About the Medfusion 4000

Syringe pumps are used to deliver small doses of medication from a variety of syringe sizes in acute care settings. The Medfusion 4000 syringe pump represents the next-generation advancement of the popular Medfusion 3500, which is widely recognized for its accurate medication delivery to patients. The Medfusion 4000 is also recognized for accurate delivery in critical care units including neonatal and pediatric intensive care. This system is designed to help prevent medication errors and allow health care providers to send and receive medication delivery information more efficiently. This syringe pump is commonly knowns for being safe, simple, and smart.


The Medfusion 4000 is safe to use for neonatal and pediatric patients. It continues to be the reliable choice for the country’s best children’s hospitals. This infusion syringe pump is used by most hospitals on the U.S. News and World Report Children’s Hospital Honor Roll. This pump delivers care as quickly and confidenly as you do. The syringe infusion system promotes the best practices in a clinical care as recommended by the top hospitals. With delivery rates as low as 0.01 mL/hr and up to 1130 mL/hr the pump is capable of infusing low flow rates even with large syringes.


This device is programmed with PharmGuard Server Software to allow robust reporting capabilities. Since the pump connects wirelessly to the PharmGuard Server, it’s easily reprogrammable including drug libraries and firmware updates without physically handling the pumps. The software closes the CQI loop by providing customizable and actionable reports for promoting improved patient outcomes. With CQI reproting you can ensure that you are capturing and managing data from your pumps reports.


The PharmGuard Medication Saftey Software helps reduce pump programming errors as well as associated adverse drug events by encouraging the use of drug libraries. These drug libraries can be programmed with hard and soft limits to reduce even more programming errors. A 2006 study found that on average each ADE incidnet resulted in $8,750 of additional care costs totaling $3.5 billion a year for drug related injuries occuring in hospitals in the united states. The Model 4000 pump encourages simultaneous programmable hard and soft limits for dose, weight, and time for all modes of delivery.
