Infusion Pump

As you'have learnt earlier, the amount of fluid to be administered to neonate is based on the neonate's weight and physiological status. It is recommended that in a neonate the fluid should be given through infusion pump, because this devise allows for a more accurate setting of flow rates.

An infusion pump can be used to control the administration of small volumes of fluid, blood, medication and total parental nutrition. It is important to be familiar with the type of infusion pump, used at your institution. Be sure to set controls for both the amount of fluid to be infused and rate of infusion. Check the pump frequently to be certain it is programmed and working accurately.
