Smiths Medical received FDA clearance for its Medfusion 4000 wireless syringe infusion pump. Like its predecessor, the Medfusion 3500, the new model runs Smiths’ proprietary PharmGuard software that allows for easy management of infusion data and provides safety parameters to prevent incorrect dosing during anesthesia or in critical care areas. The new model provides wireless connectivity (802.11b/g) so that pump data can be managed remotely without having another wire in the OR.
Medfusion® 4000 Syringe Infusion Pump with PharmGuard® Medication Safety Software – a Smart infusion pump that now has wireless (802.11b/g) and wired Ethernet connectivity for efficient drug library, syringe and firmware management, eliminating the need to physically search for pumps and manually update them.
PharmGuard® Toolbox Medication Safety Software – PC software that allows pharmacists to develop drug libraries according to hospital-defined medication dosing best practices and then deploy them to Medfusion® 4000 pumps.
PharmGuard® Server Software – a scalable and upgradeable web-based application that enables the wireless collection, management, and Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI) reporting of patient infusion data to track trends in compliance with medication dosing and clinical best practices.
SureLink™ Remote Support Software – an agent that runs in the background on a hospital’s Windows®-based workstation or server and allows Smiths Medical Customer Support specialists to monitor devices and software, diagnose problems, provide software installation and upgrades, and supply remote support of Smiths Medical products.
