Issue

Medtronic recently identified that if the Synchromed II Pump switches into telemetry mode due to electromagnetic interference (EMI) from an MRI scan, while the pump is sounding an alarm, the pump will not resume drug delivery after leaving the MRI magnetic field. In this case, drug delivery will only resume after performing a post MRI pump interrogation with the clinician programmer which will end telemetry mode.
