Editor's Note

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on March 6 identified the recall by Becton Dickinson (BD)/CareFusion 303 of its Alaris System Infusion Pumps and Modules as Class I, the most serious.

The recall was initiated because of multiple system errors, software errors, and use-related errors. The errors can lead to delay in infusion, interruption of infusion, under-infusion, and over-infusion.
