According to the National Quality Forum, “patient death or serious injury associated with intravascular air embolism that occurs while being cared for in a healthcare setting” is on the list of SREs (Serious Reportable Events) and therefore is not always covered by insurance. The Belmont® Rapid Infuser features automatic air removal and can help to prevent air embolism.
All Belmont Instrument Corporation products feature automatic air removal to help keep patients safe. The Belmont® Rapid Infuser has two air detectors to detect air before it enters the system. If air is detected, it alarms and closes off the patient line, stops pumping and heating, and opens a return line to the reservoir. With the push of a button, fluid and air are pumped back to the reservoir and in seconds the system is ready to go again.
