Alarms, Gravity Infusion
Definition : Alarms designed to activate a visual or more frequently audible (i.e., sound) signal when a fluid container used for gravity infusions is nearly empty. These alarms typically consist of a portable battery-operated electronic unit with an attached arm that senses the weight of the fluid bag, operating visual (e.g., LED ) and/or sound alarms when pre-established minimum weights (e.g., 150 g) are reached. The units typically include a clamp for attachment to any vertical intravenous hanger. Gravity infusion alarms can also be used to indicate the completion of bolus infusions and to help in the prevention of air introduction into the infusion line.
