Smiths Medical Launches Upgraded Infusion Syringe Pump Software

March 02, 2015

Smiths Medical, a global medical device manufacturer, has just launched version two of its PharmGuard® server software (PGS) for use with Medfusion® 4000 wireless infusion pumps. The medication safety software enables health care providers to simultaneously program hard and soft limits for dose, weight, time, and delivery modes. Clinicians are then alerted when the limits are exceeded.

The latest version of this software allows hospitals to input area specific configurations for each of their specialty infusion pumps. Devices can now be grouped by care area and location. They can also be assigned to multiple drug libraries, multiple devices, and different firmware.

The upgrade includes additional device reports that provide customizable data and drill-down capabilities, making cross-facility and library reporting easier. The new reports are also deliverable by email for convenience and efficiency. Through the new server software, hospitals will be able to manage multiple specialty infusion devices from a single platform.

Smiths Medical’s latest system upgrade has made it easier for hospitals, hospital groups, and integrated delivery networks (IDNs) to maximize their IT investments for specialty infusion pumps while ensuring an increase in overall quality in patient care. AIV is committed to providing top-quality IV pump parts, accessories and repair services for leading infusion pump manufacturers including Smiths Medical.
