B. Braun to Showcase its Innovative Synchronized Intelligence™ Infusion Platform at AACN

First and only wireless, integrated infusion technology system for IV pump infusion that is IHE certified for all three AutoCOMPLETE integration functions

Bethlehem, PA - May 11, 2015 - B. Braun Medical Inc. (B.Braun) will showcase its Synchronized Intelligence™ infusion platform with AutoCOMPLETE at the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses (AACN) National Teaching Institute & Critical Care Exposition, May 18th -21st, in San Diego, CA at booth (#1328).

B.Braun’s Synchronized Intelligence™ Infusion Platform offers customers the first and only, wireless integrated technology system for IV pump infusion that is IHE* certified for all three AutoCOMPLETE integration functions, which include auto-programming, auto-documentation and auto-notification. This not only helps clinicians to reduce manual data entry errors and save time by increasing documentation accuracy, but also helps improve reporting to help prevent alarm fatigue.

"Our fully-integrated infusion platform integrates real-time data, pumps, and reporting seamlessly with integrated partners for system-wide compatibility, in an effort to help improve patient outcomes. The end result is Synchronized Intelligence™ to help clinicians achieve 100% drug library utilization, minimize medication errors, and reduce alarm alerts," said Mike Golebiowski, Vice President of Marketing, Automation and Infusion Systems at B.Braun.
