T34 syringe pumps updated safety warning

7th September 2018

CME Ltd have published an updated Field Safety Notice specifying the brand of battery that should be used in T34 syringe pumps, along with precautionary measures, to ensure adequate connection and functioning.

The recommended battery for the T34 syringe pump is Duracell® brand 9-volt (6LR61) battery.

This follows the MHRA Safety Alert in April 2018 regarding the possible loss of function due to the battery connection from different battery brands (see our news item).

The Association of Palliative Medicine (APM) has also produced a joint statement with the MHRA highlighting the issue.
