Hospira Plum A+ with Mednet

Here are some features of Hospira Plum A+ with Mednet.


Dimensions: 8” H x 8” W x 6” D (excluding pole clamp and power cord storage)

Weight: 9.5 lbs (with battery)

Casing: High-impact plastic


Power Requirements: 120 VAC; 50-60 Hz; 35 W

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

Fuses: 0.5 A, 250 VAC

Battery: Sealed lead acid; 6 V; internal; rechargeable

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

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

    • The battery charges whenever the infuser is connected to AC power

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

Nurse Call System: Default: Normally-open (NO)

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

KVO: 1 mL/hr or the last primary delivery rate, whichever is less

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

Accuracy: ± 5%

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)

Ethernet LAN: Shielded Ethernet cable plugged into an RJ-45 connector

Wireless LAN: Device name: Hospira MedNet Wireless 802.11 a/b/g Module

    • Standards: IEEE 802.11 a/b/g
    • Transmit Power: 802.11 b/g – 17.6 dBm; 802.11 a – 19 dBm
