Smiths Medical received FDA clearance for its CADD-Solis VIP ambulatory infusion system, a smart pump and accompanying software that prevents errors in medication delivery for both adult and pediatric patients. Predefined limits are set on the pump so that operators that load drugs and set delivery parameters don’t accidentally go beyond those limits due to dose misinterpretations and keypad programming errors. More from Smiths Medical:
Administrator software is a Windows® based application used by select staff members to create and manage the standardized pump protocols. The application is used to securely and accurately program the CADD®-Solis VIP pump saving Pharmacist and Nursing time in manually programming the infusion pump. Infusion data is collected for additional pump documentation, reporting and CQI data analysis.
The CADD®-Solis VIP system includes five delivery modes: Continuous, Intermittent, Taper, PCA (Patient Controlled Analgesia) and Step. This allows the system to be used for a variety of therapies including TPN (Total Parenteral Nutrition), chemotherapy, antibiotics, hydration, pain management, and Intravenous / Subcutaneous Immunoglobulin infusions for adult and pediatric patients. The pump’s user interface is patient focused and displays therapy information in an easy-to-understand format to help reduce training time. The medication safety software allows clinicians to download therapy information directly from their personal computer into the pump as well as view reports on infusion data and delivery history for quick and easy therapy assessment and continuous quality improvement.
