Affected Products

Centricity High Acuity Anesthesia

Reason

The stop infusion window is prepopulated with a zero volume in the volume given field for drug infusions when a drug/fluid infusion is recorded manually and rate has not been entered by the user. The user then may inappropriately accept an incorrect value as the delivered volume (volume given) when manually recording a free-flowing drug infusion. This documentation error may lead to confusion during further care and management which may result in overmedication to the patient.
