BodyGuard® 323
Multi-Therapy Ambulatory Infusion Pump

Multiply Your Options for Care

Five infusion modes let you deliver antibiotics, chemotherapy, total parenteral nutrition (TPN), patient-controlled analgesia (PCA), and general fluids therapy. Mount the BodyGuard 323 infusion pump on an IV pole or send it home with the patient.

Key Features

  • Simple Controls. For most therapies, there are only three controls the patient needs to use.
  • Five Infusion Modes. Continuous, Intermittent, TPN, PCA, 25-Step (Multi-Step).
  • Wide Range of Flow Rates. 0.1 to 1200 mL/hr. Permits a wide range of therapies.
  • Automatic Backup Battery. When installed in the pole-mount charger, the pump switches from AC power to battery backup whenever power is interrupted.

Main Features

  • Pole-Mount or Portable. Use one pump for hospital, clinic, or patient’s home.
  • Two Power Options. Operates on AC (mains) power or on batteries.
  • Three Battery Options. Choose one standard or extended-life rechargeable battery, or two 9V disposable ones.
  • Small and Lightweight. Easy to carry and fits in tight spaces.
  • 3-Level Access Code. Prevents accidental or unauthorized pump program changes.

Safety Features

  • In All Infusion Modes
  • 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 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 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.
  • In PCA Infusion Mode
  • Automatic Program Lock. Prevents tampering with, or unauthorized changes to, narcotic medication infusion program information.
  • Adjustable Bolus Delivery Speed. You can set the pump to deliver bolus doses at different rates for better results depending on the patient’s therapy.
  • Basal and Bolus Titration Limits. For redundant protection against over-infusion, you can set a master limit on medication amount delivered, plus different limits for specific patients.
  • Accumulation Limits for Set Time Periods. To further protect against over-infusion, you can limit the maximum medication the pump can deliver during one to 24 hours.
