Carefusion Alaris 8100 Features

The BD CareFusion Alaris 8100 Pump module is designed for the delivery of fluids, medications, blood, and blood products using continuous or intermittent delivery for adult, pediatric or neonatal patients. Infusion delivery can occur via clinically acceptable routes of administration (e.g., intravenous, intra-arterial, subcutaneous, epidural, enteral, or irrigation of fluid spaces).

Clinicians can attach up to four pump modules to a single Point of Care (PC) unit allowing four different infusions. The CareFusion pump modules can be attached to either side of the PC unit to create the desired configuration.

The CareFusion Alaris Cardinal 8100 Pump module supports the Guardrails® Suite MX software. This software helps to reduce the risk of medication errors by providing a test of reasonableness before the initiation of therapy.
