Time Timer Original Visual Timer

Clinically Proven

A study conducted by Tara McCurdie, Varuna Prakash, and Patricia Trbovich at Healthcare Human Factors, Techna Institute, and University Health Network found that using a visual timer significantly reduced errors during an IV push.

"Prior to starting an IV push, the nurse is required to set the visual timer to the prescribed delivery time (e.g., 10 minutes). The timer counts down by reducing the visible colour block until zero, without an audible alarm or distraction. This low-cost solution was intended to provide a quick and intuitive way of keeping track of medication delivery time, even if the nurse is interrupted."
