Syringe mount pumps started out as an economical way to administer the medication without the expense of bags and tubings. It regulates the rate at which the medication infuses. More and more frequently the rate syringe medications are infused is becoming less of an issue. They are still sometimes necessary in certain types of medication administration but less frequently used.


FREEDOM60

The Freedom60® Syringe Infusion System is portable and easy to use requiring no batteries or electric. There are only two operating knobs and special precision tubing sets are used to control the flow rate. The Freedom60 operates at a constant safe pressure of 13.5psi. The constant pressure developed in the Freedom60 automatically decreases the flow rate if there is an increase in resistance during the delivery. The system will find equilibrium between the increasing resistance and flow rate. This new “Dynamic Equilibrium” technology results in a fast and safe infusion with minimal patient complications. It provides constant flow which tends to inhibit clots, and holds full pressure after an infusion is complete to prevent blood or drug backflow. The Freedom60 also eliminates concerns of a bolus, overflow, overdose or runaway infusion. For SCIg, the advantage of dynamic equilibrium is the system’s ability to decrease the flow for any pressure increases caused by tissue saturation, improper needle placement (e.g., over a muscle, in scar tissue, needle not deep enough, needles too close together) etc... Indications for Use: The Freedom60 Syringe Infusion System is indicated for intravenous, intra-arterial, enteral, subcutaneous and epidural infusion of medications or fluids requiring continuous delivery at controlled infusion rates.The Freedom60 is also intended to provide continuous infusion of a local anesthetic directly into the intraoperative site for postoperative pain management. Contraindications: The Freedom60 is not intended for the delivery of whole blood, critical or life sustaining medications, or for the infusion of insulin.


MCGAW 360 INFUSER/PREFUSER BASIC

The B Braun McGaw Becton Dickinson 360 Infuser is a microprocessor controlled, portable syringe pump designed to deliver intermittent infusions. The syringe sizes used are 3cc to 10cc, and delivery times range from 10 to 60 minutes. When the time has been set and the syringe is in place, the pump automatically calculates the proper speed and occlusion pressure. This unit is battery powered, and requires 4 C-size alkaline batteries.
