Plum 360

Infusion System

2018 and 2019 Best in KLAS IV Smart Pump

  • Reduce IV medication errors with unique secondary delivery
  • Increase safety and reduce alarms with closed air management*
  • Protect patient data with industry-leading cybersecurity
  • Increase safety and efficiency with IV-EHR interoperability 

Get Award-Winning Clinical Performance with Full IV-EHR Interoperability

The Best in KLAS Plum 360 infusion system earned the highest rating for pump performance two years in a row and features industry-leading cybersecurity and complete IV-EHR interoperability, helping you reduce medication errors and increase patient safety.

With the Plum 360, you’re equipped to do your best. With air management that reduces nuisance alarms and doesn’t require disconnecting from the patient and a secondary line that connects directly to the cassette and eliminates the need to raise or lower infusion containers, you’ll find that this infusion pump is unlike any other.

Plum technology helps reduce nuisance air-in-line alarms and eliminates the risk of common secondary setup errors that have been shown to occur in 48% of secondary infusions.

  • Reduce Therapy Interruptions

    Capture 1 mL of air in the cassette’s air trap—an industry exclusive feature—before the alarm is activated.
  • Reduce Risk of Contamination

    Help eliminate the potential for contaminants by keeping the patient line connected.
  • Limit Exposure to Hazardous Medications

    Protect clinicians and prepare for USP <800> with the PlumSet™ cassette’s closed system.*
  • Minimize Wasted Medication

    No need to purge the distal line because air is removed without disconnecting from the patient, minimizing wasted medication.

See Why Secondary Delivery is of Primary Importance.

ICU Medical’s Plum 360 infusion system is unique in the way it connects the secondary line directly to the PlumSet cassette so the pump can differentiate between primary and secondary infusion lines and deliver each as intended. And if your secondary line is not infusing, an alarm will alert you. The results? You’re more likely to reduce medication errors and ensure proper delivery

Deliver Medication as Intended

  The direct-connect secondary delivery helps to ensure every milliliter of medication is administered as intended, helping to improve delivery accuracy and avoid infusion errors.

Believe in Your Data

  With direct-connect secondary delivery, you can feel confident that the prescribed infusion is delivered and your patient infusion data accurately reflects the infusion.

Lower Medication Errors, Not
Infusion Containers

  Plum 360 functions independently of head height. And the direct connection helps to significantly reduce the risk of infusing the primary medication at the secondary rate.

Do Two Things at Once

  Simultaneously deliver two compatible medications at independent rates—through a single line—something only ICU Medical’s Plum 360 infusion systems can do.

How it works

Optimize Compliance and Enhance Safety by Automatically Starting in the Drug Library

When programming your Plum 360 infusion system with ICU Medical MedNetTM software, you automatically start in the drug library. This helps to ensure that the hard and soft limits in the drug library are utilized, greatly improving compliance and enhancing medication safety for your patients.

Large drug library

The extensive drug library includes 2500 medications (medications used in multiple CCAs count as a single entry), 40 CCAs, and 400 medications per CCA, giving you the flexibility to tailor your drug library as needed.

Clinical use selection

Multiple limits, based on clinical usage, can be denied for a given medication, allowing further refinement of the infusion parameters.

Extensive dosing units

The Plum 360 helps you administer the medication orders the way they were written with 120 dosing units.

EHR Ready, Today and Tomorrow

When you and your electronic health record (EHR) partner are ready for integration, your Plum 360 infusion system with ICU Medical MedNet safety software is ready, too. Whether it’s today, or any time after, ICU Medical’s full IV-EHR interoperability lets you connect your Plum 360 system to the IV medication order and patient information from the EHR.

Enhance patient safety and clinician workflow

Bypass drug errors and manual steps by automatically populating your Plum 360 pumps with medication orders sent directly from your EHR medication administration workflow.

  • Smart pump programming that extends the benefits of integration beyond the initial infusion set-up to include just about everything you do for infusion management—but in an integrated environment (new bag, rate change, titration, medications not in the drug library, and changes to the care area without needing to stop or restart the pump).
  • Infusion documentation that captures pump settings, start and stop times, and titrations—including accurate documentation of secondary infusions.
  • Alarm-forwarding capabilities to help reduce alarm fatigue and improve alarm monitoring and responses.
