  • Publication number: 20200280608
    Abstract: A medical device controller operating in conjunction with a medical device determines one or more current versions of executable code associated with one or more processors in a medical device. Medical devices may include infusion pumps, other patient treatment devices as well as vital signs monitors. The medical device controller determines one or more current versions of executable code and configuration information associated with the one or more processors in the medical device. The medical device controller further determines which of the processors in the medical device require updated executable code, and which of the processors in the medical device require updated configuration information. The medical device controller distributes to the medical device as required at least one of the updated executable code and the updated configuration information. The medical device deploys the distributed updates, and activates the updates at a clinically appropriate time.

  • Publication number: 20200101220
    Abstract: An infusion device providing an in-progress infusion of at least one of a drug or a fluid consistent with one or more parameters of a first care area in a hospital can be transitioned to a second care area of the hospital. Details of the in-progress infusion can be compared against one or more second parameters defined for the second care area, and a compatibility determination can be made between the in-progress infusion and the one or more second parameters defined for the seconds care area. A handling mode of the in-progress infusion in the second care area can be selected based on the compatibility determination, and the in-progress infusion can be resolved consistent with the selected handling mode. Related apparatus, systems, techniques and articles are also described.

  • Publication number: 20190328962
    Abstract: A method that includes receiving, in a medication delivery module, a command to start a medication delivery from a first control module coupled to the medication delivery module, is provided. The command to start the medication delivery is based on clinical information received at the first control module. The method includes recording, in a memory of the medication delivery module, an update of the medication delivery, receiving an indication that the medication delivery module was decoupled from the first control module, and receiving an indication that the medication delivery module has become coupled with a second control module. The method also includes communicating, in response, with the second control module, to update the clinical information. A system and a non-transitory, computer readable medium storing instructions to perform the above method are also provided.

  • Patent number: 9904765
    Abstract: A medical device operates in conjunction with a medical device controller. The medical device can include a low-power processor that monitors the states of the medical device. The low-power processor can determine to wake data processors and memory in the medical device based on the states. The data processors can further determine the current versions of executable code and configuration information associated with the data processors by polling a network server or a medical device controller to determine whether at least one update to the current versions is available. If an update is available, the medical device can receive the at least one update from the network server or medical device controller, and deploy it to the appropriate data processor. After deployment the medical device controller can activate the at least one update at a clinically appropriate time.
