Medtronic Minimed Infusion Sets

Medtronic Minimed Infusion Sets

Recall - potential for over-delivery of insulin and risk of hypoglycaemia Consumers and health professionals are advised that Medtronic Australasia, in consultation with the TGA, is recalling specific lots of Medtronic MiniMed infusion sets, including MiniMed Quick-set, MiniMed mio, MiniMed Silhouette and MiniMed Sure-T. Medtronic MiniMed infusion sets are used in conjunction with an insulin pump to deliver a continuous dose of insulin to help people with diabetes maintain normal blood glucose levels. There have been recent reports of potential over-delivery of insulin shortly after an infusion set change. Over-delivery of insulin can cause hypoglycaemia (low blood glucose level), which can lead to serious health complications. Subsequent investigations have found that this issue may be caused by fluid blocking the infusion set membrane during the priming/fill-tubing process. A membrane blocked by fluid most likely occurs if insulin, alcohol or water is spilled on the top of the reservoir or inside the tubing connector, which could prevent the insulin set from working properly. Updated infusion sets contain a new and enhanced membrane material that significantly reduces this risk. People who have Medtronic MiniMed infusion sets are instructed to check the lot numbers either by visiting a Medtronic website or by calling Medtronic to see if their products are affected (see the 'Information for consumers' or 'Information for health professionals' sections below for further details). Information for consumers Medtronic Australasia has written to consumers who have Medtronic MiniMed infusion sets to provide further information about this issue, include details of the recall procedure and instructions regarding the priming/fill-tubing process (called 'Key Steps').

Bio .2008 2011..I Am A Mother Of A Diabetic Child Type 1 Diabetic Mom T1D (@mel7ofelfel) Instagram photos and videos List of Instagram medias taken by Type 1 Diabetic Mom T1D (@mel7ofelfel) The University of British Columbia and Vancouver Coastal Health are testing a possible diabetes cure that replaces a persons damaged pancreatic cells with new ones grown in the lab.The replacement cells are grown from embryonic stem cells. Researchers believe that if the new cells mature, multiply, and behave as hoped, recipients would be able to lessen or even eliminate their dependence on self-injected insulin. They might also be spared from having to continually monitor their blood sugar, usually by pricking their fingers several times a day. The trial could involve about 10 or more people in Vancouver with a severe form of type 1 diabetes, in which a persons immune system attacks the pancreas, degrading or eliminating its ability to produce insulin.A UBC-Vancouver Coastal Health team, supported by a $500,000 grant from the Stem Cell Network of Canada, implanted the cells into one person in late December at Vancouver General Hospital, and they hope to do more implants in coming weeks. Participants will be followed for two years to see if the implanted cells mature into insulin-producing beta cells and other cells capable of controlling a persons blood sugar, and whether there are significant side effects.The implants are part of a larger clinical trial by San Diego-based ViaCyte, a biotechnology company that plans to test the cell-replacement therapy on approximately 40 patients in the U.S. and Canada.The implanted cells originally came from a single embryonic cell line, a type of cell capable of becoming any other type of cell in the body. ViaCyte has developed a technique for c Continue reading >>

Medtronic Announces Voluntary Recall Of Diabetes Infusion Sets

Medtronic Announces Voluntary Recall Of Diabetes Infusion Sets

United States Recall News Alerts for Recalled Drugs, Food, Products, & Vehicles You are here: Home / Food Recalls / FDA Press Releases / Medtronic Announces Voluntary Recall of Diabetes Infusion Sets Medtronic Announces Voluntary Recall of Diabetes Infusion Sets Medtronic plc (NYSE:MDT) announced today that it has started to inform patients worldwide of a voluntary recall of specific lots of infusion sets used with all models of Medtronic insulin pumps. The recall is related to a certain discontinued component in these infusion sets and does not include insulin pumps or glucose sensors. The company determined, through recent field reports from patients and root cause analysis, that a component, the vent membrane, in the recalled infusion sets may be susceptible to being blocked by fluid during the process of priming/fill-tubing. This situation can lead to potential over-delivery of insulin shortly after an infusion set change, which may cause hypoglycemia. Currently manufactured infusion sets, available to patients since April 2017, include a design update of this component which the company believes reduces the risk of insulin over-delivery after an infusion set change. The company will work with patients to ensure recalled infusion sets with the discontinued component are returned and replaced with new infusion sets containing the updated component at no cost. Medtronic has contacted the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), along with other regulatory bodies around the world, to share information related to this issue. Medtronic will continue working directly with government and regulatory authorities on this global voluntary recall. Our priority is to work with our patients to mitigate risk to patient safety. While we have shipped a significant number of the new Continue reading >>

