Designing an Infusion System for You

The Center for Devices and Radiological Health, the branch of the U.S Food and Drug Administration responsible for the premarket review of all medical devices, considers human factors testing a valuable component of medical device development to improve the usability and minimize use errors.

So do we.

With the goal of improving patient outcomes, we collaborated with experts at Healthcare Human Factors— one of the largest organizations of its kind in the world— to build a better pump. In the caring hands of healthcare professionals who know what to look for in an infusion pump and understand what’s needed for optimum patient care, our Infusomat® Space Pump underwent testing by100 different clinicians during multiple HF testing sessions. We went back to work after we listened to what the registered, practicing nurses and anesthesiologists had to say after they evaluated the Infusomat Space Pump. The result was an optimized pump designed to meet your needs and the demands of 21st century healthcare.

The Infusomat Space pump was one of the first infusion pumps to go through the FDA’s newest infusion pump requirements. The extensive human factors testing resulted in improved navigation and additional safety features, such as prompts to remind clinicians to check IV bag height and clamp IV lines when performing secondary infusions.

At B. Braun, we believe in going the extra mile to help clinicians and health care facilities achieve positive outcomes for patients.
