Medrad's wireless Continuum MR Infusion System receives FDA 510(k) clearance

Medrad : 12 August, 2008  (New Product)
Medrad's wireless version of its Continuum MR Infusion System has received US Food and Drug Administration 510(k) clearance.
The new Continuum Wireless MR Infusion System enables the clinician to control a patient’s medication infusion during a magnetic resonance (MR) procedure from both inside and outside the scan room. When changes are needed, including flow rate, bolus, or to start or stop the infusion altogether, clinicians can control these parameters without interrupting the MRI scan with a new wireless remote display featuring a colour touch screen. The option will increase workflow efficiencies and throughput while enhancing clinician confidence by enabling easy selection from up to nine IV stands, minimising scan interruptions due to infusion changes and displaying all infusion parameters.

Joe Havrilla, sr vice president, Medrad MR “The Continuum Wireless is designed to produce efficiency and boost throughput in MRI, but it also builds confidence in the patient care staff that control of a patient’s medication is always nearby, especially when implemented for applications like paediatric sedation,” said Joe Havrilla, senior vice president, Medrad MR Business Unit.

Continuum Wireless joins the Veris MR Monitor as the second product to utilise Medrad’s Certo MR Wireless Network.

The original Continuum MR Infusion System was introduced in 2002 as the first infusion system designed for the harsh electro-magnetic environment in MR. Medrad has designed an upgrade path to wireless for current Continuum users.
