Fresenius Kabi at APHON in West Palm Beach — Pay us a visit to experience infusion with less confusion
The Ivenix and Fresenius Kabi Team
From September 15-17, the 46th Annual Conference for the Association of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Nurses (APHON) takes place in West Palm Beach Florida, along with a robust virtual presence accessible from anywhere in the world. Fresenius Kabi will be there to share with nurses the experience of infusion with less confusion.
The Ivenix Infusion System was designed from the ground up to be safe, accurate and efficient. With this integrated system, nurses can administer medications with confidence that the full dosage will be correctly delivered, regardless of bag height or whether the patient is stationary or being moved. The infusion pump allows you to work without being constantly distracted by excessive nuisance alarms. The pump is designed to alarm about infusion status that truly merits your attention.
As a nurse, your first concern is your patient, as is everyone’s safety, especially while administering oncology medicines that are potentially toxic or hazardous. You don’t want to spill them on you, nor do you want them to drip onto the floor or other surfaces.
With the Ivenix Infusion System, you don’t have to break the line to open the tubing to remove air. Instead, just hit a button on the pump, and it empties the air into a syringe or bag on the secondary port. This limits the danger of exposure to medications.
Our System delivers intermittent medications until empty. Medications are not left in the bag, so you can rest assured that the patient gets exactly what is prescribed, which is especially important in oncology.
Both the primary and the secondary infusions are controlled. You don’t need to rely on gravity for the flow of the secondary medication, the pump keeps the infusion rate constant at any bag height. You can even move the pump from a pole to a bed for travel, and the pump continues to pump consistently so you can move your patient without worrying about the IV.
If in a busy hospital environment, you forget to release the roller clamp and stop the IV from proceeding, the system will alert you. Thoughtful control about the alarms we build into our system. We know that nuisance alarms can add unnecessary stress to an already extremely stressful job. But this one is important because you don’t want to come back to the patient half an hour later only to find the infusion hasn’t even started.
All this attention to accuracy, reliability and consistency means you can be highly efficient with chair turns. The administration is already a lot for children to handle, and it’s even worse if they discover they must stay longer than expected or even come back another day. You’re in much better shape to treat every patient who comes through the door.
The Ivenix Infusion System makes programming an infusion intuitive, with a full-color, easy-to-read screen that guides infusion setup workflows. You can set up the infusion, place it in standby mode, and when the child is prepped and ready, just press start to begin administration. Ivenix doesn’t bother you with alarms about system standby either. Why sound a constant ping to tell you something that you already know?
If you are attending APHON this year, come by the Fresenius Kabi booth #714. We’d love for you to experience first-hand infusion with less confusion.
