First of all, the infusion pump is generally called a capacity pump. Its main purpose is to replace the traditional gravity-type bottle infusion to achieve more precise and safer administration.
Syringe pumps, also known as micro-infusion pumps, can be seen from the name, the main purpose of the syringe pump is to supplement the volumetric infusion pump in micro-administration. Because, the microinfusion pump (ie, the syringe pump) is more accurate than a typical volumetric infusion pump when administered in small doses.
Second, compared to syringe pumps, the advantages of infusion pumps are larger capacity, a wider range of flow rates, less liquid type restrictions, cheaper consumables, lower drug concentration, less irritation, and easier needle-to-needle alarms And infusion warming and other functions.
Thirdly, compared to infusion pumps, the advantages of syringe pumps are higher precision when dispensing small volumes, more flexible dispensing capacity, easier desktop placement, and smaller flow pulsations.
It can be seen that there is no essential difference between the infusion pump and the syringe pump, and it can be called a sister pump. Clinically whether to use an infusion pump or a syringe pump, generally consider the following factors:
(1) The number of syringe pumps used in general cardiovascular and anesthesia departments is greater than that of infusion pumps.
(2) General infusion pumps for obstetrics and gynecology, pediatrics/neonatology, emergency departments, critical care, oncology, and burns are more practical.
(3) Infusion pumps, transfusions, large amounts of body fluids, and electrolytes can only be administered by infusion pumps.
(4) The use of infusion pump supplies is more easily managed in general small and medium hospitals and general departments.
