The device may have an alarm in case the flow is restricted because of an occlusion of the line which will result in an alarm that will go off when a preset pressure limit is determined.
Most electronic infusion devices are equipped to stop the flow of the infused liquid if an accidental free-flow occurs.2. An automated system of introducing a fluid other than blood into a vein.
The device may have programmable settings that control the amount of fluid to be infused, rate, low-volume notification level, and a keep-vein-open rate.
Some electronic infusion devices have titration modes that allow a change in the delivery rate without interrupting fluid flow. They also allow delivery in milliliters per hour.
The term titration is the process, operation, or method of determining the concentration of a substance in a solution to which the addition of a reagent having a known concentration is made in carefully measured amounts until a reaction of definite and known proportion is completed, as shown by a color change or by electrical measurement, and then calculating the unknown concentration.
