Before you begin your journey in finding the right MRI infusion pump and patient monitor that is best equipped to handle your practice’s needs, let’s define what role these integral portable pieces will play during the MRI scanning procedure.
An infusion pump is a device that controls the rate at which a patient's intravenous fluid is administered. This safe and programable process assists in the patient bedside practice with its automated delivery of IV fluids, medications, sedatives, antibiotics, and more. An MRI scanning procedure can take anywhere between 15 and 90 minutes, and in some cases can last up to 2 hours, so critically ill patients who require a constant drip infusion cannot be without sustained medication for this extended period of time. A portable infusion pump can be placed in the scanning room when the patient is being scanned inside the MRI machine, allowing you to provide a constant flow of fluids during the scanning process. This system ensures a predictable delivery of fluids for critically ill patients so that they are always receiving a sustained flow of medications.
An MRI patient monitor can further simplify the MRI scanning procedure by assisting the caregiver with acquiring, processing, and displaying the patient's vital signs and measurements that are taken during the MRI exam and patient transport. This allows continuous observations of the patient's health during the extended time that the patient will be inside the MRI and away from caregiver assistance.
