Clinical safety note
There are physical and operational differences between the different types of CADD® pumps. Incorrect programming can lead to over-infusion of medication and has the potential to cause serious injury and death. See the TGA Alert misidentification of a CADD® Legacy Plus Pump leading to over-infusion and ISMP safety alert regarding the rapid infusion of high dose fluorouracil.

Only health care professionals who have attained competency as per institutional guidelines in ambulatory infusion pump management and related competencies, e.g. safe administration, handling and waste management of cytotoxics, and central venous access device care, should perform these procedures.
