HPS Pharmacies wish to advise that Baxter is anticipating a supply issue for Elastomeric devices. Baxter has been monitoring this global issue and taking action to minimise supply interruptions of the following device:

Elastomeric Device LV-10 

Nominal Flow Rate 10mL/hour, 24 hour  

To further minimise customer impact, Baxter has imposed the following restrictions on the supply of compounded and non-compounded LV-10 devices:

  • Total restriction of supply of non-compounded LV-10 devices
  • Maximum order quantity of 10 pre-filled saline LV-10 devices
  • Limited supply of compounded LV-10 devices greater than 7 days (with consultation).

These restrictions only affect the LV-10 device. The LV-5 device (5mL/hour) may be considered as an alternative.

Retain this notice in a prominent position, including in other related business units for one month. Report any problems identified with medicines, vaccines or medical devices to the TGA.

Should you require further information regarding this matter, please contact Baxter on 1800 229 837 or your pharmacist at HPS Pharmacies.
