Certain Medfusion Syringe Pump Models, Series 3100, 3500, and 4000, may not recognize or may misidentify loaded medication syringes. The inability of a pump to recognize a syringe (i.e. the size of the syringe is unknown to the pump) results in an inability to complete pump programming. Misidentification of a syringe is where the pump misinterprets the syringe size.
