DripAssist™ Infusion Rate Monitor brief overview

DripAssist™ is a passive monitor designed to be a supplementary monitor that measures the flow of the fluid through the drip chamber of a standard IV administration set. DripAssist™ does not control the flow rate of fluids passing through the drip chamber. It monitors the drops passing through the drip chamber by tracking the intervals between drops and calculates a drip rate in drops per minute. Using the drip rate, the DripAssist™ estimates flow rate and total volume that are based on the manufacturer’s stated drip factor of the tubing set used. Calculations are displayed on the LCD screen.  

After the target infusion rate has been set, an alarm can be activated to alert the user to any changes from the pre-set range (i.e. sounding an alert, when the flow rate changes, the drip bag is fully drained, or the flow stops).        

DripAssist™ clips onto any gravity drip set to accurately measure flow rate and volume of any IV medication or fluid. DripAssist™ counts drops within 1% accuracy across the entire measurement range, monitoring IV infusions reliably and continually, so that the exact infused volume is always known.
