Accu-Chek Spirit Combo insulin infusion pumps warning PDF Print Email

Do you use a the Accu-Check Spirit Combo insulin pump?

The manufacturer, Roche and the MHRA have re-issued a warning with regards to a problem that occurs if the pump's power supply is interrupted, for example, to change the battery. This may reset the default date and time. If this change goes unnoticed, and the user confirms the default settings, there will be a shift in the basal rate time block and this may affect insulin delivery. Patients with impaired vision are at particular risk as they may be less likely to notice the change.


Talk to us or review the advice in the manufacturer’s Field Safety Notice (FSN) or call the Roche Accu-Chek Pump Careline on Freephone 0800 731 2291.

Make sure you have a syringe or insulin pen available as a back-up. If the problem arises contact Roche for a replacement pump.
