Davies Veterinary Specialists (DVS) has seen working practices transformed following installation of 50 next-generation infusion pumps from the B Braun Space Infusion System.
The pumps have a specifically designed “drug library” – a unique feature that monitors dose range and limit to prevent accidental overdose.
Already proven successful in treating human patients, the system means animals can continue to receive safe levels of drugs and fluids whether having procedures such as ultrasound, being monitored in the intensive care unit, being prepared for surgery or in theatre itself.
DVS managing director Clive Elwood said: “I believe we are the first veterinary practice in the UK with the infusion pumps installed, so this is a very exciting time for us.
“The new system offers more flexibility in our practice and supports the team in providing the highest level of specialist care – something we pride ourselves on at DVS.”
B Braun Medical, which already supplies medical devices and services to both the public and private health care sectors, is now developing veterinary products as part of the B Braun VetCare portfolio.