Leak Prompts Medtronic to Issue a Recall of Certain Lots of Insulin Pump Reservoirs Medtronic is recalling certain lots of its model MMT-326A (1.8 mL) and MMT-332A (3.0 mL) insulin reservoirs, used with its Paradigm insulin pumps , because the reservoirs may leak. A leak in the reservoir can cause patients to receive less insulin than intended, resulting in dangerously high blood sugar levels. High glucose levels can lead to a condition known as diabetic ketoacidosis. Additionally, should an insulin blockage occur in the infusion set, an alarm intended to warn users may not sound. An investigation by Medtronic showed that problem is caused by abnormal wear on a manufacturing tool used in the production of reservoir stoppers, according to Diabetes.co.uk. Medtronic is instructing customers to check the lot number on their pump reservoir by using an online tool found at Medtronicdiabetes.com/checklots. If they have been using one of the recalled reservoirs, they should stop using them, dispose of them, and contact Medtronic to receive a free replacement. Customers affected by the recall should go back to their insulin injection plans, Diabetes.co.uk reported. 24-Hour Multi-Patient Use Endoscope Connectors: Letter to HealthCare Providers and Healthcare Facilities - Risk of Cross-Contamination - the recommended instructions and device design for the ERBEFLO port connector do not adequately mitigate the risks of cross-contamination for Continue reading >>

Medtronic Insulin Pump Lawsuits

Medtronic Insulin Pump Lawsuits

Drug Dangers Defective Medical Devices Medtronic Insulin Pump Lawsuits The Medtronic insulin pump is a medical device that makes it easier and more convenient to receive a daily dose of insulin. It consists of a small box about the size of a cell phone which can be kept in the pocket or worn on a belt. The pump delivers insulin through an infusion set which is connected to a cannula placed under the skin of the abdomen. In addition to making insulin administration more convenient, the Medtronic MiniMed insulin pump system provides a continuous supply of insulin which is intended to closely match the function of a healthy pancreas. The pump can also deliver on-demand or preprogramed boluses of insulin based on diet and blood sugar demands. In a person with a healthy pancreas, the body naturally produces insulin to utilize sugar absorbed in the diet and maintain energy levels. In people with diabetes, this system does not function correctly. In type 1 diabetes, the pancreas cannot make insulin and replacement therapy must be used. Type 2 diabetics may be able to secrete insulin, but the body does not respond to it as it should. They may be unable to make enough, or body cells have become resistant. In some cases, diet and medications may be sufficient to control blood sugar but in other cases, insulin therapy may be required. When a diabetic is insulin dependent, he or she must supply the body with insulin from an outside source usually an injection. For patients who use insulin injections, sometimes multiple daily injections are required to control blood sugar. The pump has replaced the needs for many people, providing a more convenient and hygienic method for insulin administration. Unfortunately, some Medtronic insulin pump users have experienced insulin overdose due Continue reading >>

Dh Notified Of Recall Of Specific Lots Of Minimed Infusion Sets

Dh Notified Of Recall Of Specific Lots Of Minimed Infusion Sets

DH notified of recall of specific lots of MiniMed Infusion Sets Hong Kong (HKSAR) - The Department of Health (DH) today (September 12) received notification from medical device manufacturer Medtronic Hong Kong Medical Limited (Medtronic) on its voluntary recall of specific lots of MiniMed Infusion Sets due to a potential safety concern. According to the information provided by Medtronic, the MiniMed Infusion Sets are used with Medtronic insulin pumps. Medtronic has recently received reports of potential over-delivery of insulin after changing of infusion set. The manufacturer's investigation revealed that the problem could be caused by fluid blocking the infusion set membrane during the priming/fill-tubing process. A membrane blocked by fluid most likely occurs if insulin, alcohol, or water is spilled on the top of the insulin reservoir which can then prevent the infusion set from working properly. The manufacturer said that new infusion sets currently being shipped contain an enhanced membrane material that can significantly reduce the risk concerned. While patients with new and enhanced infusion sets that are not part of the recall can continue to use their sets, those who are using the infusion sets being recalled should carefully follow the key steps regarding the priming/fill-tubing process as advised by the manufacturer before they can obtain new sets. "Over-delivery of insulin can cause hypoglycemia and in extreme cases, death. We noted that the manufacturer has received relevant reports of hypoglycemia requiring medical intervention overseas. So far, the DH has not received any reports of adverse incidents related to the affected lots of infusion sets in Hong Kong," a spokesman for the DH said. Patients using the affected devices should visit the manufacturer's Continue reading >>
