The primary feature of the Lifecare PCA III is the bar code reader, which is designed to automate drug identification. Other enhancements include new programming features, a numeric keypad to directly enter programming values, and a device weight of less than 12 pounds. The PCA 3 system includes a microprocessor based infusion device with keypad controls, patient pendant, a bar coded drug vial, and a compatible administration set (see Section 2.3 for list of compatible sets).
The pump has a serial port for connection to a computer or printer, and the software is field upgradeable. It is intended to operate on AC power, but an internal battery is provided to maintain operation for short periods of time when AC power is not available.
All of our pumps are patient-ready with a 90-day warranty. Next day shipping is available. Call today to buy or rent.
