Speed and control in the palm of your hand.

Current methods of fluid delivery are too slow to quickly restore intravascular volume in patients with severe shock and hypotension. For these patients “time is tissue,” meaning every minute of continued hypotension can result in more organ injury. LifeFlow offers a simple way to restore perfusion with a rapid and controlled fluid bolus.

IV pumps and gravity infusion are not suitable for patients with hypotension or shock. Mechanical rapid infusers are best suited for vascular access. Pressure bags require constant attention and determining volume of fluid delivery is difficult. LifeFlow is the only method that provides rapid, intuitive, and controlled fluid delivery through any type of vascular access.

Compare LifeFlow to Other Delivery Methods

Standard methods of fluid resuscitation include gravity infusion, IV infusion pumps, pressure bags, and the use of the manual “push-pull” syringe technique (PPT), which is commonly used in pediatric emergency care. All of these techniques have drawbacks that limit the ability of providers to achieve fluid delivery goals. Infusion pumps deliver a maximum rate of 1000 mL/hr and can only achieve 60 mL/kg over 15 min in patients weighing less than 4 kg. Gravity flow is also universally inadequate when rapid fluid delivery is required to reverse shock and hypotension.  The addition of a pressure bag (PB) has been shown to speed fluid delivery, but this technique requires constant re-inflation to achieve adequate flow.  

With PPT, providers may be able to achieve ACCM/PALS guidelines, but the technique is complex, labor-intensive, and can result in syringe contamination.
