Spectrum IQ Infusion System with Dose IQ Safety Software

Reason

Baxter has received customer reports of watchdog system errors which may occur following frequent connection and disconnection from the facility’s wireless network. This leads to elevated stress on the pump’s memory and processing functions, which causes instability and triggers the system error. The alarm causes the pumps to enter a fail-safe mode which stops all pump processes including delivery of fluid to the patient.
