Nurses are critical to patient care. A time-and-motion study showed that nearly 40% of nurses’ time is spent at the nurse station versus only about 30% in the patient room.1 Sigma Spectrum Infusion System with auto-documentation helps you spend time where it matters most.
Sigma Spectrum Infusion System can integrate with a hospital’s electronic medical record (EMR) to allow infusion data to be charted into the patient’s medical record electronically. This can help allow nurses to spend more time on patient care and less time documenting.

Drug library updates are less likely to be performed if they are difficult and time-consuming, causing the drug library to become irrelevant and ineffective. The Sigma Spectrum Infusion System offers efficient, wireless drug library updates with no power cycling or staff interaction needed, regardless of power mode or infusion status**, making library updates seamless and rapid.
** Battery capacity must be greater than 25% when pump is off and not connected to AC power.
One-third of nurses waste one hour of their shift trying to find equipment.2
The inability to find and track assets is a costly operational inefficiency and can take the focus away from patient care. Sigma Spectrum Infusion System is the only pump with tag-less asset tracking capabilities that will help quickly locate pumps for use and manage pump inventory efficiently*. This embedded asset tracking capability can allow you to:
Track your Sigma Spectrum Infusion Pump’s location throughout your facility
View the status of the pump, such as whether it’s in use or available
Provide better utilization of how the pumps are deployed within your organization
Account for the time the pump has spent in a location
Know if a pump is absent from the facility
Safely preparing, administering and documenting IV medication can be a complex process. The DoseEdge Pharmacy Workflow Manager and the Sigma Spectrum Infusion System each can leverage advanced technology to help ensure every IV infusion dose is prepared and administered correctly.
The DoseEdge Pharmacy Workflow Manager provides visibility to the IV dose preparation and dispensing process, while the Sigma Spectrum Infusion System helps reduce errors when programming an IV infusion. Together, they provide an advanced technology for IV infusion preparation and documentation efficiency, identification of errors, and IV infusion workflow across your facility.
Orders are sent from the pharmacy information system to the DoseEdge system.
Automatic calculations and barcode-enabled ingredient verification help ensure accurate dose preparation.
Remote verification of doses through web-enabled application helps identify errors.
The customized drug library with dosing limits and dose/rate change alert feature helps guide safe infusion programming.
Infusion data from the Sigma Spectrum pump is electronically populated into the patient’s electronic medical record after clinician verification to help ensure accurate documentation and improve clinical workflow.
The DoseEdge System is not intended to replace the knowledge, judgment or expertise of pharmacists and pharmacy technicians in the preparation of IV admixtures or oral liquid doses.
