Reduce allergy risks by cross referencing a patient's food or drug allergies with their current list of medications and foods, and receive an alert if an allergy or sensitivity exists. Identify more reactions based on the chemical make-up of a drug or nutrient, which detects sensitivities that may otherwise not be identified.
Quickly compare compatibility of meds in Y-site, syringe and additives with our IV Compatibility Tool. Check drug-solution and drug-drug-solution combinations prior to mixing in clinical situations.
Our 750+ illustrations enhance content and are a great tool for patient education or reference.
