One medfusion pump was received in good physical condition with no appearance of any external damage. The event history log was reviewed and there was a force sensor bridge test error. The pump was started up and the reported issue was able to be replicated. The plunger cable no longer operated as a result of normal wear; the pump was over 8 years old. The plunger cable was replaced to resolve the issue. The force sensor was replaced as a preventative measure. After replacing the force sensor, plunger cable and the plunger board, the pump continued to give the force sensor test alarm. The main board was also replaced.
