Infusion pump administers wide range of treatments without batteries or power

CME Medical : 31 May, 2014  (New Product)
CME Medical announces exclusive distribution rights for the Myfuser silicone elastomeric infusion pump in the UK and Ireland. Myfuser has been designed and manufactured to a high-quality specification and combines a range of patient and clinician benefits; accuracy, safety, comfort and ease of use.
Infusion pump administers wide range of treatments without batteries or power

CME Medical plans to focus on two main clinical areas – anaesthesia/pain management and oncology - ensuring that Myfuser is available for acute hospital use, as well as home therapy to assist with enhanced recovery. Myfuser administers the infusion of anaesthetic and analgesic drugs for pain treatment both post-operatively and for long term management of chronic pain, as well as delivering chemotherapeutic drugs to hospitalised patients or under home care. Myfuser is also available for infusions of antibiotic and antiviral therapy.


 


This technology harnesses the elasticity of its internal balloon to push solutions of drugs through a filtering system into the infusion line and down to the patient. A wide range of treatments can now be administered via infusion without the need for batteries or power supply.


 


The use of high quality medical grade silicone and first-rate glass flow restrictor capillary means that Myfuser is particularly accurate, in any case within +/-10%. The balloon itself is able to perform uniform and symmetrical inflation and deflation as any push pressure variations are controlled via the presence of a mobile piston sliding along the fixed rod. In turn, this constant pressure ensures the best conditions for the correct delivery of drug therapy to patients.


 


The rigid, crush-proof container protects the balloon, and the filling port is equipped with a special anti-reflux valve to prevent foreign particles from entering the system. 


 


Additional safety features include:



  • An anti-kinking tube to prevent accidental interruption of infusion


  • A removable clamp to allow voluntary and controlled interruption of infusion


  • Anti-reflux value and a 200 micron filter on the filling port prevent foreign particles from entering the system



Patients will benefit from the comfort provided by ergonomic design – compact, lightweight and easy portability with a belt clip and optional carry case. For health care professionals, the filling port can be laid down on the working surface during filling with limited force required. Priming is simple and fast with the combination of a double membrane filter and distal vented cap with hydrophobic filter, allowing automatic expulsion of air from the device. Myfuser features a magnified graduated scale to allow health care professionals to view the infusion progress clearly. 


 


John Carrington, Managing Director of CME Medical comments, “Myfuser has exceptionally high manufacturing and design qualities, making this a safe, efficient and accurate choice for acute and home care settings. MyFuser is the next generation in portable infusion pump technology.”
