ivWatch is a continuous I.V. monitoring system which alerts caregivers to an early infiltration/ extravasation of the patient’s I.V. site. 80% of infiltrations/ extravasations can be detected by ivWatch before the caregiver is alerted (Johnson et al. Cincinnati Children’s Hospital- due to be published soon.) Caregivers can then check the I.V. site and if necessary, can turn off the infusion and re site, thus reducing the incidence of complications of infiltration/extravasation before they become a serious problem.
