The Unity Point Health System - Des Moines uses Hospira Plum 360 pumps to deliver IV medications to adult and pediatric patients. These pumps feature:
- An air management system that doesn't require you to disconnect the IV tubing from the patient to fix an air issue.
- A unique way of delivering a primary and secondary infusion on one IV pump - the secondary line connects directly to the tubing cassette. There is no need to raise or lower IV fluid/medication containers - the pump can differentiate between the primary and secondary infusion. The pump can also deliver two compatible medications at different rates...through the same IV line.
