Infusion Pumps, Analgesic

Definition : Infusion pumps designed to deliver liquid analgesics through intravenous (IV), subcutaneous, or epidural routes at pre-established accurate flow rates. These pumps typically include electronic (e.g., syringe-driven, peristaltic, or cassette), or nonelectronic elastomeric mechanisms. Analgesic pumps are designed with specific safeguards that restrict the amount of drug that can be requested and/or delivered over a specific period of time (e.g., 1 mg of analgesic every 6 hours). Electronic pumps are usually capable of recording cumulative data regarding number of doses delivered, date/time of each dose delivered, number of requests received, and total volume of drug delivered. They are mainly used to give pain relief to postoperative, obstetric, terminally ill, and trauma suffering patients. Pumps that allow for self-administration of analgesics (i.e., patient-controlled), within pre-established limits, are also available. These self-administration pumps may be ambulatory or implantable.
