Innovation Description

Shift Labs’ low-cost, battery-powered infusion monitor delivers IV fluids with precision to patients, eliminating the risk of fluid overload. Fluids administered too aggressively can be harmful to patients, especially young children and patients with conditions that predispose them to fluid overload. Hydration is critical for Ebola patient survival and without consistent electricity in many treatment environments it becomes difficult to use more advanced infusion monitors and fluid tracking becomes complicated and time consuming. This handheld device converts the number of drops falling from an IV fluid bag into accurate and actionable flow rate data displayed on an LCD screen. This intervention improves the accuracy and efficiency of patient hydration, which results in reduced workloads for healthcare workers.
