T34 syringe pumps MHRA alert

17th April 2018

CME Limited has identified that there can be a +/- 2mm overall size difference between battery brands used with their T34 ambulatory syringe pumps. This could result in battery movement within the battery housing leading to a possible loss of connection and the pump shutting down. MHRA have stated that before use and after each battery change health professionals should check the batteries have adequate connection and that technical staff responsible for servicing the pumps should ensure battery checks are included as part of the regular maintenance programme.
