System solutions supporting the whole process
Antiinfective therapy is a crucial part of the infusion therapy. The wide range of drugs and possibilities of use bears different risks as well for patients as for healthcare professionals. The consequences of those risks on the health of the individual are often underestimated and may lead to significant costs for the hospital.
Within the antiinfective therapy several treatments are possible. Depending on the individual infection of the patient, the appropriate medication and treatment regime has to be determined for the particular prescription.
To assist you in this process B. Braun developed programming and documentation systems to work out the particular treatment. Additionally, B. Braun offers you ready-to-use IV solutions to support the daily routine.
Antibiotics are among the most frequently used drugs in intensive care patients, and account for a substantial proportion of drug expenditure in ICUs. Single medical devices and associated equipment require more time, items and manipulations resulting in higher costs, which could result in administration errors as well as microbial contamination. The use of ready-to-use containers provides the best cost-efficacy administering drugs and avoids medication errors, too.
To establish an access to the patient’s venous system several types of devices are required. Based on the patient condition and solution to be administered, the infusion is mainly achieved by using a venous access.
To enable improved delivery of the medication to the patient, B. Braun provides suitable product solutions with protective features around the access route.

Lots of drugs are not available in a ready-to-use format and have to be diluted, reconstituted or admixed with others to suit patients` therapeutic needs. During drug preparation and transportation healthcare workers have to ensure that no spillages occure.
To provide support for healthcare workers B. Braun serves a wide product range to improve the admixture process and the transportation.
