The MTP is registered with the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a transport infusion pump. This is a plus for your risk management program for your malpractice insurance.
The MTP models (1001) and (1001a) meet U.S. Military Standards 461 (c) and (d) and 810 while under battery operation. The MTP is used by the U.S. Navy in Operation Deep Freeze, and it was also used in Operation Dessert Storm, and both the MTP and MVP-1 were used in Operation Provide Promise in Croatia and Bosnia.
The MTP will effectively operate in any position, even when it is at the same level as the solution container.
All of the MTP's functions and alarms are controlled by a powerful INTEL® microcomputer.
Precise control of the MTP's pumping mechanism by the pump's microcomputer provides for accurate and continuous infusion - no bolusing effect.
The MTP has a rotational and detachable mounting clamp which enables the pump to be mounted on IV poles, bed rails, wheel chairs, stretchers, and suitable aircraft structures.
The pump's rotary peristaltic pumping action enables the clinician to infuse all types of solutions, regardless of viscosity, as well as, whole blood and blood products.
