Medtronic is recalling all quickset insulin infusion sets that start with LOT #8!!!A quick peek inside our supply closet reveals 13 of our 14 boxes ARE in fact lot 8!!! Medtronic states "We recently identified that approximately 2% of "Lot 8" Quick-set infusion sets used with MiniMed Paradigm insulin pumps may not work properly. Some of these infusion sets do not allow the insulin pump to vent. This can potentially cause too much or too little insulin to be delivered and may lead to serious injury or death."
YIKES. Wholy Moly! CRAZY! THIS IS WHY WE NEED A CURE! Can you say unexplained highs are now explained? Maybe, maybe not. Regardless of what the reason is for Maddison's wonky numbers....I wonder if that means I'll have to change all the recent changes I've made to Maddison's insulin dosing as we begin to use new un-recalled sets again? Medtronic also states they will ship one replacement box every 3 weeks due to the shortage of Quicksets they are now experiencing as a result of the recall. I'm surely not sending back ALL my boxes at once then!
