Infusion Protection

When a patient is treated by intravenous infusion, a crucial problem that needs to be avoided is blood reversion or the entrance of air, especially for blind, the aged and hypotension people.
To overcome such issue, a tilted pad is installed in the middle of the Murphy tube with a small hole beneath it. Addition, the transfusion tube is extended into the Murphy tube.
When the level of liquid in the tube is lower than the infusion tube but higher than the hole beneath the tilted pad, air is restricted f¬rom entering the tube.
The vacuum part cause the gravity of liquid column is equal to the blood pressure, which prevent blood reversion.
