Baxter InfusOR Syringe Pump
The Baxter InfusOR pump is a syringe infusion device that will aid in the administration of many intravenous agents given during anesthetic procedures. In conjunction with the Smart Label system, it provides the convenient delivery of narcotics, muscle relaxants, vasoactive and other drugs routinely given during anesthesia. The Smart Label system is a set of drug-specific labels that attach to the front of the InfusOR infusion pump into a specific delivery system for the indicated drug with appropriate rate selections and delivery units. By simply changing the specially coded smart label, the Bard InfusOR pump is automatically changed to a specific delivery system for a particular intravenous agent.
The Baxter Bard InfusOR syringe pump is easy to set up and use. Each Smart Label is clearly marked with drug dilution instructions and the required syringe size. The pump accepts B-D or MonoJect 20 cc and 60 cc plastic disposable syringes which attach to tubing sets for connection to the patient’s primary intravenous line. Drug delivery choices are easily selected and changed using front panel rotary switches. The selections are made directly in drug dosing units and, where appropriate, are related to patient body weight, thus elimination tedious calculations. The total volume of drug delivered is displayed for both patient management and record-keeping needs.
This lightweight battery-operated pump is provided with a versatile mounting bracket that securely fastens the pump and provides good pump accessibility during use. The Bard InfusOR Infusion Pump and Smart Label System combine the flexibility of a general infusion device with the convenience of a drug-specific infusion device to meet many intravenous delivery needs during anesthetic procedures.
Baxter InfusOR Syringe Pump Features
The Baxter InfusOR Syringe Pump is a battery-operated device that holds and empties disposable syringes in a controlled manner. A plastic holder accepts the syringe barrel. The syringe plunger is held and moved by a pusher assembly. The pusher engages a threaded lead-screw which is rotated by a reliable, efficient motor that is controlled and monitored by a microcomputer system. Magnetically coded labels attach to the pump front panel and are read by the microcomputer. The coded label tells the microcomputer the delivery rate selections available when that specific label is used with the pump. Rotary input switches, set by the user, select the drug delivery rate. Calculations are then performed by the microcomputer so the drug is delivered as indicated. A force sensing system responds to the overpressure in the fluid pathway and a position detector determines when the syringe needs refilling. The microcomputer controls the indicated lights and alarms and also displays the volume of drug delivered. The batteries are electronically monitored for low power conditions.
