REASON
There are two situations that may occur when using the GemStar Docking Station, List Number 13075-XX-XX, in conjunction with the GemStar infusion pump: 1) when the Docking Station is used in conjunction with a GemStar Phase 3 pump (List 13000-XX, 13100-XX, or 13150-XX) the potential exists for the GemStar Phase 3 pump to fail to power up while connected to the Docking Station, and 2) when either a GemStar Phase 3 (List 13000-XX, 13100-XX, or 13150-XX)or GemStar Phase 4 pump (List 13086-XX, 13087-XX, or 13088-XX) is used in conjunction with both a Docking Station and an External Battery Pack accessory (List 13073-XX) there exists a possibility that the GemStar pump will display error code 11/003 and give an audible alarm indicating excessive input voltage from the external sources. If the GemStar pump detects what is perceived to be more than 3.6 Volts measured on the external voltage input, the pump will stop the infusion and alarm both with an audible sound as well as a visual alarm.
