    Pump programming errors that occur when administering intravenous medication and fluid therapies often present grave consequences for the patient, which may result in the disruption of therapeutic regimen, over- or under-dosing leading to loss of intended therapeutic effect, debilitating injury, or even death. Many components are necessary for developing an organizational infrastructure that promotes safe patient care through the application of smart infusion pump technology and utilization of pump generated data. Listen as Dan Degnan and Dawn Berndt discuss what makes smart pumps so smart and the data that can save your patient’s life.
