B. Braun Announces Upgraded Ambulatory and Pain Management Pump - The Curlin 6000 CMS(TM) - at AACN CHICAGO--(Business Wire)-- B. Braun Medical Inc., a global leader in innovative healthcare products and services, announces the launch of the Curlin 6000 CMS(TM), made possible through its distribution agreement with Curlin Medical Inc. The Curlin 6000 CMS(TM) ambulatory electronic infusion system, which revolutionizes reliable, smart infusion technology with multi-therapy applications, will be presented at The American Association of Critical-Care Nurses' (AACN) National Teaching Institute & Critical Care Exhibition being held May 6-8 in Chicago (Booth #3246). The Curlin 6000 CMS(TM) is a comprehensive product that incorporates a convenient PCA pump with both PC and PDA connectivity, and state-of-the-art CMS (Clinical Management System) software. The system is an upgrade on the 4000 series and comes equipped with Information On Demand (IOD) technology and is capable of delivering IV therapy using syringes, bottles or bags. For added flexibility in hospital settings, the Curlin 6000 CMS(TM) offers multiple therapy modes beyond PCA, including TPN with ramp/taper, continuous and intermittent infusions in addition to PCA and epidural modes. Adding to the features of the Curlin(TM) Pain Management System, the Curlin 6000 CMS(TM) has built-in safety features; such as integral free flow protection from upstream occlusion detection and programmable medication limits. It also possesses a larger color screen making it easier to read. The verification and confirmation of dose changes before implementation reduces the risk of programming errors and improves infusion outcomes for patient safety. "We're pleased to bring the Curlin 6000 CMS(TM) to our customers and anticipate even more beneficial results for patients with the 6000 series as customers are finding it to be an easy-to-use and extremely reliable system," said Gale White, Vice President for Infusion Systems at B. Braun Medical Inc. "Additionally, the launch of this upgraded system aligns well with our overall business strategy to provide our customers with the pain management solutions to improve patient safety and care. With many hospitals increasing use of sedation protocols, the compact size and lockbox capability fit in well with these therapy needs." While the Curlin 6000 CMS is primarily useful for hospital pain management teams, it also provides advantages for oncology, outpatient clinics, hospices and home infusions. The system provides the highest standard of medication safety, reducing therapy interruptions and catheter line complications as well as improving flow accuracy. Additionally, the Curlin 6000 CMS(TM) is helpful not only in drug administration, but also in event monitoring. The system gives healthcare professionals the ability to retrieve detailed, data rich reports based on the events stored in its log file. The report can indicate events, tampering or incorrect pump settings. About B. Braun B.
