Braun Executive Suite.

TPN Manager software incorporates Trissel's Ca/P check to help minimize the risk of precipitation and allows users to create templates to standardize their order format. Also featured are dosing limits to alert and prevent prescribers from ordering doses of ingredients that exceed recommended or safe clinical limits. Since TPN Manager is browser-based, healthcare providers can enter parenteral nutrition orders at the patient's bedside using a tablet computer and electronically transmit those orders directly to pharmacy for authorization. The order then automatically routes to the APEX compounder without the need for transcription.

"The direct communication is designed to help reduce manual programming errors, eliminate transcription errors and expedite patient care," said Jessica Pitt, Product Director, Automated Compounding Systems.

The APEX Compounding System was specifically designed to address the immediate needs of critically ill patients – from neonates to adults – while also meeting the critical needs of pharmacists. Safety, accuracy and efficiency are the key drivers behind its unique design. From its large user interface and 26-lead preassembled sets to its dual-drive filling technology, APEX is designed to facilitate a smoother compounding process.

"With APEX's 26 ports and ability to accurately deliver volumes as low as 0.2 mL, pharmacists now have the opportunity to automate the majority of the compounding process," Pitt said. "APEX is unique as the only automated compounder with the ability to track and verify manual additions. This helps to improve patient safety since ingredients like insulin, a high-alert medication, are frequently added manually to parenteral nutrition orders." 

To reserve an advance appointment to experience the APEX Compounding System with TPN Manager, attendees can visit the APEX Executive Suite Booking Site to secure an individual demo time or visit booth #1323 during the show.
