An infusion product is a medical device that delivers fluids into a patient's body in controlled amounts such as nutrients and medications. Infusion pumps are commonly used in clinical settings such as hospitals, nursing homes, and home care settings.
An infusion pump is typically operated by a trained user, who programs the rate and duration of fluid delivery via a built-in software interface. Infusion pumps have significant advantages over manual fluid administration including the ability to deliver fluids in very small volumes and at precisely programmed rates or automated intervals.
They can deliver nutrients as well as medications such as insulin or other hormones, antibiotics, chemotherapy drugs, and pain relievers.
