The Monidrop IV infusion monitor; reliable intravenous therapy for every patient with a small and easy-to-use tool.

  • Reduced risk of complications and helps to overcome inaccuracies – Shorter hospital stays reduce costs

  • Better accuracy vs manual measurement – Helping nurses to reduce mistakes

  • Safer and more accurate care for patients

The Monidrop® infusion monitor has been designed for use in hospital wards and for home health care. It is a device that helps in the administration of an accurate amount of liquid. Monidrop® thus raises the standard of basic IV therapy, overcoming the inaccuracies associated with the manual measurement. Over 90% of hospitalised patients receive IV fluid therapy, which makes it one of the most common invasive treatment procedures and a critical component of modern medicine.

Cost Savings

Complications can be reduced with accurate intravenous (IV) fluid therapy. This can result in shorter hospital stay and reduces costs. Additionally, common infusion sets are suitable for Monidrop®, which in turn will save costs in consumables as much as over 80% compared to devices which require dedicated infusion sets.

Helping Nurses

Monidrop® helps nurses set the infusion speed accurately, control the IV therapy better and reduce the risks of mistakes. Monidrop® is very useful with antibiotics, basic fluids, blood products and nutrition.

Patient Safety

Many research articles prove that inaccurate IV therapy can cause extended hospital stays, complications and even severe injuries[3]. Basic IV therapy is very often conducted manually without any assisting device, which makes it prone to errors. The Monidrop® infusion monitor is designed to improve the quality of care in a manually adjusted IV therapy.

For what purpose and for whom is Monidrop® intended?

Monidrop® is designed for the basic IV therapy in hospital wards and for home health care.

What liquids can be used when using Monidrop®?

Antibiotics, general purpose IV solutions, blood products, and regular nutrients.

Can Monidrop be cleaned using the normal cleaning liquid chemicals?

Monidrop® can be cleaned and disinfected using the regular medical device cleaning methods and chemicals. For more information, please see the user manual.

How is the infusion flow rate adjusted?

Flow rate is adjusted by using the clamp, and the infusion speed can be seen on the screen (ml/h). Monidrop® monitors the infusion but does not adjust it.

Can Monidrop be used for the same purpose as a syringe pump?

Monidrop® is designed to improve the quality of care in infusion therapy that is often conducted manually without the assistance of any electronic device.

Does Monidrop® require a device-specific IV infusion set?

Monidrop® is compatible with the most commonly used drip sets with 20 drops/ml. It can be quickly fastened on to the drip chamber.

What kinds of alarms can be set?

The user can set alarm limits for the target infusion speed (ml/h), total volume (ml), or elapsed time. In case of alarm, Monidrop® indicates alarms with LED lights and sounds. The alarm can also be set to silent mode, e.g. during night time.

How do the alarms work?

An audio alarm will be given for medium level alarms. The alarm light will display a yellow LED light, indicating a low priority alarm, and a blinking yellow light indicates a medium priority alarm. If there are no alarms, the LED light is green.

Alarms are described in detail in the user manual. Alarms may occur due to the fact that the infusion speed deviates from the preset alarm limits or the infusion speed is outside the measurement range of 6ml/h…1200ml/h. Also, a low battery alarm will be given with a sound and a LED light.

How is Monidrop® charged and can it be used while charging?

The device can be charged with the device’s charger, which is included in the sales package. Monidrop® can be used while charging.

Does the device have wireless connectivity?

Wireless connectivity can be implemented to the hospital network as a separate feature.
