HydroBalance* represents a fundamental breakthrough in IV Pump testing. HydroBalance maintains constant head height for the IV bag fluid, even as the bag empties during testing. The patent-pending design pivots as the IV bag begins to drain (see product images). Fluid height is maintained at a level within ± 1 inch (2.54cm) from the starting head height. HydroBalance improves both accuracy and efficiency, making it the new essential tool in IV pump testing!

Challenge: IV pump manufacturers’ requirements for fluid height in IV pump testing can be very strict — because the most common IV pumps have a 1% loss of flow rate for every 10-inch loss in fluid-height. Refilling the IV bag or readjusting the IV pole may compensate somewhat, yet these methods are time-consuming and difficult to employ in a consistent manner.
Solution: Hydrobalance helps Biomeds face this considerable challenge by keeping fluid height constant within ±1 inch (2.54cm) from the starting head height. With losses in fluid height kept to a minimum, HydroBalance keeps associated losses in flow rate to a minimum, resulting in more accurate IV Pump Analysis results (see graph below). Gain precision and simplify IV pump testing procedure simultaneously with HydroBalance.
*HydroBalance has been designed and validated for use in the service and preventive maintenance of infusion pumps. Not intended for use on patients.
