Clinical Nutrition 360 is B. Braun’s innovative, full-service approach to meeting the individualized nutrition admixing needs of patients and customers. Whether through in-house compounding, outsourcing or a combination of both, Clinical Nutrition 360 can help optimize the safe administration of the appropriate parenteral nutrition products.
Central Admixture Pharmacy Services, Inc. (CAPS®)
A market leader in outsourced parenteral nutrition, CAPS is an important component of Clinical Nutrition 360. With 23 regional locations, CAPS offers the largest network of pharmacies that deliver same-day customized compounding for neonates, pediatrics, and adults. Two features of CAPS that will be showcased at ASPEN include:
- CAPSLink™ order entry software, which provides customers with a critical transcription double-check for catching PN ordering errors.
- CAPS’ new standardized Neonatal Starter bag offering with up to 30 days Beyond Use Dating.
APEX™ Micro Compounder (coming soon)
Used in conjunction with its own clinical support software TPN Manager with Trissel’s™ Ca/P Safety Check Software, APEX is designed to outperform existing compounders — from its larger, brighter screen, and 26 ports to its dual-drive technology and automatic delivery as low as 0.2 mL. Its user-friendly interface, with cutting-edge software compounds TPN, CRRT and Cardioplegia.
Through its browser-based TPN Manager software, healthcare providers can enter parenteral nutrition orders at the patient’s bedside using an iPad or other tablet computer and electronically transmit those orders directly to the APEX compounder. This direct communication is designed to help reduce manual programming errors, eliminate transcription errors, and expedite patient care.
The PINNACLE® TPN Management System
This system streamlines and manages all aspects of the TPN process, improving efficiency and safety when compounding in the pharmacy. Also being featured will be the enhanced, easy-to-use PINNACLE TPN Manager Software, which allows pharmacists to enter orders remotely using iPads.
Sterile Water for Injection USP in 2L and 3L flexible containers, 70% Dextrose for Injection USP in 2L flexible containers and Nutrilipid 20% (I.V. fat emulsion).
Exposure to DEHP and PVC has been a growing concern for healthcare facilities around the world. B. Braun was the first medical device manufacturer to remove these toxic materials from many products, and today is the only supplier that offers a full line of solution containers that are not made with DEHP, PVC, or natural rubber latex. These pharmacy bulk package products are used with B. Braun’s PINNACLE TPN Management System and other automated compounding devices.
B. Braun meets both basic and specialty nutrition needs, including some parenteral nutrition industry firsts such as TrophAmine® (10% amino acid injection), HepatAmine® (8% amino acid injection) and ProcalAmine® (3% amino acid and 3% glycerin injection with electrolytes).
