SmartPump multicomponent mixture builds

Hello everyone,

Was wondering how your institutions build multicomponent mixtures in your smartpumps. We have been working very diligently to improve our DERS compliance with our pumps. In working towards that 95% compliance goal, we continue to try to come up with the best way to have entries for our multicomponent mixtures. The especially challenging part is establishing the min/max parameters. Do you set those just based on one component?

One in particular is a Thymo/heparin/hydrocortisone mixture that we make that is given intraop. Really work to ensure anesthesia has a pump option but are at a loss on how to build.

Would love your feedback. :-)
