What is a Volutrol?

What is a Volutrol?

The VOLU-trol/E Measurement and Control Station with ELECTRA-flo Transmitter utilizes the ELECTRA-flo Thermal Dispersion sensing technology can be used to continuously measure and control ducted airflow.

What is the purpose of a Buretrol?

SET-UP: A Buretrol may be used in lieu of the “Select-a-flow” administration device. It is not intended for use on trauma or fluid replacement/challenge. The Buretrol is to be considered as a fluid volume limiter.

Is Buretrol same as Soluset?

soluset and buretrol the same thing???? Yes, both are chambers that hold 100-150 cc fluid. The fluid can be isolated to give meds, or if used on a ped patient or one you are concerned about fluid overload, you can add a specific amount of fluid. It is spiked between the bag of fluid and the administration set.

How do you administer medication through a burette?

Drugs administered via: Burette of an infusion set: to dilute the drug in a smaller volume via burette giving system, hang the bag of infusion fluid and gradually open the roller camp to allow appropriate amount of diluent into the burette. Inject the prescribed drug into the burette via the additive port.

Why do nurses use burettes?

The use of a burette allows fine control of fluid volume and avoids inadvertent over-transfusion.

What is a Soluset used for?

A nurse injects the medication into a soluset, runs it through the tubing in a timed way until the soluset is empty, and then adds a flush solution to the soluset to accommodate for the dead space of the IV tubing and complete the delivery of the medication to the patient.

What is a piggyback IV?

› An intravenous (I.V.) “piggyback,” or secondary infusion, is the administration of. medication that is diluted in a small volume of I.V. solution (e.g., 50–250 ml in a minibag) through an established primary infusion line. The piggyback can be administered by. gravity or by I.V. infusion pump.

Why is a burette used in nursing?

It can minimise damage to the person’s veins resulting from irritating medications and limit potential toxicity from medications administered too quickly within the time constraints of nursing staff when the bolus method is used.

Why do we use burette in nursing?

What are the advantages of using a burette?

The difference in volume can be calculated by taking the difference of the final and initial recorded volume. Using the burette with a colorless solution may make it difficult to observe the bottom of the meniscus, so the black strip technique can make it easier to accurately observe and record measurements.

Why do we need a burette?

A burette is used to dispense small volumes of liquid called aliquots, or sometimes gas, with high accuracy. It consists of a long glass tube with a valve at one end to control the flow of liquid. Burettes serve essentially the same purpose as a pipette.

What is Heplock IV?

A saline lock – sometimes called a “hep-lock” in reference to how it used to be used – is an intravenous (IV) catheter that is threaded into a peripheral vein, flushed with saline, and then capped off for later use. Nurses use saline locks to have easy access to the vein for potential injections.

How many ml is a Soluset?

Nominal Length: 18in. Tubing I.D.: 0.112in. Priming Capacity: 3.1mL.

What is Y site IV?

Not sure what a Y-site is? This image shows where the Y-site is located, it is the location of ports where you can attach another IV line or a syringe for IV push medications. Most IV tubing will have one Y-site before the tubing enters the pump and another one closer to the patient.

What is a burette IV administration?

Sterile infusion set with graduated chamber (burette) for slow intravenous administration of a precise volume of infusion or injectable drug, over a given time. This system limits the risk for hypervolemia (an excessive volume of infusion being given to a patient).
