Proceedings from the ISMP summit on the use of smart infusion pumps
Guidelines for safe implementation and use

Intravenous infusion pumps are used to deliver parenteral medications at precise rates or in specific amounts. This technology is not new, but for several years, infusion pumps have been manufactured with software that can alert users to potential errors. The pumps with this additional software are often referred to as “smart pumps” or “intelligent infusion devices.” This software allows an organization to create a library of medications that provides medication.
