Reason

Baxter is communicating important safety information regarding the practice of using multiple extension sets with infusion pumps. Increasing the length of IV tubing between the pump and the patient will result in varying increases in outlet pressure and/or decreases in intake pressure, which could lead to unknown and undetectable reductions in forward flow and flow rate accuracy.
