Priming

  • Manual or by using the purge/prime function of the pump.

Bolus

  • 1500 mL/h, adjustable from 50 mL/h to 1500 mL/h by 50 mL/h increments.
  • Direct or programmable.

KVO

  • Automatic Keep Vein Open rate of 1 mL/h (adjustable from 1 to 20 mL/h) when volume limit is reached.

Pause

  • Programmable from 1 minute to 24 hours, increments 1 minute.

Data logo event

  • Up to 1500 data log events in real time.

Graphical history

  • flow rates, pressure.

Night mode

  • The night mode decreases the brightness of the screen and the green lights. The key beep can eventually be turned off.
  • The night mode can be programmed manually or automatically in a variable time range.

Profiles

Basic profile:

  • Infusion without any display of the drug names. 19 Custom profiles configurable with Agilia Vigilant Drug’Lib:Drug library to be created with Agilia Vigilant Drug’Lib.

Volumat lines administration sets

Free-flow protection

  • All sets integrate the SafeClip* that automatically clamps the line to avoid any risk of free-flow when the door is opened and when the set is disengaged.
  • Auto-test function: The patented** OCS (Occlusivity Check System) checks the correct working order of the pump in association with its tubing set,thus preventing any risk of free-flow.

* French Patent FR2908176 / ** European Patent EP1031358

Pumping segment

  • The silicone pumping segment allows a tight flow rate accuracy as well as long term performances.

Material

  • All Volumat Lines infusion sets are DEHP-free & Latex-free.
  • PVC-free and opaque materials are available.

Needle-free access

  • Some sets integrate a needle-free Y injection site to protect the medical staff against the risk of needle-stick injuries.

Pressure management

Pressure modes

  • 2 modes available: variable or 3 pre-set levels - Range from 50 to 750 mmHg.

  • (25 mmHg increment from 50 to 250 mmHg / 50 mmHg increment from 250 to 750 mmHg).

DPS

  • The Dynamic Pressure System - DPS - warns of pressure variations.
  • A risk of obstruction or a possible leak in the infusion line can thus be anticipated.

Pressure monitoring

  • Graphic representation of the pressure in the infusion line and of the pressure limit thanks to the pictogram.

Anti-bolus system

  • Reduces significantly bolus after occlusion release (0,35 mL max.).

Alarms / Pre-alarms / Security

Pump status

  • GREEN for infusion in progress, ORANGE for Low and Medium priority, RED for High priority - Visibility at 4 meters minimum.
  • All alarms are expressed by means of light indicators, written words, pictograms and sound beeps.

Set installation control

  • Door’s closing, set positioning, SafeClip control, OCS test.

Infusion control

  • End of infusion, imminent end of infusion, downstream occlusion, upstream occlusion, line disconnection, air in line, under flow rate, over flow rate, empty container, unconfirmed setting, end of pause, unauthorised flow rate (hard or soft), keypad manual locking or keypad autolock, autorestart if false occlusion detected, start infusion at pause end.

Device control

  • Motor rotation check, power source indication, mains power disconnection, low battery, discharged battery, technical fault, watchdog check, communication connection failure, auto-lock/lock code (on Keypad).

Maintenance

  • Preventive maintenance warning.

 

Disposables

Benefits

DEHP-free

  • All Volumat Lines are free from phthalates (DEHP) in order to limit patient exposure to the components of the plastic materials. There is no risk of DEHP migration into the vascular system of the patient during the IV Treatment.

Automatic flow stop

  • The SafeClip on the Volumat Lines automatically clamps the line to avoid any risk of free-flow when the door is opened and when the set is removed. The risk of an unclosed roller clamp is eliminated.

OCS for complete security

  • The occlusivity check system (OCS) is the auto-test that checks the correct working order of the pump in association with the silicone segment of the administration set to prevent free-flow. The efficiency of this combination is tested whenever the set is installed by performing the OCS test.

Guaranteed set performance

  • All Volumat Lines have a silicone pumping segment with a very precise diameter and high elasticity. The special design guarantees excellent flow rate accuracy and infusion reliability. Recalibration of the pump is not necessary.

Wide flow rate range

  • The design of the silicone segment enables constant flow rates in the range from 0.1 up to 1500 ml/h, whereas non-dedicated systems with PVC lines are limited to a maximum rate of 600 to 1000 ml/h.

Intelligent pressure management

  • Special sensors in the pump measure the pressure on two points of the silicone segment. Both upstream- and downstream occlusions occurring in the line are detected enabling safe pressure management.

Ease of use

  • The set connectors have the same blue and green colour and shape as the dedicated slots in the pump for an intuitive and fast installation of the set. This system makes it impossible to insert the set the wrong way round. Thanks to the high reliability of the pumps and the sets, a drop sensor is no longer necessary.
