Evaluation: B. Braun Infusomat Space Infusion Pump (First Generation)
September 1, 2015 | Evaluations & Guidance
The Infusomat Space is small and lightweight, and allows alarm priority to be set by drug. However, it has several major problems; these include the potential for uncontrolled flow, which leads us to recommend that this device be used only with an administration set containing an antisiphon valve (ASV). In addition, this pump is not easy to use. Log analysis is impractical, and the pump lacks bidirectional wireless, both of which are important for achieving the level of safety expected. These key factors resulted in our one-star rating.
