A Guide to Purchasing Propofol Infusion Pumps
Propofol infusion pumps are used in a variety of medical situations. According to the Mayo Clinic, Propofol is an anesthetic agent used in some surgeries to, “produce loss of consciousness before and during surgery. An anesthetic may be given in small amounts to relieve anxiety or pain without causing unconsciousness.” Propofol works in causing relaxation and feelings of sleepiness before medical procedures. When propofol is administered, an anesthesiologist will need to supplement breathing or have the patient use a ventilator. Propofol is only used as an injectable by healthcare professionals. Soma Technology has a variety of propofol infusion pumps for use by anesthesiologists. Continue reading more about propofol pumps.
The Baxter InfusOR infusion pump delivers intravenous agents during anesthetic procedures. Using the Smart Label system of drug specific labels, it can conveniently deliver narcotics, muscle relaxants, vasoactives and more. Drug delivery options are changed by a particular intravenous agent. Delivery choices are made in drug dosing units and with the patient’s body weight. This machine is one of the most preferred propofol pumps in surgical centers. It’s lightweight and is battery operated. A bracket in the back securely holds the infusion pump to a pole, this helps provide good accessibility during use. When attached to the propofol infusion pump, magnetically coded labels tell the microcomputer the delivery rates of the specific medicine on the label. Rotary input switches, set by the user, select the drug delivery rate, then calculations are performed by the microcomputer so the drug is delivered as indicated. The InfusOR infusion pump accepts BD or MonoJect 20cc and 60cc plastic disposable syringes which attach to tubing sets for connection to the patient’s primary intravenous line.

This pump accepts standard disposable syringes from 1 mL to 60 mL in size. The numeric keypad simplified programming and makes the pump easy-to-use. During use, the status display prompts the user to enter data about the infusion. The pump operates on an internal rechargeable battery pack and can also be operated while attached to a 900-series battery charger, or a multi-charger.

The Refurbishment Process
Each of our products come from our respective purchasing team who perform extensive research on acquiring great machines that are popular and in demand. In addition to the propofol pumps listed, we carry and refurbish many other pieces of equipment. This equipment can be used in clinics, hospitals, surgery centers, and even in some physician offices.
When a piece of equipment comes through our doors, it is inspected and tested to see if the unit functions as per OEM standards. Soma Technology has dedicated and certified biomedical engineers specific for each piece of equipment. Our biomedical engineers thoroughly examine, test, and replace necessary parts making sure all aspects are working perfectly. Once the machine functions like new, it is then calibrated back to the original engineering manufacturer’s specifications. After our fully license and trained biomedical engineers have the unit functioning the way it did when it was first made, the product undergoes a special cosmetic restoration process. The equipment is sent to cosmetics to be aesthetically restored by cleaning, repairing minor scratches and dents, painting, and if necessary, decals are replaced. Before our equipment gets labeled patient-ready and packaged up for shipment, it goes through a final quality control test to ensure once again that everything is looking and working like new.
