Infusion pumps are used in a clinical environment to supply patients with controlled doses of liquid, medicines or food. The pressure needed for successful automatic administration of liquids largely depends on whether the liquid is applied intravenously, subcutaneously or arterially. To ensure proper dosage AMSYS recommends the use of sensors with a high accuracy and resolution. Incorrect dosing can cause serious complications or even death. This is one of the most critical uses of pressure in the medical industry.
Relative or differential pressure must be measured here within a range of 200 mbar to 2 bar.
