German term or phrase: unbelüftet leerlaufen
"Zudem erhöhe er die Sicherheit beim Zumischen von Medikamenten für den Anwender und läuft unbelüftet leer – ein Sicherheitsplus im heute so hektischen Klinikalltag."

This is from a text about a company which produces IV solutions. I'm not sure how to translate "läuft unbelüftet leer" here and would appreciate any suggestions from technical bods.

Many thanks

neutral  muttersprachler: The idea is that in contrast to a rigid bottle the flexible container needs no inflow of air to keep the flow going on.
