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.
