    Hi pump users.

    I came across an article online by chance today (April 9th, 2009) and though you should know that Accu-Chek have a possible problem with their Spirit pump.

    Not trying to scare anyone, just keep you informed.

    Hi 999sugarbabe
    Thanks

    Most of the Accu-check spirit pumps users where aware of this recall, before it was public knowldge...

    Some like me, had already had there pumps change proir to the recall due to pump failure... And the others should now have there replacement pumps..

    The total numbers that were effected in this country was a total of 96 pumps in all...

    The pumps never lost any of it's saftey and could still be used to deliver the basal insulin, and if you flip the menu screen this would bring back some of the capibilites of the bolus part of the pump, but you would only be able to carry out basic basal doseing...

    Must admit that Rouche customer services were very good indeed, I had a pump request monday morning and it arrived first thing Tuesday morning not bad in my books...
