Curlin Painsmart IOD

The Curlin Infusion pump, an easy-to-use, ambulatory or pole mounted infusion device designed to meet the needs of the hospital or alternate site patient. It operates accurately in any position, has a low rate resolution of 2 microliters, and its small, compact, lightweight design allows mobility for ambulatory patients. The Curlin Infusion pump can be carried in any of the four convenient carryall soft-packs, pole mounted,placed into the locked “safety shells,” or set on a suitable surface for use.

Features

Special Features of the PainSmart™ IOD Pump

  • Small, accurate, ambulatory, volumetric infusion pump that provides reliable and safe delivery of infusion therapies.
  • The Info-On-Demand feature of the Curlin Infusion PainSmart™ IOD pump safely provides additional information to the user when the pump is in the “RUN” mode.
  • Customized Maximum Basal Rate Limit.
  • Customized Maximum Bolus and Dose Limits.
  • Customized Lock Level setting.
  • Large screen with Tallman Lettering.
  • Larger font, single information display.
  • Patient side (downstream) “Line Pressure” displayed.
  • medLIMITS™ features.
  • PCA dose and medLIMITS™ schedules that can be maintained on Repeat.
  • Pump will not permit the user to enter any programming value that is outside of its predetermined default range, or further restricted through medLIMITS™.
  • Ability, at the institution level, to configure the pump for specific Administration Route or Units of Measure:
    ° Units (Factory, ml, mg, mcg, ml fixed, mg fixed or mcg fixed);
    ° Route (Intravenous, Epidural, Subcutaneous, Intravenous fixed, Epidural fixed or Subcutaneous fixed).
  • Patient and therapy specific programming features via the Curlin Infusion BIOMED SETUP and Options Menus (when not limited by the institution).
  • Selection by user from three units of delivery, milliliters, milligrams, and micrograms (when not limited by the institution).
  • Choice of five or nine digits Clinician Access Code.
  • Maintenance Due Date that is automatically set, the first time, after 12 hours of use.
  • Shift Totals that can be greater than 24 hours.
  • Hourly Totals.
  • Automatic scrolling of the programmed prescription with “quick-repeat” function.
  • Cost effective, safe and easy-to-load disposable Curlin Infusion administration sets featuring a unique, spring-activated, self-clamping, set-based “Integral Flow-Stop” device that automatically clamps the tubing when the door of the pump is opened and prevents inadvertent fluid flow.
  • User-friendly, easy-to-teach programming that shortens staff inservice time and patient teaching time.
  • “Helpful” help screens and display messages.
  • Three tamper-resistant lock settings to assist in maintaining patient compliance and safety.
  • Retention of programmed infusion settings until cleared by the clinician, thus eliminating the need to reprogram before each use.
  • Mandatory requirement of two independent key press actions before a running pump can be turned off, thus minimizing the accidental interruption of a therapy in progress.
  • Powered by two readily available, cost-effective “C” size alkaline batteries.
  • Attractive yet robust design that is impact resistant and water resistant.
  • Audio alarms that can be adjusted from 1 (very quiet) to 9 (loudest) to meet specific patient and clinical setting needs but that cannot be totally disabled.
  • Four sizes of convenient carry packs to assist the ambulatory patient in maintaining independence of lifestyle.
  • Retained memory features that allow the pump to easily resume a therapy exactly from where it left off when it is interrupted before completion or to repeat a therapy using the same programmed prescription.
  • Compact, lockable safety shells that provide additional security when needed and that are designed to be free standing, pole mounted, or placed in the convenient, soft, carry case.
  • Backlit illumination for display screen. Backlight remains on continuously if AC Adapter is in use.
  • Integral Up as well as Down Occlusion alarms to notify user if an occlusion is present on either side of the pumping chamber.
  • Integral High Upstream pressure alarm to notify user of excessive upstream pressure.
  • Integral Air-In-Line alarm to notify user of presence of air in the tubing.
  • Adjustable Down Occlusion settings of “High” and “Low” to customize the pump’s down pressure requirements.
