Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 50 participants
Allocation: N/A
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Official Title: A Study to Assess the Functionality of Pro-IV's IMMAGES Infusion System in Patients Hospitalized in Bait Balev, Receiving Intravenous Therapy
Study Start Date : November 2013
Estimated Primary Completion Date : April 2014
Estimated Study Completion Date : April 2014

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: sentinel arm
all patients will be recieving Iv therapy by using the sentinel controller, a device that is mounted on the IV administration set.
Device: Sentinel

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Successful operation of IMMAGES defined by patient receiving the prescribed IV medication using the IMMAGES system , openning of the controller valve including using the smartphone application and the management software [ Time Frame: as long as the patient is reciving the IV prescribed medication, and no longer than 10 days ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. - Detection of medical errors by IMMAGES [ Time Frame: up to 5 minutes from activating the controller on the IV line ]
    If there is an error related to administration of wrong drug. to the wrong patient , on the wrong timing - the valve of the controller will not open , and the IV line will stay closed, and the patient will not get the wrong drug.
