is a medical device used to administer small amounts of fluid (with or without medication) to a patient via an infusion pump and syringe ranging from 1cc up to a volume of 100cc. It is also found in chemistry or biomedical research. They are found mainly in the care services of Hospital Centers. Easy to use, their quick programming allows caregivers to start an infusion in a few seconds, in a completely secure way and thus allow good medication compliance for patients.
The usefulness of syringe pumps is to administer drugs continuously, with a stable flow rate allowing a stable concentration to be obtained over the duration of administration. This avoids periods when the drug level in the blood is too high or too low. They are widely used for the administration of anticancer drugs, insulin, antibiotics, analgesics and pressor amines in many medical specialties: anesthesia-resuscitation, surgery, infectiology, palliative care, etc.
Vasoactivity is a mechanism or a substance, that allows the modification of the caliber of the vessels (vasoconstriction and vasodilation).
This calculator makes it possible to calculate the flow rate of a Syringe Driver of vasoactive drugs (dobutamine, dopamine) according to the weight of the patient and the dilution used.
