KD Scientific has launched the KDS EZflow 2020, a durable syringe pump that is said to be useful in high-rate transfusions.
It is designed to enhance operation while maintaining simplicity.
The EZflow 2020 system has an automated calculation of delivery based on four, eight, 12, 16 and 20 minutes, with an infusion accuracy of +/- 20 seconds.
A range of plastic syringes can be used with the unit including 20/30ml, 50/60ml and 100ml.
The pump is said to be ergonomic, with an easy-to-use, horizontal design that protects the syringe barrel and allows single-handed loading.
The durable waterproof touch-control panel provides for efficient and reliable operations.
Flow rates range from 60ml/hr to 1,500ml/hr depending on the syringe size and pump settings.
There are four visual and audible alarms, occlusion detection, low battery, near end of dispense and complete.
There are two models available for different power requirements, 115VAC (EZflow 2020) or 220VAC (EZflow 2021).
Both units have a rechargeable battery, which provides continuous operation of 15 syringes (50ml) set at 12 minutes.
