The Health Products Regulatory Authority (HRPA) has published a Safety Notice to raise awareness of a potential issue affecting the battery cap of all Medtronic MiniMed 600 and 700 series insulin pumps. The metal contact points of the battery cap may become loose or fall off, resulting in an incomplete battery connection and no power supply to the pump. This may cause a disruption to insulin delivery and potentially serious injury. More information available on the HRPA website here.
