Abstract

pressures as the bag empties. Two surgeons may inject si- multaneously by inserting two venous lines in the solution bag. The flow rate of the solution being injected is ob- served in the reservoir and is controlled in the usual man- ner with the knob. Discussion Soft tissues are often infiltrated with vasopressor solu- tions prior to different surgical procedures. To ease and hasten the injection of large quantities of these solutions several commercially available pumps are on the market. Their price may be to high for many surgical centers to buy them. The simple and inexpensive device to ease and hasten the injection of large amounts of vasopressor or other solutions is presented. It allows the simultaneous use by two surgeons and may be assembled from the parts already found in the intensive care units and operating theaters. The injector is very easy to construct, to use and to maintain. References 1.
