Title: Evaluation of Intravenous Therapy Devices in the Hyperbaric Chamber
Author: Stanga, DF
Abstract: Ventilators, cardiac monitors, intravenous (IV) pumps, and other equipment are being evaluated to meet a U.S. Navy-identified need to improve patient care levels in the hyperbaric environment. Though the MTP MILITARY is currently the only IV pump that has been found suitable for use in the hyperbaric chamber, a search of the market has identified three pumps that afford increased capability for patient care. This report presents results from a series of tests conducted to increase the IV pump options available to commands operating hyperbaric chambers. The pumps evaluated each have capabilities that may make them appealing in different operational scenarios.
