Over 10% of children admitted to East African hospitals are in shock and require immediate infusion therapy, 12% of these children die, often within hours of admission. Lack of appropriate infusion sets is a major contributor. Infusion sets on the East African market are quite expensive to maintain and procure costing between 2500-6000 USD and require device specific consumables such as giving sets. As such, hospitals use the manually controlled giving sets which are inaccurate and time consuming.
The Electronically Controlled Gravity Feed (ECGF) Infusion set has been designed for safety, accuracy, ease of use and maintenance at 3% the cost of an imported device with similar functionality. The device is applicable for use with all existing consumables such as giving sets and syringes. It also features a dynamic flow control that saves on clinician time spent monitoring the therapy.
