Volumed®µVP7000

The volumetric infusion pumps from arcomed´s Chroma Series is an all-in-one infusion pump that meets all your anaesthesia needs. Volumed can be used as a total intravenous anaesthesia pump (TIVA) or target controlled infusion pump (TCI) in the OR. It can follow the patient to the recovery room and be used as a patient controlled analgesia (PCA) pump or be used as a standard infusion pump in the ICU and in general wards – and more.

Volumed high-quality volumetric infusion pump improves patient treatment by increasing safety in procedures and simplifying workflow for nurses. Volumed is user-friendly and intuitive and fulfil the sophisticated needs of hospitals with the same external shape, interface, design and functionality for both syringe and volumetric pumps. Volumetric infusion pumps from arcomed are known for simple construction and user-friendly core features when delivering continuous and very specific amounts of fluids at the rates the patient acquires.

The innate versatility of the Chroma Series volumetric and syringe pumps allows them to be programmed with various custom-tailored configurations and infusion profiles. They can also be used as ICU pumps, neonatology pumps, anaesthesia TCI (target controlled infusion) or TIVA (total intravenous anaesthesia) pumps, PCA pumps – or all-in-one pumps, depending on the needs of the user.

arcomed´s revolutionary all-in-one philosophy simplifies the use of the syringe and volumetric pump by relieving the user of having to make upfront decisions about which application to use. The pump adjusts to the user’s needs, whether it is as a TIVA or TCI pump in the OR, a PCA pump in recovery or as an infusion pump in the ICU and general wards. The versatility of Volumed makes it a real all-in-one pump.

Patient-Controlled Analgesia (PCA), Patient-Controlled Epidural Analgesia (PCEA) and Patient-Controlled Sedation (PCS)

Why not involve the patient while s/he is awake in decisions about bolus drug delivery, based upon his/her pain perception? Consideration of this factor whilst maintaining the highest safety standards has been arcomed´s priority in the development of our PCA/PCEA/PCS pumps.
Thanks to patient-controlled anaesthesia systems (PCA), patients can control how their pain is relieved. Normally, healthcare professionals will prescribe this type of treatment to enable the patient to use arcomed’s devices in order to administer small doses of medication as needed.
Infusion pumps by arcomed are set up to administer the prescribed dose of medication in each case. The patient just presses the button on the device in order to release the dose required, whenever he or she is suffering pain.

The system will keep a bolus history log, so that doctors and nurses can keep track of the medication administered to the patient.

The medication is administered intravenously using infusion solutions by arcomed such as syringes, cannulas, IV sets or oncology sets.

These systems are suitable for both general ward rooms and labour ward rooms, as the infusion pumps can be tailored to your specific needs.

  • Safety features include password and locking mechanism.

Magnetic resonance imaging is a medical test or technique that uses imaging technology and radio frequency waves to obtain images of human anatomy.

The main difference compared to traditional X-ray is that MRI does not use electromagnetic radiation – X-radiation.

During one magnetic resonance imaging session the technicians may obtain hundreds of images – these can be stored digitally for assessment by healthcare professionals.

  • Lid shield avoids artefacts on MRI image.
  • Perfect visibility of pumps at a distance.
  • Various sizes of MRI shield.
  • Includes an arcomed Docking Station for convenient handling of pumps.
  • Maintenance-free.

Based on current user needs regarding radiation protection within the nuclear medicine environment, arcomed has developed an innovative device that minimizes radiation exposure during preparation and administration of radiopharmaceuticals. Ionizing radiation can present a significant health hazard. It causes microscopic damage to living tissue, which can result in skin burns and radiation sickness at high levels of exposure, and statistically elevated risks of cancer at low levels.

The International Committee on Radiation Protection (ICRP) and International Commission on Radiation Units and Measurements (ICRU) have published recommendations and data which are used to calculate the biological effects on the human body and set regulatory and guidance limits. Nowadays many hospitals use automated dose dispensers which avoid the need for manual preparation but not manual administration. The preparation, administration and time spent with the patient after the injection are all exposure risks. The whole-body dose is generally received over the course of the entire procedure, whereas extremity doses are mainly received during steps involving handling of the radiopharmaceutical.

In nuclear medicine, radiopharmaceuticals are usually administered manually in unit doses withdrawn from multi-dose vials using a syringe shield. There are several studies concerning the maximum doses received by operators and also comparative studies about operators’ received dose when administering radiopharmaceuticals manually and using an automated injector. These studies conclude that automatic – as opposed to manual – withdrawal and administration reduce radiation exposure to healthcare professionals, improve the accuracy of administration and help prevent contamination.

arcomed has focused on nuclear medicine because as it is a young specialty, evolving with a strong technological orientation.  broad experience, combined with our receptive attitude to new ideas, has resulted in the creation of ArcoNuc. ArcoNuc is a computer operated solution for the dispensing and injection of radiopharmaceuticals to patients – a fully shielded mobile device to withdraw patient-specific doses of radiopharmaceuticals from a vial and administer them to patients through an infusion device all managed through intuitive software.

The main features of ArcoNuc include:

  • Fully shielded, robust and automatic, to minimize staff exposure to radiopharmaceuticals.
  • Compatible with all standard vials.
  • Suitable for all isotopes including those with very short half-life.
  • Designed for the preparation and administration of individual doses of radiopharmaceuticals.
  • Infusion data can be printed on a label and included in the patient notes.
  • The dose can be diluted.
  • Includes an activity meter to precisely measure the activity of the multi-dose vial.
  • Mobile and lightweight.
  • Quick dose preparation and administration.
  • Especially useful for Targeted Radionuclide Therapy.
  • Delivery rate and volume can be adjusted and controlled.

This method involves the administration of nutrients through a tube directly to the stomach or duodenum. This avoids the need for the patient to ingest food via the mouth and esophagus. Artificial feeding is used in instances when oral feeding is not possible.

Nevertheless, the patient must have a functional digestive tract in order to absorb the nutrients correctly.
There are two types of artificial feeding: enteral feeding and parenteral feeding.

ArcoAir PCA Switch

An air-activated PCA bolus switch for the provision of analgesia in those patients fully conscious but unable to use their hands or upper limbs.

The bolus switch includes an intelligent pressure sensor and disposable tube, with a filter and mouthpiece attached, which is kept close to the patient’s mouth using an articulated arm. To request a bolus, the patient simply has to introduce a continuous amount of air into the mouthpiece.

It is used in connection with our infusion devices, enabling both programmed doses and doses requested by patients as well as supporting a variety of configurations.

 

 

 

Large Touch Screen – the way to touch and act

The TouchScreen combined with the short cuts makes it easy to quickly find the function you need. One touch takes you to your most used function. The navigation is customisable and intuitive and enable workflow efficiency.  The clear design enables an icon based navigation without menu scrolling and searching enhances the workflow safety. The color screen enables the use of color coded drug labeling (ISO 26825 and DIVI)  and reduces the risk of drug error in critical situations.
