Issues Caused by Defective Infusion Pumps
There are several other issues commonly associated with defective infusion pumps. The first issue is battery failure due to film buildup, which can make it so patients are not getting the amount of medicine they need. Another issue with defective infusion pumps is that pocket fills may occur. When pocket fills happen, the dosage is injected into the skin instead of into the device, which can result in an unintentional and possibly fatal overdose. When an incorrect dosage of medicine is administered, either over or under the needed amount, a patient can suffer from very difficult symptoms. These may include the following:
- Low blood pressure
- Tingling sensations
- Loss of consciousness
- Return of pain or previous symptoms
