Abbott Lifecare 5000

The Abbott Lifecare 5000 Plum Infusion System is a multilane, general purpose, volumetric infusion system designed to meet the need for hospital-wide device standardization. By means of internal switch-settings, a qualified bio-technician can configure the LifeCare 5000 System to best suit the clinical needs and census changes of the hospital. The Unit is designed for accurate, non-pulsatile administration of single fluid regimens, dual-channel regimens, piggybacks, and multidose regimens over a wide range of delivery rates and fluid viscosities. It can administer a variety of medical fluids, from 5% Dextrose Injection, USP, to enteral feeding products and blood. Primary and secondary doses of compatible drugs can be delivered concurrently.

Description

The Abbott Lifecare 5000 Plum Infusion System is a multilane, general purpose, volumetric infusion system designed to meet the need for hospital­wide device standardization. By means of internal switch­settings, a qualified bio­technician can configure the LifeCare 5000 System to best suit the clinical needs and census changes of the hospital. The Unit is designed for accurate, non­pulsatile administration of single fluid regimens, dual­channel regimens, piggybacks, and multidose regimens over a wide range of delivery rates and fluid viscosities. It can administer a variety of medical fluids, from 5% Dextrose Injection, USP, to enteral feeding products and blood. Primary and secondary doses of compatible drugs can be delivered concurrently.

One sealed, lead­acid rechargeable 8 V battery, internal to device. Accessible for ease of field replacement, with color­coded leads and polarized connector. Battery life (new batteries, full charge, at 20 C) approximately 500 mL total volume delivered or six hours of operation, whichever occurs first.

Features
  • DELIVERY RATE RANGE:
    - Micro Mode: 0.1 to 99.0 mL/hr (in 0.1 mL increments). The total of the primary rate plus the secondary rate cannot exceed 99.9 mL/hr in Micro Mode. Note: while using the concurrent delivery feature in the Micro Mode, neither the primary rate nor the secondary rate can be less than 0.5 mL/hr.
    - Macro Mode: 1 to 999 mL/hr (in 1 mL increments. The total of the primary rate plus the secondary rate cannot exceed 700 mL) in 1mL/hr in Macro Mode.
  • DOSE LIMIT RANGE:
    - Micro Mode: 0.1 to 999 mL (in 0.1 mL increments).
    - Macro Mode: 1 to 9999 mL (in 1 mL increments).
  • Operating Back Pressure:
    02 to 10 psig. The maximum pressure is user-selectable from 1 to 10 psig, via the front panel touchswitches.
  • Secondary Doses:
    For dual-channel delivery, a single dose of a secondary fluid may be administered. For multidose delivery, 1 to 24 doses of a secondary fluid may be administered at intervals from 15 minutes to 24 hours.
  • OCCLUSION ALARM:
    Distal: The distal occlusion alarm sounds within two pumping cycles after the distal set tubing or set outlet fitting becomes occluded. Proximal: The proximal occlusion alarm sounds within five pumping cycles if the tubing proximal to the cassette becomes occluded.
  • Air-in-Alarm:
    The stopped air in distal line alarm will sound if a bubble 100 uL or larger passes the distal air-in-line sensors. Alarm may actually sound at detection of a bubble as small as 50 uL)
  • Proximal:
    The stopped air in proximal line alarm will sound if approximately 1200 uL or more passes trough the proximal air-in-line sensors.
