Baxter subsidiary Baxa hit by Class I recall of nutrition calculation software

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The US FDA has designated Baxa's warning over its Abacus total parenteral nutrition calculation software as a Class I recall, the most serious of its kind. Pharmacists use the software to create or calculate formulas for parenteral nutrition, which is given intravenously to patients who cannot eat or drink via the mouth. However, dosing errors can occur with the software if the wrong ordering template is used, which could potentially lead to serious adverse events or death.
