AS40A

The Baxter AS40A pump is designed to meet the fluid and drug delivery requirements of today’s changing medical environment.

Description

The Baxter AS40A Infusion Pump is designed to meet the fluid and drug delivery requirements of today's changing clinical environment. It provides for accurate continuous or intermittent infusion via intravenous (IV), intra­-arterial (IA), epidural, or subcutaneous routes of administration.

The AS40A accepts standard disposable syringes from 1 mL to 60mL in size. A numeric keypad simplifies programming and makes the pump easier to use. Safety and effectiveness are reinforced by pre-­programmable bolus operation, titration of a dose without interruption of fluid flow, and easily understood alarm and alert messages.

The AS40A can be custom configured for the healthcare facility. This allows an institution or clinic to select those key features which meet specific requirements.
