Fresenius Kabi has put a lot of thought into the challenges that nurse anesthetists face when it comes to IV pumps and infusion therapy, and that’s reflected in the design of our Ivenix pump.
When nurse anesthetists are administering medications, the last thing to worry about should be the IV pump. There are so many other things that require your constant attention and worrying about whether the roller clamp has drifted, and the dosage being off shouldn’t be one of them. The infusion pump should be so easy to manage that once the details about the administration are entered into the pump, nurses can focus on their patients and less on mechanics. Greater confidence that the medication is being delivered as expected is needed, especially when the patient needs to be moved to another department
The Ivenix Infusion System has been designed so that a nurse anesthetists can provide care with confidence in the infusion technology. It’s not only easy to use, but is also efficient, safe and accurate.
Ease of use. The Ivenix administration set uses a dial to set flow rate when infusing as a gravity set. An anesthesia professional can set it up as a gravity set initially and then add the pump later. Programming the infusion is intuitive, with guided workflows and a full-color screen that’s easy-to-read, even amidst the chaos of a busy hospital. And once the anesthesia professional has finished programming the infusion, putting it in standby mode means that, once the patient is prepped and ready for medication, all the caregiver needs to do is take the pump out of standby and press “start.” In standby mode, there are no alarms going off to tell nurses what they already know — that the IV pump is not yet administering medication — which is one less distraction to needlessly draw nurse’s attention away from matters that truly need it.
Safe and accurate.The system automatically detects air bubbles greater than 50 microliters and is able to provide precise, consistent delivery of drugs, regardless of the bag height, drug viscosity or pressure. In fact, you can move the pump from a pole to a bed and travel with the patient, all while continuing to deliver the required dosage of medication accurately. There’s no need to raise or lower the primary bag to deliver a piggyback.
If you access the anesthesiology mode, the Ivenix Infusion System will limit alarms to minimizing nuisances. And when you do need information on how an infusion is progressing, it’s not just easy to see on the pump itself. Ivenix enables mobile views of actively running infusions, which lets you check in on the patient no matter where you’re located and enables cross-team collaboration.
If you’re attending AANA this year, we do hope you’ll come by the Fresenius Kabi booth (#1030) to get a hands-on demonstration of the Ivenix Infusion System.
Turn the dials, try the simple touchscreen and run it through its paces. We’re eager to show you what the future of infusion technology looks like today.
