    This was an ongoing issue for us as well.  No fix to date.

    Hello friends,

    Just writing a quick discussion point to see if anyone using Alaris IV pumps has encountered issues with excessive air in line while running bicarbonate fluids. We just started using them a few weeks ago and have already had multiple problems. It’s possible our air settings are too small, but I wanted to see if there are fixes or if these issues are universal.

    Thanks!
