A comprehensive drug library is critical for the effective and safe use of any smart infusion system.

Extract:

A smart infusion system is designed to minimize programming errors and the related risk of patient harm. Each facility develops a customized infusion system drug library, which includes dosing ranges and other safety limits for individual drugs. During infusion programming the pump checks the entries against the drug library and alerts the clinician when a drug library limit is exceeded, preventing the patient from receiving an incorrectly programmed infusion.
