If your patients’ APO-go Pump displays an error message please refer to the relevant section within your copy of the APO-go Pump handbook for guidance on what to do. If you haven't received this item, you can download it here. You can also contact the APO-go Helpline for further help and advice.
In the unlikely event that an error cannot be rectified, a replacement APO-go Pump will be sent out immediately.
If your APO-go Pump isn't working or is working very slowly, your Pump battery may be low or have run out.
If this is the case, the low battery warning will appear on the screen of your Pump to indicate that the battery should be changed. You should try to do this as soon as possible to avoid interrupting any subsequent infusions.
If the battery is allowed to expire completely, the screen will show the message ‘BATT’ and the Pump will stop working. The battery must be replaced immediately.
The battery can be easily replaced with use of the APO-go Pump battery compartment opener key ring (supplied with the original APO-go Pump within
Using the key ring opener, open the battery compartment and replace the old battery with a new one (a spare Pump battery is supplied free of charge in the original Pump packaging).
If you do not have the battery compartment key ring, and/or cannot open the battery compartment, contact your Parkinson's nurse immediately.
