The BodyGuard 323™ Ambulatory Infusion Pump is a multi-therapy pump suitable for the hospital and homecare environments with three programmable modes (TPN, continuous and 25 step).

Key Features

  • Designed to be intuitive to program and use
  • Configurable modes of operation which can be set to a speciality or patients understanding – TPN, continuous and multi-step
  • Adjustable air-in-line detection. The cumulative ultrasonic counter can be set according to local protocols
  • Variable occlusion pressure settings, configurable to the route of infusion


Description Piston mechanism, ambulatory infusion pump with a single channel The pump can be used for ambulatory care in a carrying pouch, rucksack or mounted into a charger unit. Pole mounted charging unit available (with or without the large infusion status display)
Software Version McTPN06A
IV Administration set Dedicated IV administration sets, with anti-siphon valve to prevent free flow
Flow Rate 0.1ml/h to 100ml/h in 0.1ml/h increments and 100ml/h to 1,200ml/h in 1ml/h increments
Volume Accuracy +/- 5%
Adjustable Occlusion Pressure Settings Three alarm levels available and the default is Normal (720mmHg) Low - 360mmHg Normal - 720mmHg High - 1,080mmHg
Pressure Accuracy +/-155mmHg (+/-3psi)
Air Sensor Ultrasonic, adjustable air bubble size. Air-in-line accumulation and single bubble detection
Air-in-line limits 0.04ml to 2ml
Priming Rate 100ml/h to 1,200ml/h in 1ml/h increments
KVO rate Rate (max) 5ml/h in 0.1ml/h increments, 0ml/h (default) Volume (max) -25ml
Stand-by Time (pump paused) 2min (before 'Pump Paused Too Long' alarm sounds)
Total Time Setting 99hrs 59min
Modes of Operation - Total Parenteral Nutrition (TPN) The program has a taper up/taper down pattern. The parameters to be set are - Total Volume, Time Up, Time Down and Total Time. The pump will calculate the infusion rates required Infusion rate 0.1ml/h to 1,200ml/h Total Volume Infused 0.1ml to 9,999ml
Modes of Operation – Continuous User can program a Rate or Volume Over Time Infusion rate 0.1ml/h to 100ml/h in 0.1ml/h increments and 100ml/h to 1,200ml/h in 1ml/h increments Total Volume Infused 0.1ml to 9,999ml in 0.1ml increments or 1ml to 9,999ml in 1ml increments. Including Secondary infusion (see below)
Modes of Operation - Multi-Step User can design a specific protocol for drug delivery which contains up to 25 steps by rate/volume/time Infusion rate 0.1ml/h to 100ml/h in 0.1ml/h increments and 100ml/h to 1,200ml/h in 1ml/h increments Total Volume Infused (per step) 0.1ml to 9,999ml Accumulated Total Volume Infused (for all steps) up to 10L
Secondary Infusion Secondary infusion (Piggy back) programmable with the same infusion rate and volume capabilities as the default programme. User can titrate the Secondary Infusion with the same method that is used for a primary continuous infusion. Available in Continuous mode only
Keypad Locking During operation, all keys are disabled excluding the STOP/NO and INFO key.
Programme Locking Enables the operator to lock out the setting keys, so that entered parameters and set programs cannot be changed once they are set.
Maximal Rate Locking Enables the operator to set a maximum rate for the pump. The programmable rate can be adjusted only up to the pre-set limit
Alerts Low battery, program nearly complete
Alarms/notifications air/upstream occlusion, down occlusion, door open, pump paused too long (un-attended), end program, end battery, missing key, restart pump, system/technical problem, wrong TPN data, lock mode, fatal error
Alarm volume Range 0 to 7; 4 (min) and 7 (max)
LED Indicator ON/OFF (Default - OFF)
Event Log Date and time stamped pump event history (last 512 events visible)
