BodyGuard® 121
Dual-Channel Ambulatory Infusion Pump

BodyGuard® 121
Dual-Channel Ambulatory Infusion Pump

Key Features

  • Two Independent Channels. Deliver one infusion or two different infusions at the same time.
  • Small and Lightweight. Easy to carry and fits in tight spaces for air medical transport, in an ambulance, or mounted at bedside.
  • Battery or AC-Powered. Runs on a rechargeable battery or AC (mains) power.

Main Features

  • Four Infusion Modes. Continuous, Intermittent, TPN, Dose (custom drug library).
  • Portable or Pole-Mount. Use the same pump for patient transport and hospital infusions.
  • Wide Range of Flow Rates. 0.1 to 1200 mL/hr. Permits a wide range of therapies.
  • Drug Library. Customize infusion of up to 100 medications.
  • Automatic Backup Battery. When installed in the pole-mount charger, the pump switches from AC power to battery backup whenever power is interrupted.

Safety Features

  • Drug Library Dosing Limits. Set your own minimum and maximum doses to help prevent infusion errors.
  • Triple Free-Flow Protection. BodySet® tubing sets include a clamp and backcheck/anti-free-flow valve. A spring-loaded plate pinches the tubing when the pump door is closed.
  • Double Air-in-Line Protection. The pump’s ultrasonic air sensor triggers an alarm if an air bubble exceeds 5 mL or if the total volume of air over 15 minutes exceeds your specified volume (adjustable 0.1 to 2 mL).
  • Maximum Flow Rate Limit. Set this limit to protect against possible large programming errors. The limit applies to all infusion modes.
  • Upstream and Downstream Occlusion Protection. System occlusion above or below the pump will trigger an Air/Up Occlusion or Down Occlusion alarm.
  • Adjustable Occlusion Pressure. Configure the pump’s downstream occlusion pressure to fit your therapy.
  • Unattended Pump Alert. The pump will alert you if it has been powered on but is not infusing, and two minutes have passed without a control key being pressed.
  • Backup Power Source. When installed in the pole-mount charger, the pump switches from AC (mains) power to battery backup whenever power is interrupted.
  • Mandatory Repeat Program Verification. Whenever the infusion program ends, you must either confirm the infusion settings or change them before repeating the infusion.
  • Event Log. The pump automatically records operating events into a database that gives you an infusion history. It also helps you diagnose and prevent pump problems.
  • Non-DEHP Administration Sets. For patient protection, BodySet® tubing sets do not contain Di (2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP). They are not made with natural rubber latex.
