PRODUCT

2008T HEMODIALYSIS SYSTEM W/BIBAG, Part Number 190766, Applicable only with 2008T BlueStar Premium Upgrade Kit, Part Number 191138 Product Usage: Indicated for acute and chronic dialysis therapy.

Recall Number: Z-3195-2018

REASON
In the hemodialysis machine during the cleaning/disinfection program, when there is a power failure or interruption, the dialysis program button should be greyed out when the machine is powered up and a mandatory rinse should be required. However, if a power failure or interruption occurs during the cleaning/disinfection program with the auto-start feature enabled, the machine enters the dialysis program even though the dialysis program button is disabled and the mandatory rinse has not been performed. As a result, disinfecting chemical may not be completely removed from the machine before starting a treatment and disinfectant could exist in the dialysate delivered to the patient.
