Brief Summary:
A single arm trial consisting of 70 adult volunteers to assess the safety and efficacy of the ivWatch Model 400 when observing infiltrated tissues at common sites for peripheral IV therapy.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Infiltration of Peripheral IV Therapy Device: The ivWatch Model 400 Not Applicable

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 71 participants
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Diagnostic
Study Start Date : February 2014
Actual Primary Completion Date : February 2014
Actual Study Completion Date : February 2014

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Infiltrated Tissue
The ivWatch Model 400 monitored an IV site during the infiltration of 10 mL of isotonic saline solution. IV sites were placed in the forearm and the dorsal aspect of the hand. The rate of the infiltration ranged between 5 mL/hr to 150 mL/hr.
Device: The ivWatch Model 400
The ivWatch Model 400 monitored the site during the course of the infiltration and issued red and/or yellow notifications if an infiltration was detected.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Red Notification Sensitivity to Infiltrated Tissues [ Time Frame: After each participant has been infiltrated, an expected average of 1 hour ]
    The ratio of the number of infiltrated IV sites where the ivWatch Model 400 device issued a red notification to the total number of infiltrated IV sites in the study. All infiltrations were limited to 10 mL of isotonic saline solution.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Yellow Notification Sensitivity to Infiltrated Tissues [ Time Frame: After each participant has been infiltrated, an expected average of 1 hour ]
    The ratio of the number of infiltrated IV sites where the ivWatch Model 400 device issued a yellow notification to the total number of infiltrated IV sites in the study. All infiltrations were limited to 10 mL of isotonic saline solution.

  2. Infiltrated Volume When Red Notification Issued [ Time Frame: After each participant has been infiltrated, an expected average of 1 hour ]
    The amount of infiltrated isotonic saline solution when the red notification was issued by the ivWatch Model 400 device.

  3. Infiltrated Volume When Yellow Notification Issued [ Time Frame: After each participant has been infiltrated, an expected average of 1 hour ]
    The amount of infiltrated isotonic saline solution when the yellow notification was issued by the ivWatch Model 400 device.

  4. Significant Skin Irritation or Disruption to Skin Integrity [ Time Frame: After each participant has been infiltrated, an expected average of 1 hour ]
    The number of IV sites that indicated significant skin irritation or disruption to skin integrity assessed at the end of the study.
