More about IV Therapy
IV therapy is used to deliver by infusion, fluids, medication, or nutrients to patients.
There are two main types of administration of infusion, volumetric and syringe/PCA.
These pumps are used when the accuracy of fluid volume to be infused is critical such as in the case of medications used for infusion of drugs for circulatory support.
Volumetric pumps deliver a given volume of fluid per unit time measured in mL/hour.
Volumetric pumps can be single or multi channel. Both types allow for the administration of more than one fluid at a time. Single channel employs a piggyback method while multi-channel uses separate tubing set up for the administration of multiple medications or fluids
Syringe pumps are used to administer small volumes of fluids or medications. (1 mL to 60 mL syringe)
Syringe pumps are an effective way to deliver medication with precision while reducing the chance of human error if the medication were to be administered by a member of the medical staff* (of course human error can occur when inputting data or choosing dose rate over time)
Like volumetric pumps, syringe pumps can be programmed to deliver the medication over a predetermined time
