In Uncategorized on December 15, 2011 at 5:34 pm

Draeger Medical’s Infinity Acute Care system, used to monitor patient vital signs and therapy, got a Class I recall from the FDA over concerns that its weight-based drug dosage calculator may make dangerously high recommendations.

The system may even recommend a dose as much as 10 times higher than that the safe amount, and “may cause serious adverse health consequences, including death,” according to the FDA.

In addition, the Infinity system’s electrocardiogram and blood pressure monitors may displaying DATA with a 5 or 10 second delay.
