Hospira Plum A+ 3

The Plum A+®3 infusion system is designed to meet the growing demand for hospital wide device standardization, and serves a wide range of general floor and critical care needs. The infusion system consists of three component infusers, designated line 1, line 2, and line 3. By incorporating three lines into one unit, the Plum A+3 provides three primary lines, three secondary lines, and piggyback fluid delivery capabilities. Compatibility with the LifeCare® 5000 PlumSet® administration sets and accessories makes the Plum A+3 a convenient and cost-effective infusion system.

Casing: High-impact plastic


Power Requirements: 95-132 VAC; 47-62 Hz; 90 W

Power Cord: Hospital-grade AC cord; 10 feet; with transparent plug and retainer

Fuses: 0.5 A, 250 VAC

Battery: Three; sealed lead-acid; rechargeable; 6 V; internal

Battery Operation: A fully charged new battery provides approximately three hours of operation at 125 mL/hr or less, or delivers 250 mL if > 126 mL/hr

Recharge Time: Less than 6 hours (if operating at 125 mL/hr on one line)

Self-Discharge: 50% of charge is retained for a minimum of one month when the infuser is not connected to AC power or is not operating

Delivery Rate Ranges:

Delivery Rate (Lines A and B): 0.1 to 99.9 mL/hr (in 0.1 mL/hr increments); 100 to 999 mL/hr (in 1 mL/hr increments)

Concurrent Delivery: 0.5 mL/hr minimum for each line

PlumSet: 500 mL/hr cumulative (A + B) maximum

VTBI Range: 0.1 to 99.9 mL (in 0.1 mL/hr increments); 100 to 9999 mL (in 1 mL/hr increments)

Alarms and Limits:

Distal Occlusion: The distal occlusion alarm sounds after the distal tubing or set outlet fitting becomes occluded

Proximal Occlusion: The proximal occlusion alarm sounds within two pumping cycles when the tubing proximal to the cassette becomes occluded

Distal Pressure Limit (without alarm): 1 to 15 psi; maximum pressure limit is user-selectable; factory setting is 6 psi

Maximum Infusion Pressure: 20 psi

Air-in-Line Alarm:

    • PlumSet (Distal): Bolus – 0.5 mL of air or larger; Cumulative – 0.5 mL of air out of 5.3 mL of fluid
    • PlumSet (Proximal): Bolus at 0.5 mL, total 1 mL (0.5 mL concurrent)
  • Distal Occlusion
  • Proximal Occlusion
  • Distal air-in-line
  • Proximal air-in-line
  • Low battery
  • Door open while pumping
  • Lockout violation
