Flo-Gard 6300

The Flo Gard 6300 Dual Channel Volumetric Infusion Pump is an electromechanical device used for the intravenous infusion of liquids at user-selected rates. The device contains two peristaltic pump heads, allowing it to simultaneously infuse two different solutions. Each pump head is independently programmable and permits infusion of primary and secondary medication programs. The secondary program automatically switches over to the primary program when secondary infusion is complete(automatic piggybacking).


The Baxter Flo-­Gard® 6300 Dual Channel Volumetric Infusion Pump 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.

Pump Type:   Dual Channel Linear Peristaltic Volumetric Infusion Pump 
Dimensions:   13 W x 11.4 H x 8.3 D in. 
Weight:   18 lbs 
AC Power Requirements:   110/120 V, 60 Hz. 
Power Cord:  9 ft, Hospital Grade
Fuse:  0.75 A, 250 V, SB, 6.35 mm x 31.8 mm
Leakage Current:  Less than 50 microamps (using UL-­544 specified test methods)
Battery:  12 V, 3.2 A, sealed lead acid

Battery Life: 

Approximately 6 hours with one pump running at 1-­1400 mL/hr. Approximately 4 hours with both pumps running at 1­-1400 mL/hr.

Battery Recharge:  8 hours for compete recharge

Flow Rate Range (Primary program): 

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

Flow Rate Range (Secondary program):  1 - ­999 mL/hr in 1 mL increments 
KVO Rate:  5 mL/hr or programmed rate, whichever is less. 
Nurse Call:   Standard feature that can be activated by authorized service personnel. 

VTBI Range: 

1­ - 9999 mL for both primary and secondary on each channel. Upper limit can be set 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.

Occlusion Detection: 

The occlusion level setting is displayed momentarily after the self-
test when the device is first powered on. The possible settings are:

  • LEVEL 1 ­ approximately 7 psi (362 mm Hg)
  • LEVEL 2 ­ approximately 12 psi (620 mm Hg)
  • LEVEL 3 ­ approximately 17 psi (879 mm Hg)

Easy to Use:

  • Infuses a wide variety of fluids, including blood.
  • Uses only standard Baxter® solution administration sets.
  • Easy to load, spill-­resistant pump mechanisms.
  • Easily replaceable fuse, battery, and power cord.
  • Each pump channel features an independent secondary medication program. The channel automatically switches over to the primary program upon completion.
  • Volume-­Time programming automatically calculates flow rate.

Pump Safety:

  • Automatic self-­test routine checks for proper function before use.
  • Safety clamp mechanisms prevent accidental free flow.
  • Occlusion sensors detect both upstream and downstream restrictions.
  • Flow check display shows resistance to flow.
  • Ultrasonic air-­in-­line detectors.
  • Five­hour memory retains infusion data after power­off.
  • Locking control panel prevents tampering.
