Why the product is recalled

The pump battery may deplete faster than expected in certain circumstances. Only patients using the pump displaying Dexcom G5 Continuous Glucose Monitor (CGM) values are affected by this issue.

If a Transmitter ID is entered incorrectly into the pump, the pump will be unable to connect to the transmitter and will continue to search for that transmitter until the battery charge is depleted or a correct Transmitter ID is entered.

What the hazards are to consumers

Depletion of the pump battery may lead to interruption of insulin delivery, this could result in the user developing dangerously high blood glucose levels (hyperglycaemia), which can lead to serious health complications.

What consumers should do

This issue will be rectified via a software update, scheduled for release in August 2020. AMSL Diabetes Customer Care will be individually contacting patients to arrange to complete the update of each insulin pump.

Consumers are requested to adhere to the following precautions until this software update is made available:
1. Please take precautions when entering the Transmitter ID into the t:slim X2 insulin pump to ensure that the Transmitter ID is correct before starting a Sensor Session.
2. Periodically check the battery level indicator of the pump;
3. Charge the pump for a short period of time every day (10 to 15 minutes);
4. Avoid frequent full battery discharges; and
5. Ensure that the “Bluetooth Settings” in the “Pump Settings” menu is turned off.
