Sapphire Epidural

The Sapphire Epidural pump is dedicated to Epidural infusion. 

While sharing the key benefits with the Sapphire infusion platform, the dedicated Epidural pump is tailored for Epidural applications:

  • Yellow colored sets, Yellow colored faceplate, on-screen yellow colored label
  • Limited rate ranges to ensure safe Epidural infusion.

The Sapphire Epidural includes several modes of delivery:

  • PCEA (patient controlled epidural analgesia) – patient controlled “on-demand doses” with optional basal rate and loading dose.
  • Intermittent Epidural – scheduled doses and optional basal rate.
  • PIEB – combines the intermittent scheduled doses with PCEA. Giving priority to the intermittent dose to ensure PIEB delivery and avoidance of dose stacking.

* For a complete Epidural infusion system see the Sapphire Epidural administration sets, bolus handle and lockboxes.
