IV Administration Sets

IV Administration Sets are IV infusion device to deliver medication to the patient at a controlled rate and prescribed interval. Some medications require an intermittent infusion at a slower rate or in multiple doses. Administration sets prevents rapid infusion to ensure the safety of the patient. Controlled IV solution sets prevent overdose, harm, or an adverse reaction to the patient. When multiple medications are infused, a Secondary Administration Set like the Carefusion Secondary Set piggybacks on the primary IV admin set for controlled infusion.

IV Administration Types

Medication Administration Sets requires gravity or an electronic pump to regulate intermittent medication. The option selected will determine which type of adminstation set is used.

  • Gravity Infusion suspends the IV medication bag placed on an IV pole. It connects to a compatible gravity administration set like the B. Braun Primary Gravity Set. It includes a roller clamp to regulate the flow at an infusion rate of drops per minute, calculated by the medical professional. A primary infusion can be administered by gravity or pump, but a secondary piggyback infusion typically is administered via an IV pump.
  • IV Infusion Pump or an Electronic Infusion Device (EID) controls the medication delivery with its programming options to set the dose rate as well as intervals for multiple doses. The Sigma Spectrum Infusion System is calibrated to work with Baxter IV Administration Set for maximum flow rate results.

    The infusion pump is clamped onto the IV pole and connected to the administration set. Each set comes with a sterile spike to puncture the IV medication bag. The pump requiries specialized training and should only be used by trained medical staff to avoid error and harm to the patient.
