A disposable electronically controlled infusion pump system includes at least one disposable infusion container and at least one disposable electronically controlled medication pumping system. The at least one disposable infusion container is configured to contain infusion fluid. The at least one disposable electronically controlled medication pumping system is fluidly connected to the at least one disposable infusion container. The disposable electronically controlled medication pumping system includes an infusion channel, a disposable electronically controlled micropump, and valves, but may further include a microprocessor, a memory, a battery or power receiver configured to wirelessly receive power, a wireless communication device, and other components. The memory is in electronic communication with the microprocessor. The wireless communication device is configured to receive a wireless signal which wirelessly controls the disposable electronically controlled medication pumping system. The disposable electronically controlled micropump is configured to pump the infusion fluid through the infusion channel. The valves are connected to the infusion channel.


An infusion pump system and method with multiple drug library editor source capability including: an infusion pump system having a first drug library editor operable to generate a first drug library; a second drug library editor operable to generate a second drug library; and an infusion pump operable to connect to either one of the first drug library editor and the second drug library editor, the infusion pump having an operational drug library being one of the first drug library received from the first drug library editor and the second drug library received from the second drug library editor. The first drug library editor is one of a dedicated drug library editor and an enterprise drug library editor, and the second drug library editor is the other of the one of the dedicated drug library editor and the enterprise drug library editor.

A medication management system (MMS) includes a medication management unit (MMU) associated with a medical device. The MMU downloads a medication order to the medical device only if information from a first input matches information from a second input. The medical device receives delivery information only from the MMU. The medication order is performed only after delivery data validation. The MMU also determines drug-drug incompatibility. The MMU can modulate (start, stop, and dynamically adjust) medication order performance. The medical device wirelessly receives a patient ID to automatically associate with the patient. During delivery, the medical device caches an updated drug library to replace an existing one. The medical device displays a patient picture for validation. The MMU evaluates the performance of medical devices and caregivers based medical device feedback. The MMU adjusts the output of medical device information conveyed to a caregiver.

Methods and systems for an injection system are provided. An example injection system includes a container for a pharmaceutical that is sealed at a proximal end with a plunger having a pushing surface for engaging an inner surface of the hollow body. A plunger rod extends axially from the proximal end of the container and is covered with a plunger rod cover. Removal of the cover activates the system and allows for delivery of the pharmaceutical product from the container by advancing the plunger within the container towards the seal.

A system and method for providing updates to medical devices is disclosed. In one example, the medical devices are configured to pull update files in response to the reception of an update message from a server. Once the update files are downloaded by a medical device, the update files can be installed. While the medical device pulls the update files, the medical device can continue with its normal operation. If desired, a user can select which medical devices should be updated, based on any desired factors, such as the physical location of the device, the model of the device, the type of device, and the way the device is being used.

An infusion system to provide concurrent TPN/insulin infusion including: a fluid administration set having a primary line in fluid communication with the TPN source, a secondary line in fluid communication with the insulin source, and a common outlet line; a pump operable to removably receive the fluid administration set, the pump being operable to concurrently move the TPN solution through the primary line in response to a TPN solution flow rate signal and the insulin solution through the secondary line in response to an insulin solution flow rate signal; and a flow controller operable to provide the TPN solution flow rate signal and the insulin solution flow rate signal to the pump. The flow controller is further operable to vary the TPN solution flow rate signal and the insulin solution flow rate signal to vary a ratio of TPN solution to insulin solution provided to the common outlet line.


Aspects of the present disclosure provide systems, devices, and methods for delivering substances such as fluids, solutions, medications, and drugs to patients using infusion devices having a set of advanced features. These advanced features include aspects related to the programming of infusion devices, the configuration of infusion sequences performed by the infusion devices, and the interconnection of multiple infusion devices for interoperation during an infusion having a sequence of infusion steps.
