System error BD Alaris™ PC Unit What does SYSTEM ERROR mean?  What should I do?  The BD Alaris ™ PC Unit (PCU) software runs self-checking programs prior to and during operation. A SYSTEM ERROR message means that the BD Alaris™ System has identified an error in either the hardware or the software of the PCU. Operation will continue on all channels; current infusions are not affected but the module cannot accept any new changes to the rate, dose or volume to be infused (VTBI).  Obtain a new PCU. Do not power down until a new PCU is available. Operation will continue on all channels during this time. Programmed settings on the module are not restorable, any current rate, dose and VTBI settings should be noted and recorded prior to powering down the PCU. Tag the affected PCU, describe the error and return it to your facility’s clinical engineering or biomed department.  B  A  A.
