GLOSSARY ENTRY (DERIVED FROM QUESTION BELOW)
French term or phrase:
...avec l'ensemble du dispositif de perfusion continue a faible debit
...with the continuous drip apparatus at a low flow level.
This sentence is from a text about the risk of infection from catheterisation and the prevention of it. It is part of the guidelines for prevention of infection in haemodialysis:
"Changer les domes et les dispositifs de perfusion controlee toutes les 4 jours, avec l'ensemble du dispositif de perfusion continue a faible debit."
It is the last part of the sentence I am having trouble with. Any ideas?? HTH Nick
