Recall Number Z-0209-201

Hospira has received reports of distal pressure sensor calibration drift on Plum A+ Infusers. The following error codes may be displayed during setup or infusion signifying possible calibration drift: E180/N180, E181/N181, E186/N186, E187/N187 or E346. Additionally, if the pressure sensor calibration has drifted, users may experience false distal occlusion alarms or distal occlusions that may not be detected. These errors invoke visual and audible warnings to the user. Hospira has identified the following design attributes of the pressure sensor that may cause the calibration to drift sooner than expected: strain gage protective layers’ moisture resistance issues, pressure assembly chassis residual structural stress issues, and relaxation of clamping force from mounting screws for strain gage and pin stack.
