Benefits Of The Medfusion 2010 Syringe Pump

January 31, 2016 | Author: | Posted in Health and Fitness

The Medfusion 2010 syringe pump is a syringe driver used in the clinical setting to deliver minute volumes of injected fluids into patients. It has fifteen modes of delivery, divided into four basic categories. These are body weight per unit time, body mass per unit time, volume of drug per unit time and dose volume over total delivery time. The device can store up to 64 pre-programmed settings.

One clinical area in which infusion pumps are desirable is in patient-controlled analgesia (PCA). This allows a patient to control their own pain relief. It is more efficient for the patient and leaves nursing time free for tasks other than administering analgesia. Because the parameters are programmed into the device, it is unlikely to deliver an overdose.

Indications for the use of intravenous PCA are burns, post-surgical pain management, trauma and sickle cell crisis. Among the advantages of PCA are empowering patients to have an element of control over their pain. This eliminates anxiety, a major contributor to pain. It is effective immediately and the patient does not have to wait for a member of medical staff to become available.

PCA is good for incident pain, for example, during physiotherapy or dressing changes. The treatment regimen can be tailored to the needs of the individual patient. It improves the quality of care and the patient’s perception of the hospital admission experience.

This method of administering pain relief is not suitable for all patients. Those with limited dexterity, confusion or learning disabilities may not be able to manage the device. Children under the age of five should always have nurse-controlled analgesia. It is not useful for critically ill patients, who need close monitoring.

The Medfusion 2010 syringe pump has revolutionized the area of pain management because it allows for patient-controlled analgesia. The advantages lead to reduced hospital stays and better economy. The patient is more comfortable and recovers faster.
