Symbios Medical Products recalls 2 years' worth of its GoPump systems and GOBlock kits after receiving 5 complaints about the pumps, 2 of which involved serious consequences. Symbios Medical Products last week recalled all of its GoPump rapid recovery systems and GOBlock kits manufactured with flow control components assembled prior to July 2012, according to the FDA. These products were found to potentially cause excessively high flow rates, the agency reported. Due to the rapid influx of medication, particularly in patients with low body mass or advanced age, patient toxicity and serious injury including seizure, dysrhythmia and death can result, the FDA noted.
