Disetronic Recalls D-TRON Pumps
In a letter dated February 10, 2003, Disetronic Medical Systems issued a recall of all D-TRON insulin pumps because of a potential problem that could lead to an unintended bolus of insulin. The D-TRON pumps will be replaced with the D-TRONplus pump.
D-TRON users are instructed to stop using the standard bolus function immediately, and to use the scroll bolus function instead. Instructions on how to use the scroll bolus function are included in the recall notice mailed to all D-TRON users, and are also in the D-TRON user's manual. By following these instructions, D-TRON users can safely use their pump until it is replaced with the D-TRONplus, which is expected to happen no later than April 30, 2003.
This information applies only to D-TRON users in the Unites States, who can call 1-800-688-4578 if they have any questions.
