Device Use

The BodyGuard Infusion Pump System delivers fluids or medications into a patient's body in controlled amounts. The pump administers fluids through an infusion tubing set into a patient's vein or through other cleared routes of administration. The system is used in adult care in a hospital and home care environment.  The Microset Infusion Set (catalog umber A120-003XYVA) is one of the infusion sets that may be used with the BodyGuard Infusion Pump System.

Reason for Recall 

CME America has identified that specific Microset Infusion Sets, Catalog Number A120-003XYVA, which have an extended section of tubing longer than standard lengths, prohibitively restrict medication flow to the pumping chamber of the infusion pump.  This restriction may result in under-infusion of the therapy. The patient may not receive the appropriate treatment, which could cause serious adverse health consequences including death.

CME America has received three complaints of under-infusion, but no injuries or deaths have been reported.  The issue was found during pump set-up testing, prior to use on patients.

Who May be Affected

  • Health care providers using the BodyGuard Microset Infusion Set
  • Home care providers using the BodyGuard Microset Infusion Set
  • Patients who may receive fluids or medications delivered by the recalled Infusion Set
