The IMED GEMINI PC-2 is a dual channel volumetric infusion pump and controller which provides accurate and automatic infusion of intravenous drugs and fluids.
The dual channels are independent and the PC-2 may be operated as any combination of pump and/or controller unless the P/C Mode selection is locked out.
Secondary (or piggyback) fluid may also be automatically infused at delivery rates and volumes independent of the primary infusion parameters, with automatic changeover to the primary infusion parameters when the secondary infusion is complete.
Computer operation is provided when the PC-2 is interfaced with a host computer. The technical data necessary to interface the PC2 with a host computer is provided in the PC-2 Maintenance Manual.
