o tackle the problem of “IV spaghetti” and to optimize operation and scheduling of multiple infusion pumps, we propose a new control system that for intermittent medication determines when which medicine has to be started and ended. The system takes medication schedules and dosages, other fluids, and potential incompatibilities into account. The system will include a display of information from the IV pumps, such as time left until syringe is empty, dosage of fluids, etcetera. The system can also manage a “relay” mode: gradual emptying of a syringe while a new syringe takes over, ensuring constant blood levels.
