GOBlock Kits and GoPump Rapid Recovery System kits are being recalled by Symbios Medical Products because of an issue that could compromise patient safety. Versions of the items that have flow controls put together before July of last year could suffer from flow rates that exceed what would be considered safe. This could lead to heightened levels of medications being administered to the patient, and thus he or she would be susceptible to toxicity and the associated threat of seizures or even a fatality. Five incidents have been reported, two of them serious. It has been noted that no fatalities have reportedly occurred thus far. Symbios is getting in touch with all affected parties.
