Contact Us

The BD Alaris™ VP Plus Guardrails™ volumetric pump offers benefits in the delivery of infusions for fluids, medications, parental nutrition, blood and blood products through clinically accepted routes of administration; such as intravenous, subcutaneous or irrigation of fluid spaces. Clinicians can use an individual pump or dock pumps as a part of a system in Alaris™ Gateway Workstation.

The pump has enhanced pressure monitoring with in-line pressure sensor technology, capable of allowing the clinician to monitor patient specific in-line pressure changes with high precision.

The BD Alaris™ VP Plus Guardrails™ includes the Guardrails software which helps to prevent medication error.


Features and Benefits

Helps prevent Medication Errors

The Guardrails™ Suite of Safety Software is a medication safety and quality auditing system designed specifically for infusions. It can positively effect patient outcomes by facilitating continuous improvements in the quality of practice.

Helps reduce IV complications

Improving the early detection of occlusions, by reducing time to alarm, can help reduce subtherapeutic medication and the risk of IV complications.

Simplified user interface

Easy set-up with colour coded IV set loading, large clear display and ability to start infusions with few key presses.

Guardrails Safety Software

Medication safety software is becoming a pre-requisite for infusion devices. However, many hospitals find the implementation a challenge. The Alaris™ plus software is designed to make the transition to full Guardrails™ implementation easy and in line with your schedule. You can use the same Alaris™ Editor to create your drug library and care area profiles. When your Guardrails™ data set is ready, upgrading the pump to Guardrails™ is simple.

The BD Difference

  • In-line pressure monitoring - Allows constant visualisation of in-line pressure values, improving the early detection of occlusions, by reducing time to alarm.
  • Air-in-line Sensor - Provides both single bubble and accumulated bubble detection to reliably detect air in the IV line, helping reduce the risk of infusing air into the patient.
  • Visual beacon - Ensures immediate identification of the infusion pump requiring attention.
  • Drug Protocols - Allow clinicians to standardize drug protocols and transfer them into the infusion pump, helping ensure the safe administration of IV therapy.
  • Alaris Safety Clamp - Proprietary design helps protect patients from the risk of free flow when the set is removed from the pump. The safety clamp also features a release function enabling the set to be used for gravity infusions.
  • Long-lasting internal battery charges - Automatically charged when connected to AC power to ensure sufficient time for patient transfers.
  • Integrated pole clamp - Built in folding pole clamp and Medical Device Interface (MDI), allows mounting independently or within the Alaris Medication Safety System without additional accessories.
