A Powder Dosing Valve (Dosimat) is a device that can measure the amount of medicine needed to be administered for a patient in a medical setting. The Dosimat system was initially designed and created for the United States Navy Seals. This system has been modified and adapted for use in a variety of environments. It is a piston-style device that is used to deliver the medicine into a patient’s body. It is one of the most reliable medical devices that has come out of the healthcare industry and is very useful to physicians, nurses, pharmacists, and other healthcare professionals. It makes it easier for them to administer the proper dosage.
The doormat system also creates a safety factor for the physician and the nurse. If the system were not available, the physician or the nurse may have to rely on their memory or good judgment when deciding how much medication should be administered.
