Does anyone have experience with these infusion pumps - good or bad. Especially the large volume IV pump.

Yes, they are used throughout the state public hospital system here in New South Wales. I think they are very good, we have a few issues but the support here is top rate. They have up until recently provided 5 years warranty but the new state contract offers 10 years!
There are a couple of "known issues" one that is a cable working loose (Motor rotation error) which takes about 5 minutes to fix so we don't bother sending them in for repair and we are seeing some power supply issues now ( 5 years in use) but you just stick the pump in a box, email the repair form in to the company and they take it from there. Little effort or time involved from our part. The company also come on site and do the annual testing so all in all, we luv'em grin

The infusion pumps are good enough but there could be some known issues. One most frequently faced issue is the "Door Open" alarm even when the door is closed. But resetting the connection usually does the job and takes around 15-20 minutes.

One time the vendors sent in pumps without the microdose calculation and we had to return and exchange all of them.

For the price, it's good and reliable.

Umesh, can you explain resetting the connection - do you mean to the network or just rebooting the device.

... or maybe opening the unit and re-seating the sensor connector? think


If you don't inspect ... don't expect.
