Syringe infusion pumps are used to administer intravenous (IV) fluids such as antibiotics, regional anesthetics, antiarrhythmic medications, and chemotherapeutic agents. Syringe pumps ensure highly accurate volume delivery and consistent flow for small volumes of potent pharmacologic agents that are typically delivered at flow settings between 0.5 and 10 milliliter per hour (mL/hr) in increments of 0.1 or 1 mL/hr.
The components of a syringe-pump system are a syringe, controls, an actuation mechanism (usually a lead screw with a pusher block), and a motor. Compatible syringes for each system vary in style and size. A pump expels fluid from the syringe by advancing either the plunger or the barrel at a set rate. In most syringe pumps, a motor drives a lead screw or gear mechanism.
The speed of the motor varies with the set flow rate and the syringe size. Most pumps use a stepper motor that delivers a specific volume with each pulse; varying the infusion rate changes the frequency of the pulses. However, the flow rate is effectively the same as in units with continuously variable motors because the boluses from the stepper motor are frequent and small.
Syringe pumps have calibrated flow settings, typically indicated in mL/hr. Some pumps can be programmed in mL/min and units of mass (e.g., mg, μg), which can be linked to a patient's weight (in kg). For example, physicians often prescribe doses in units such as μg/kg/min. The syringe's diameter and the rate at which the plunger is advanced determine the rate of flow (the same motor speed will result in a higher flow rate with a larger-barrel syringe). Syringe infusion pumps also include safety and alarm features to avoid injuring the patient receiving treatment. Common alarm conditions include flow occlusion, loss of power, end of infusion, and no syringe loaded.
