Nurses encountering frequent alarms often suffer from alarm fatigue: desensitisation to patient alarms.
For some unstable patients, missed inotrope transitions are risky, as shown in a recent study.1 To help reduce risk, you can visualise relays of critical infusions and keep complete control of the process.
Some fragile patients need constant fluid assessment. This is challenging when delivering multiple medications or nutrients simultaneously. An automatic chart based on delivered medication captures information electronically or subsequently be printed.
You can see all IV infusion data centrally. You will see all infusion lines on a central screen, including events and alarms; and recognise syringe and volumetric pumps at a glance. Additionally, you can easily identify critical infusions, such as inotropes, enteral and sedatives. Alaris Infusion Central completes your PDMS (Patient Data Management System) by using knowledge of what is happening now to help you decide what to do next.
Alaris Infusion Central fosters a more efficient patient care process where nurses can be at the right place at the right time for their patients. With Alaris Infusion Central you can:
