Valid calibration of infusion pumps

Infusion pumps deliver medications at programmed rates or intervals. However, incorrect doses can occur if fluids are delivered at inaccurate flow rates, particularly drugs with narrow therapeutic margins, short half-life, high concentration, or the very low flow rates typical for newborn children. Therefore, accurate and prec...

Calibration best practice in Standards

Infusion pumps, also known as syringe pumps, are used to automatically deliver critical fluids to patients at precisely programmed rates or intervals. When these devices are used to administer high-risk medications, inaccuracies in delivered flow rates can have significant safety implications; especially for drugs with narrow ...
