Safety factors in the remote control of infusion devices
We have been using computer driven injections in surgery for many years to the benefit of more than thousand patients. Along these years we accumulated extensive experience in remote controlled infusion pumps. Today we have solved many communication problems. Despite the attention and care we brought in our software developments we still meet with some problems.
