It is difficult to imagine modern medicine without infusion therapy. Regardless of where we look, whether it is drug delivery, nutritional support, fluid administration or blood substitution, IV therapy is an irreplaceable part of the treatment regime. However, this therapy, as with all others, carries associated risks both for the patient and the health care worker. These risks unfortunately are difficult to identify since their consequences are not immediately obvious and hence are often attributed to other sources.
In line with our tradition of sharing expertise, B. Braun aims to increase awareness through open communication as well as supporting our customers through the built in safety of our innovative product systems.
Based on existing clinical evidence, this website summarizes the most common risks in infusion therapy and discusses how B. Braun’s integrated product system can contribute to safer and more efficient workflows.
