    Abstract

    Problems occur regularly with intravenous therapy, especially with the flow behavior. A mechanical model can predict which components of intravenous therapy systems introduce non-ideal effects in the flow. This study concentrates on gaining quantitative information of each separate component for intravenous therapy, characterize its non-ideal effects and combine these quantities in one system-level model. The model will help in the development of a mass flow sensor which can be used in a control system for intravenous therapy.
