What is Medtronic MiniMed 600 Series Insulin Pump?

Medtronic’s MiniMed 600 Series Insulin Pump Systems provide automated insulin delivery for better management of Type 1 diabetes. The technology mimics the function of a normal pancreas by supplying insulin as needed and avoiding dangerous fluctuations in the patient’s insulin levels.
 

What is Happening with Medtronic MiniMed 600 Series Insulin Pump?

Medtronic announced a recall of its MiniMed 600 Series Insulin Pumps due to the presence of a defective retainer ring.  The damaged retainer ring cannot securely hold the insulin cartridge in place.  This may result in the pump delivering a dose of insulin that is different than the dose prescribed to the patient.  An incorrect insulin dosage can lead to hypoglycemia or hyperglycemia.  Severe hyperglycemia can cause a loss of consciousness, seizure, or death.  Medtronic has received 2,175 reports of injuries and one reported death associated with this defect.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has labeled this action a Class I recall, which is the most serious type of recall issued by the FDA.  The FDA warns that using MiniMed 600 Series Insulin Pumps can result in serious injuries or death.
