Syringe pumps for infusion of vasoactive drugs: mechanical idiosyncrasies and recommended operating procedures.

Abstract

Syringe pumps for vasoactive infusions have the advantages of small size and weight, portability, and low cost of the disposable components. However, limited syringe capacity necessitates the use of high drug concentrations, and the accidental delivery of even a small volume of infusate could seriously alter the patient's hemodynamics. To determine the… (More)
