With an efficient infusion pump, staff members have to spend less time to deliver fluids to patients.
FREMONT, CA: Running a medical facility, regardless of the size or type, requires choosing the most dependable medical equipment is. When it comes to infusion pumps, this is no exception. Though medical facilities may have several kinds of staff members and patients, the purpose of infusion pumps is to serve both groups equally. Infusion pumps are well-known in medical applications, and they come in multiple operating principles for pumping several fluids. Read on to know more.
The first uses volumetric measuring principles. This usually requires a significant flow rate and minimum volume for attaining a reasonable accuracy within an acceptable period. This limits the ability to rapidly check syringe pumps at the lowest flow rates and in vital applications. This generates a potentially inaccurate and time-consuming calibration process. The second is to measure the distance that the plunger travels over a pre-decided period and use that to extrapolate a figure. This technique is determined by the instruments' manufacturers with it a high degree of inaccuracy when adding together the manual measuring, the inaccuracy of the ruler, stopwatch, and pump.
Realizing some of the flaws in the techniques above, there is research to test new sensor technology that could benefit the response time and accuracy of infusion pump calibrations. With a mediocre infusion pump, staff members have to invest much more time to offer patients fluids. A low flow Coriolis sensor's features can help the scope to enhance the accuracy and response time of calibration systems leveraged to calibrate syringe pumps. The Coriolis principle is chosen due to its proven accuracy and stability. Furthermore, these instruments can be leveraged in line to test complicated multi infusion systems because of their small internal volume and little pressure drop. The outcome of this study confirmed that the Coriolis sensor techniques could surpass the accuracy and response time of the incumbent measurement principles run in calibration systems.
