B. Braun Medical will introduce its Integra Infusion platform at the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses (AACN) National Teaching Institute and Critical Care Exposition - 2014.
Integra Infusion platform is claimed to be the first and only wireless, integrated technology system for IV pump infusion that is IHE certified for all three AutoComplete integration functions, namely auto-programming, auto-documentation and auto-notification.
B.Braun Automation and Infusion Systems marketing director Mike Golebiowski said Integra not only helps clinicians to reduce manual data entry errors and save time by increasing documentation accuracy, but also improves alarm reporting to help prevent alarm fatigue.
"Our fully-integrated INTEGRA™ Infusion platform integrates real-time data, pumps, and reporting seamlessly with integrated partners for system-wide compatibility," Golebiowski added.
"The end result is Synchronized Intelligence™ to help clinicians achieve 100% drug library utilization, minimal medication errors, and reduction in alerts."
Alarm fatigue and patient safety is becoming a major concern for healthcare providers following the extensive use of devices in the healthcare milieu.
In 2013, Emergency Care Research Institute recognized alarm hazards as the number one Health Technology Hazard while the Joint Commission set up a new 2014 National Patient Safety Goal to improve the safety of clinical alarm systems in hospitals.
The American Association of Critical-Care Nurses (AACN) National Teaching Institute and Critical Care Exposition will be held from May 17 to 22, in Denver Colorado, US.
