Infusion System Recalled

Posted By Houston Personal Injury Attorney || 16-Mar-2011

The infusion system, B. Braun Outlook 400ES Safety Infusion System, Model Number 621-400ES, has been recalled in a U.S. Food and Drug Administration Class I Recall.

The FDA claims the hardware in the defective medical device may become unresponsive, and can potentially cause the Management Processor to become non-responsive, which then causes normal operation to stop. Although an audible alarm lets medical staff that know the pump is not delivering medicine, no visual warning accompanies the alert.

The FDA regards Class 1 recalls as the most serious type, involving a reasonable probability that use of these recalled products will cause serious adverse health consequences or death. The 400ES devices were manufactured from May 21, 2009 to June 23, 2009 and distributed from July, 24, 2009 to December 31, 2009.

Healthcare professionals and patients are encouraged to report adverse events or side effects related to the use of these Recalled Medical Devices to the FDA's MedWatch Safety Information and Adverse Event Reporting Program at www.fda.gov/MedWatch/report.htm.

After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
