Medtronic infusion set recall

This article was originally published in The Gray Sheet

Executive Summary

Medtronic is recalling specific lots of its Quick-set infusion set used with the MiniMed Paradigm insulin pumps; the set is a replaceable plastic tube that delivers insulin from the pump to the diabetes patient. Medtronic recently discovered that about 2% of the sets in a lot of about 60,000 may not allow the pump to vent air properly, which could cause the device to deliver the wrong amount of insulin. Medtronic is advising patients to check to see which box numbers are being recalled. The company will replace the affected products for free. Medtronic estimates about 3 million Quick-set sets are currently with customers
