" Unomedical a/s, the manufacturer of these infusion sets, has identified an increase in reports of the tubing becoming detached at the connect/disconnect location on the products. Patients who are concerned about their device should contact their distributor.
If tubing detachment occurs, insulin delivery is interrupted and the pump alarm will not notify the user, according to the manufacturer. The risk to patients of an interruption in insulin delivery is hyperglycemia (elevated blood sugar levels). Hyperglycemia can result in diabetic ketoacidosis, which is a serious condition, and in extreme cases can lead to death. Symptoms of diabetic ketoacidosis may include nausea, vomiting, shortness of breath and excess thirst/urination."
More info can be found at this link to find out which sets are affected.
UPDATE: In today's post I received a letter from Animas, which shows that I have one of the recalled infusion sets (Contact Detach) that may have this problem. I actually just started back on my pump tonight, despite what hospital endo had told me (see my recent blog at this link). So far, from examining the infusion set I just placed into my abdomen - it looks alright. Let's hope the rest work out alright, since I only have one box of infusion sets to work with until I have enough monies for purchasing more (the joys of having to pay out of pocket ... really, it's not that bad, but means you cannot stock pile up like some folks do that have insurance that allows them to do this).
Now using a nifty CGMS along with an insulin pump!!!
