SETTING UP THE PUMP

1. Install 2 new “C” size alkaline batteries (Duracell ProCell)

or connect Battery Pack, or AC adapter to port at bottom of pump.

2. Prepare IV bag and attach a new administration set.

3. Eliminate all air from the bag and the administration set (see PRIMING THE SET).

4. Install set and close pump door.

5. Attach set to venous access device using agency protocol.

NOTE: If a Check Valve Adapter is provided with your administration set, remove it from the package and connect it to the distal end of the set.

 

INSTALLING THE ADMINISTRATION SET

1. Fully open the door of the pump.

2. Close the slide-clamp on the administration set.

3. Activate the Integral “Flow-Stop” by twisting and removing the breakaway tab.

4. Insert the blue tubing guide into the receptacle on right side of pump in the direction of the blue arrow, positioning the tubing in front of the door hinge.

5. Center the tubing in the middle of the pumping fingers, covering the yellow dot.

6. Holding the yellow Integral “Flow-Stop” by the handle, insert it on an angle into the receptacle on the left side of the pump in the direction of the yellow arrow.

CAUTION: Do not press down on the top of the Integral “Flow-Stop” when inserting it into the receptacle. This action could inadvertently open the Integral “Flow-Stop” and allow fluid to flow through the tubing.

7. Open the slide-clamp on the administration set.

8. Push the tubing slightly into the black Air Detector slot.

9. Fully close the door of the pump and latch it securely.

 

PRIMING THE SET

CAUTION: Disconnect set from patient’s access site before priming. Sets with in-line ASV must be primed on the pump.

By Gravity:

1. Twist and remove breakaway tab from “Flow- Stop”.

2. Squeeze “Flow-Stop” between thumb and forefinger to allow fluid to flow through tubing.

By Pump:

NOTE: Set must be installed into the pump.

1. Release any clamps on the administration set.

2. Press and release PRIME key from “Run Options” menu

3. Press and hold the PRIME key until set is free of air; release key to stop (each prime cycle allows up to 6 mL of fluid).

4. When prime is complete, press YES/ENTER to exit the prime screen.

While a PCA infusion is running, the display will alternate between various information screens.
