Detectors, Fluid Level
Definition : Detectors designed to discover abnormally low or high levels of fluid in medical device reservoirs. These detectors usually detect fluid level using float switches, or photoelectric, capacitive, or ultrasonic (either contact or non-contact) sensors. Fluid level detectors are mainly used in extracorporeal perfusion machines used to deliver blood and/or intravenous solutions into the vascular system (e.g., infusion pumps) and/or to provide temporary either total or partial external circulation for therapeutic or other purposes, such as heart-lung bypass, hemodialysis, and apheresis units. They may be used also to detect liquid levels in other medical devices.
