MUH Smart Pump

Mayo University Hospital and Children’s Health Ireland pilot a ‘Paediatric Smart Pump’

Mayo University Hospital (MUH) has worked with Children’s Health Ireland (CHI) to introduce use of the CHI paediatric smart pump system to the hospital. A smart pump is an infusion device which uses specific software and a drug library to deliver carefully controlled amounts of medication to a patient through a drip. This system for medication delivery is designed to reduce errors and standardise how medications are prepared and delivered.
