Advancing Patient Safety 

Through Early Detection of IV Infiltrations

THE NEED

Addressing preventable harm in IV therapy

For too long, IV infiltration has been an accepted outcome of peripheral IV therapy. ivWatch has introduced a medical device designed to address this issue and to help improve patient safety.

IV Infiltration

KNOW THE FACTS

Infusion Pump Pressure Alarms Do NOT Detect Infiltrations

“A common misconception still persists that occlusion alarms on infusion pumps will signal infiltration. ECRI Institute is not aware of any currently marketed infusion pump that can reliably detect infiltration.”

“Do not rely on EID alarms to detect intravenous IV infiltration or extravasation, as these alarms are not intended to detect disruption of the fluid flow pathway.”

“Most manufacturers state in the user manual that their pumps are not designed or intended to detect infiltrations.”

“Relying on an infusion pump’s downstream occlusion alarm to identify an infiltration condition is not good practice.”
