DeviceVue Tablet 3 dots

Find the pump you need, when you need it, without requiring an external tag.

Nurses may spend up to 1 hour per shift searching for equipment.Uncertainty about infusion pump location and status may contribute to staff inefficiency, fleet under-utillization and unnecessary pump purchases.

Baxter's DeviceVue Application, in conjunction with the tag-less location communications embedded in every Spectrum IQ, uses your hospital wireless network and floor plan to map your pump locations and provide insight into whether pumps are infusing with color-coded pump status indicators.

Now hospital staff can easily find the right infusion pumps when they need them, and know whether they are available or in use, helping to improve operational efficiency and maximize clinician time with patients.
