Medical Shipment Offers Distributed Infusion Pumps to Enhance Clinical Education
Across healthcare simulation, infusion pumps play an important role in the training of learners and professionals alike. They can be used to assess knowledge, clinical simulation performance, and confidence, helping ensure that each learner is prepared for real-life scenarios upon entering the field. As such, infusion pumps are one of the many medical supplies offered by the premium supplier, Medical Shipment. This HealthySimulation.com article specifically focuses on the features and benefits of the BD Alaris infusion systems, while highlighting several other pumps available through this distributor.
Overall, the BD Alaris infusion systems, infusion software, infusion system therapies, and IV therapy sets and accessories provided by Medical Shipment can help pharmacy, nursing and other departments address diverse infusion needs. These solutions offer exceptional versatility as Alaris infusion systems work independently and together to accurately deliver infusions while helping protect each patient. With large volume pump (LVP), syringe, and PCA modalities on one platform, the systems help users streamline workflow and manage infusion data across all care areas.
An “all-in-one” solution, Alaris provides everything users need to collect, interpret and respond to IV medication data captured at the point of care. Using wireless data set to transfer and Guardrails suite MX software alerts, users can quickly download data for rapid cycle improvement. The hospital’s latest drug and IV therapy delivery parameters can be uploaded just as easily, helping to ensure clinicians always have the most up-to-date drug library.
As for Alaris Infusion System devices, a combination of hardware and software solutions, the Alaris systems includes the BD Alaris Pump Module, which continuously or intermittently delivers fluids, medications, blood or blood products for adult, pediatric or neonatal patients. The solutions also include the Alaris Auto-ID Module which provides flexible barcoding to input and confirms patient ID, clinician ID, and data, potentially reducing programming errors.

The Alaris EtCO2 Module provides continuous end-tidal respiratory monitoring for general care in all patient care areas including ancillary care areas. Additionally, the Alaris PCA Module provides syringe-based PCA functionality on the Alaris platform for integrated infusion deliveries. Rounding out the list of Alaris solutions, the BD Alaris PC Unit provides modular platform users can build on to customize infusion delivery based on patient needs.
3 Key Nursing Benefits
Exceptional versatility: A common user interface simplifies IV administration by standardizing BD Alaris pump, syringe, and PCA modules on one platform. Respiratory monitoring can be added with the BD Alaris EtCO2 module, allowing the clinician to automatically pause PCA infusions if patients fall below target respiratory levels. The BD Alaris Auto-ID module offers a unique IV barcoding solution that attaches directly to the BD Alaris system.
Increased protection for IV safety: Guardrails suite MX software helps provide the right protection for every Guardrails infusion by double-checking dose and duration, as well as delivery rate, protecting critical infusions like chemotherapy. The wirelessly enabled Guardrails software is available on every device.
Powerful analytics: Guardrails software allows users to convert data into meaningful information, so they can quickly identify opportunities for clinical and operational improvement. With Guardrails CQI Reporter and the BD Knowledge Portal for Infusion Technologies, users have the tools to spot subtle trends, measure the effectiveness of your IV formularies and best practices and continuously optimize patient care.
