Back in 2009 Medtronic, recalled specific lots of “Quick-set infusion sets” that are used with MiniMed Paradigm insulin pumps. “An infusion set is a thin plastic tube used to deliver insulin from an insulin pump to a diabetes patient, and is typically replaced by the patient every three days.” Reference numbers MMT-396, MMT-397, MMT-398 and MMT-399 for the infusion sets are affected, bu only those with lot numbers starting with the number “8.” The problem that led to recall was that approximately two percent of “Lot 8” Quick-set infusion sets (approximately 60,000 infusion sets out of 3 million infusion sets with customers) may not allow the insulin pump to vent air pressure properly. The result is that the device will deliver too much or too little insulin and which would in turn could lead to serious injury or death.
