or may have sensitive door/tubing secondary alarm interlocks. There is a possibility the fluid flow will not be stopped if air is detected, which could possibly lead to infusion of air into the patient. There is also a potential for a delay in therapy if the secondary alarm is overly sensitive.
Consignees have been asked to contact the manufacturer to arrange for return of unit(s) for service.
