Reason for Recall: The Dose Error Reduction System (DERS) can potentially give an incorrect recommended value for the pump infusion rate during the initial infusion setup. This is due to a specific key sequence when the override feature of the DERS drug limits is activated. A device malfunction can result in an increased risk of over-infusion or under-infusion if the infusion is started with this rate value. This can cause serious adverse health consequences, including death.
