Description

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.

Specifications
  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.

Environment:  Operating: 41° to 104° F (5° to 40° C) 10% to 90% relative humidity
  Transporting and Storage: -­4° to 140° F (-­20° to 60° C) 10% to 90% relative humidity
 

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
