Medical Syringe Pump Warnings
Surely by now you would think that most adults are familiar with the rules. Or if they are not, they should be in a position to exercise their moral compunction and common sense when cases arise when it is time to buy or rent syringe pumps.
And medical practitioners and all other professional or voluntary stakeholders within the health services industry should be receiving their goods through licensed and registered suppliers and distributors.
Red light warnings could be easy to detect when a distributor is not too concerned about inspecting your credentials. Syringe pumps can be sourced and supplied in sizes ranging from four to seven and a half inches. And this is without taking the security door into account.
The pumps are light in weight, coming in at around five and a half pounds. Alongside of positive displacement and flow rate factors, an operating principle will be in place. Occlusion alarm thresholds will also be set at low, medium and high.
Rate restrictions will all be made on behalf of practitioners or patients. This will be determined by the syringe size prescribed for distribution. And it appears to be fairly accurate, hovering around two percent of full scale plunger travel not taking into account syringe variations.
Emphasis should be placed on prescription. Approaching a retail or wholesale distributor for assistance should be accompanied by the requisite prescriptions papers issued by the medical authority. Both medical practitioners and their source suppliers should be in customer friendly positions being able to verify their authoritative levels.
Rule of law?
No person off the street should be able to rent or buy syringe pumps.
Apart from the health risks, there are also mounting environmental concerns whereby responsible disposal should also be taken into account.
