Medical Device Alert: Alaris syringe pumps

The Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has issued a medical device alert for Alaris syringe pumps manufactured by CareFusion. This updates and replaces the alert that was published in December 2016 (MDA/2016/023), as the manufacturer has now identified the potential for unintended bolus of medication when any syringe type is used in a pump that contains a broken spring in the plunger assembly. 

Further details of the alert and action to take are available on the MHRA website.
