The MedSystem III provides an accurate delivery of a variety of fluids, and uses administration sets that provide free flow protection. The MedSystem III displays infusion status for rate, volume remaining and volume infused. The rate range is from 0.1 - 999 milliliter per hour on each channel. Infusions can be programmed to deliver at a specified rate or over a specified period of time. Secondary mode allows fluids and medication to be delivered sequentially at two different rates. Configuration parameters allow the user to essentially have six available device types to achieve specific clinical applications General Purpose, Neonatal, Controller Pressure, Operating Room, General Purpose II, Operating Room II. The different parameters include minimum rates, baseline and minimum volumes, baseline and maximum pressures, and air-in-line thresholds. The MedSystem III operates on 115 VAC60 Hz, and an internal rechargeable battery pack. The MedSystem III weighs approximately 5.1 lbs 2.32 kgs, and is 6 in. W. X 7.875 in. H. X 2.10 in. D. The MedSystem III has an integral pole clamp that may secured to a NATO liner handle pole or a C-9 liner stanchion.
