A patient care system is disclosed that includes a medical device such as an infusion pump. The medical device generates a data message containing information such as the status of the therapy being delivered, operating data or both. An alarm generating system assesses the data message from the pump and generates an alarm message if certain conditions established by a first set of rules are met. The alarm message is assessed according to a second set of rules as to whether to suppress the alarm message. The data message contains a required input for both the first and second algorithms. A dispatching system is adapted to forward the alarm message to an alarm destination according to a third set of rules. The alarm destination expresses an alarm upon receipt of the alarm message.


A system and method for monitoring and delivering medication to a patient. The system includes a controller that has a control algorithm and a closed loop control that monitors the control algorithm. A sensor is in communication with the controller and monitors a medical condition. A rule based application in the controller receives data from the sensor and the closed loop control and compares the data to predetermined medical information to determine the risk of automation of therapy to the patient. A system monitor is also in communication with the controller to monitor system, remote system, and network activity and conditions. The controller then provides a predetermined risk threshold where below the predetermined risk threshold automated closed loop medication therapy is provided. If the predetermined risk threshold is met or exceeded, automated therapy adjustments may not occur and user/clinician intervention is requested.


An infusion system and pump with configurable closed loop delivery rate catch-up including an infusion system having a medication management unit and a medical device. The medication management unit has programming code to: provide a graphical user interface for modifying a drug library; receive a catch-up rate factor; update the drug library with the catch-up rate factor; and transmit the updated drug library to the medical device. The medical device has programming code to: receive the updated drug library; receive a desired infusion rate; calculate expected accumulated infusion volume from the desired infusion rate; request delivery of the infusion at the desired infusion rate; determine actual accumulated infusion volume at a particular time; increase the infusion rate by the catch-up rate factor to generate a catch-up infusion rate when at the particular time the actual accumulated infusion volume is less than expected; and request infusion at the catch-up infusion rate.

The presently disclosed subject matter relates to pharmaceutical compositions comprising dexmedetomidine or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof wherein the composition is formulated as a liquid for parenteral administration to a subject, and wherein the composition is disposed within a sealed container as a premixture. The pharmaceutical compositions can be used, for example, in perioperative care of a patient or for sedation.

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.


Infusion fluid is flowed through a fluid delivery line of an infusion system. Optical signals having different wavelengths are transmitted through the fluid delivery line. The transmitted optical signals having the different wavelengths are received. At least one processor determines whether air or infusion fluid is disposed in the fluid delivery line based on the received optical signals having the different wavelengths.


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 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.
