 MedWatch - The FDA Safety Information and Adverse Event Reporting Program

 FDA and Medtronic notified healthcare professionals of a Class I recall of
all Medtronic Model 8870 software application cards, Version AAA 02, used in
conjunction with the Model 8840 N'Vision Clinician Programmer. This software
application card is used to control the administration of medication of
Synchromed and Synchromed EL implantable infusion pumps. Several pump
infusion modes require the entry of a time duration or interval. Medtronic
has received reports of the entry of hours into the minutes field, which has
resulted in deaths and injuries due to drug overdose.
