Baxter Meridian Hemodialysis

Baxter International announced that due to tubing-related problems, one person died and another person was seriously injured after their blood was damaged during treatment with its Meridian Hemodialysis device. The device is used to treat patients with kidney problems.

Baxter sent an urgent recall letter to customers in September with instructions on how to deal with the issue, also said federal regulators have classified the letter as a Class 1 recall the most serious kind. The problem relates to how tubing sets are routed through clips mounted on the front of the Meridian devices. If routed improperly, they can bend or get knotted up, which can result in broken blood cells and cause serious injury or death.

The U.S. FDA’s recall classification doesn't require the return of Meridian instruments in the market, Baxter said. Roughly 2,100 of the instruments are in use, including 1,700 in the United States.The last Meridian instrument was made in 2002.
