Lifecare PCA 3
The LifeCare PCA 3 Infusion System is the most advanced PCA device to help address wrong dose and wrong drug errors. The LifeCare PCA 3 uses an integrated approach to patient-controlled analgesia and helps to enhance patient safety and efficiency through bar code technology and advanced software design. Pre-Filled bar-coded drug syringes provide quality and enhanced safety.
|Physical:||Dimensions: Approximately 8 W x 13 H x 6 D in. (excluding pole clamp, power cord)|
|Weight: Approximately 10 lbs. with battery|
|Casing: Highimpact plastic|
|Electrical:||Power Requirements: 105-130 V, 57 - 63 Hz, 50 W|
|Power Cord: Hospitalgrade AC cord. 10 feet with transparent plug and retainer plate|
|Fuses: 0.5 A, 250 V, SloBlo-|
|Battery: One sealed lead acid, rechargeable 8 V battery, internal to the device|
Battery Operation: A fully charged new battery provides four hours of operation and delivers 30 mL of solution. Operation time is measured from initial pumping to the LOW BATTERY alarm.
Recharge: The battery charges whenever the infusion pump is connected to AC power. After a LOW BATTERY alarm, the battery will recharge to 80% of full capacity within 16 hours.
Self-Discharge: A fully charged battery will retain a minimum 20% of the initial charge for six months when the infusion pump is not connected to AC power or is not operating, and is stored at 20° C.

Atmospheric Pressure: 0 - 10,000 feet (0 - 3000 meters) or equivalent atmospheric pressure
Relative Humidity: 10 - 90% non-condensing up to 104° F (40° C); maximum of 15% non-condensing above 104° F (40° C)
|Occlusion Alarm and Limits:||Backpressure Range: 10 to 20 psi|
|Modes:||PCA Only: Approximately 1 mL in 35 seconds|
|Continuous Only: Variable from 0.1 - 20x concentration (mg/hr or mcg/hr)|
|PCA + Continuous: Variable from 0.1 - 20x concentration (mg/hr or mcg/hr)|
|Lockout Interval Range: 5 to 120 minutes in one minute increments|
