Flow Rate Calculator
Complete the selection options below from top to bottom to calculate an estimated flow rate and infusion time for your planned therapy. For more information on steps to use this calculator, view the Instructions.
IMPORTANT: For healthcare professional use only. Ensure that you are familiar with the selected drug and its prescribing information and limitations for your country before using this calculator.
Dosage and administration information shown above is intended to reflect prescribed limits for the selected drug based on the selected country/region. Flow rate information for VersaRate and VersaRate Plus at position setting 1 and 2 for viscous fluids has been excluded in some cases due to significantly lower flow rate performances. Please contact EMED Technologies if you have any questions or require additional technical support.
NOTE: The flow rates shown above shall be used as a guide/reference only to illustrate the capabilities of the flow control/regulator sets when used to infuse the selected drug in combination with the selected parameters. These are a representation of expected values based on testing at room temperature between 20°C - 25°C (68°F - 77°F), and may vary based on different needle lengths, fluctuations in temperature (which significantly affects the viscosity of the selected drug), large height differences between the infusion pump and infusion site, and patient anatomy. Flow rates shown above represent an average expected flow rate, and may in some cases, for the VersaRate and VersaRate Plus, be lower or higher by up to ±40% at position settings 1-2, up to ±20% at position settings 3-4 and up to ±15% at higher position settings. This is a typical range of variability for these types of adjustable flow control devices. For the Infuset fixed rate controller, average flow rates may be higher or lower by up to ±15% due to system tolerance and the sources of variation already mentioned. For more information, please contact EMED Technologies.
Furthermore, EMED can only account for the regulatory status of its own products. Other products are included as part of this interactive lookup tool for convenience to the user, however it is still the user's responsibility to confirm the other products' regulatory status and compatibility requirements for a particular country or region before use.
Warnings and cautions regarding flow rate and volume limitations are based on recommendations made by the drug manufacturer of the selected drug and may be subject to change. All reasonable attempts are made to ensure that this calculator contains the most recent drug related information, but it is the user's responsibility to ensure familiarity with the relevant drug and its most recent instructions for use for their particular country before using this calculator.
