What Are the Functions and Precautions of the Infusion Set?

Infusion set, or infusion pump, as the name suggests, is a medical device for infusion. The traditional infusion method is to hang the liquid in the bottle or infusion bag at a high place, and use the gravity to make the liquid flow into the vein through the infusion tube, and the flow rate is manually adjusted by the clip placed on the tube, the adjustment index is to see the dripping speed (drip/min) in the dropper.

Before use, medical staff check the disinfection validity period of the disposable infusion set and whether there is any air leakage or other abnormalities in the packaging, take out the infusion set, insert the conical joint part into the infusion bottle, hang the infusion bottle on the infusion rod, exhaust the air until the liquid flows to the lower end of the infusion tube, close the regulator, and then pierce the venous needle into the sterilized vein. After fixing, untie the tourniquet and adjust the flow rate.
