Infusion Sets for Hospitals and Medical Practices
An infusion device or infusion set is designed to conduct fluids from the infusion solution contained in an IV fluid bag to the patient, usually intravenously or subcutaneously. An infusion set consists of a spike or perforator, a drip chamber, an infusion line, a flow regulator and a connector to attach the IV tubing to the needle.
Infusion Sets for Gravity Infusion & Pressure Infusion
With gravity infusion, care must be taken to maintain a sufficient height distance between the patient's arm and the hanging IV fluid bag. For this purpose, the bag is usually attached to an infusion stand and the infusion device is attached by means of an infusion tube or line.
The Infusion Device with Infusion Regulator from Asid Bonz is particularly well-suited for gravity infusion. The infusion regulator allows much more precise control of the infusion rate than a conventional drip controller, and in addition the drip rate can be variably adjusted between 5 ml/h and 250 ml/h. Furthermore, it is equipped with a needle-free injection port.
Some infusion systems are suitable for both gravity and pressure infusions. The Intrafix Air P Infusion Set is particularly popular in this catergory. It has a sharp piercing spike, making it easy to pierce the IV bag. In addition, it has a bacteria-proof vent and is resistant up to a pressure of 2 bar. It is both DEHP-free and latex-free and can be used on most patients needing intravenous therapy without any problems.
Another infusion device in this catergory is the Intrafix® Primeline Comfort from B. Braun. The large 15 µm filter provides high flow rate, protects against larger particles and can be closed with a green Euro-cap. A free-standing, elongated dropper ensures even drop formation. In addition, the tube length of 180 cm enables a comfortable connection between cannula and the IV infusion container.
Avoidance of Air Embolisms / Administration of Light-Sensitive Medication
Infusion devices with a safety float valve are suitable for preventing the occurrence of air embolisms. The Dosifix Infusion Device is particularly popular in this catergory. In addition, it has a 150 ml dosing container and a precision micro-dropper which allow for particularly precise dosing - even below the millilitre range.
The Intrafix SafeSet is suitable for administering light-sensitive medicines. This orange-transparent infusion set protects medication from light in the range between 290 - 520 nm. Another advantage of this sytem compared to opaque infusion systems is that air or air bubbles can be detected at an early stage, which increases patient safety.
