Flo-Gard 6301

The Flo-Gard 6301 Dual Channel Volumetric Infusion Pump is an electromechanical pump used for the intravenous infusion of fluids at user-selected rates. The pump contains two linear peristaltic pump heads, allowing it to simultaneously infuse two different solutions.

Description

The Flo­-Gard® 6301 Dual Channel Volumetric Infusion Pump from Baxter can deliver a wide variety of fluids over a broad range of infusion rates. Two separate pump channels allow it to do the work of two conventional pumps, resulting in space savings, and the configurable settings allow the device to be custom tailored to best suit the hospital's needs.

Specifications
Pump Type:   Dual Channel Linear Peristaltic Volumetric Infusion Pump

Flow Rate Range (Primary program): 

1.0-­99.9 mL/hr in 0.1 mL increments or 1-­1999 mL/hr in 1 mL increments. Upper limit can be reduced by authorized service personnel.

Flow Rate Range (Secondary program): 

1.0­-99.9 mL/hr in 0.1 mL increments or 1-­999 mL/hr in 1mL increments, subject to the upper limit that also applies to the primary program.

 

KVO Rate:  5 mL/hr or programmed rate, whichever is less.
Nurse Call:  Available through the COMMUNICATIONS PORT

VTBI Range:

 1.0­-99.9 mL in 0.1 mL increments or 1­-9999 mL in 1 mL increments for both primary and secondary. Upper limit can be reduced by authorized service personnel.

Air-­in-­Line Detection: 

Factory set to NORM, which causes the device to alarm on air bubbles approximately 75 μL or larger. The MIN setting causes the device to alarm on air bubbles approximately 50 μL or larger.

Features

Easy to Use:

  • Computer control capability allows remote control or monitoring of the device via a standard RS-­232C interface.
  • Infuses a wide variety of fluids, including blood and fat emulsions.
  • Suitable for use in epidural administration.
  • Uses only standard Baxter® solution administration sets.
  • Easily replaceable fuse, battery, and power cord.
  • Access to test points and internal program simplifies servicing and software upgrades.

Pump Safety:

  • Automatic self-­test routine checks for proper function before use.
  • Safety clamp automatically occludes the tubing when the pump door is opened.
  • Occlusion sensors detect both upstream and downstream restrictions. Sensitivity of the downstream occlusion sensor is selectable through the device's configuration.
  • Flow check display shows resistance to flow.
  • Ultrasonic air­-in-­line detectors. Sensitivity of the air detectors is selectable through the device's configuration.
  • Five-­hour memory retains infusion data after power-­off.

Configurable Settings:

  • Device can be configured to display a hospital area designator, such as “ONCOLOGY” or “CARDIAC ICU,” upon power-­up.
  • Each pump channel features a Programmed Delivery Profile that enables programming of up to 10 sequential infusion programs for situations where ramping of medications are indicated.
  • Each pump channel features an independent secondary medication program. The channel automatically switches over to the primary program upon completion.
