MedStream Infusion Pump Lawsuit

MedStream Infusion Pump Lawsuit

The FDA and Codman & Shurtleff, Inc. have recalled the MedStream Infusion Pump. This medical device is implanted in patients to deliver Morphine and/or Baclofen, which treat muscle pain and spasms. Unfortunately, air in the pump reservoir can potentially deliver high doses of the drugs, which could lead to a life-threatening drug overdose, low blood pressure, slow heart rate, loss of consciousness, and death.

What is the MedStream Infusion Pump?

Codman & Shurtleff, Inc. manufacture the MedStream Programmable Infusion Pump. Once it is implanted in a patient’s body, it delivers regular doses of the following drugs:

  • Morphine: This powerful narcotic painkiller is used to treat moderate to severe pain.
  • Baclofen: This muscle-relaxing, anti-spastic drug treats symptoms of multiple sclerosis, including stiffness, pain, and spasms.

Class 1 Recall Issued for MedStream Infusion Pump

The problem is that air in the pump reservoir could cause the infusion pump to deliver a higher dose of the drug than anticipated, which could potentially cause a drug overdose. The FDA announced the Class 1 recall on October 23, 2013, two months after Codman & Shurtleff warned their customers with an “Urgent Medical Device Notification.”

Products Included in MedStream Infusion Pump Recall

The MedStream Infusion Pumps included in the recall were sold between January 2010 and July 2013. They were manufactured from March 2009 until September 2012.
