Precision control of the drip rate has been added to intravenous administration of fluids by a new line of sets called Correctflo, now available from Biomedical Dynamics Corporation, Minneapolis.
The new sets are designed to maintain a constant flow rate without the time-consuming readjustment of roller clamps, and serve to prevent the possibility of fluid runaway.
The disposable Correctflo sets are compatible with all existing I.V. fluids, containers and catheters. They are as quick, as easy and as economical to use as conventional I.V. sets and require no equipment or maintenance.
Correctflo I.V. products are available in a variety of complete administration sets, extension sets and custom configurations. For more information contact: Biomedical Dynamics Corporation, 7280 Commerce Circle East, Minneapolis, MN 55432 or call (612) 572-8812.
A long-life universal quartz pressure transducer, the HP 1290C, is now offered by Hewlett-Packard Company.
It is compatible with virtually any monitor or pressure amplifier for the measurement of physiological fluid pressures. Compatibility is easily accomplished with connectors for adapter cables to both HP and non-HP monitoring equipment.
The HP 1290C provides for patient transport between hospital departments where different monitors may be in use.
