Author: Ferreira R.P.

Abstract: Attempting to guarantee the quality of infusion pumps, a study was performed at a Brazilian public hospital applying the Healthcare Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (HFMEA). This technique can be applied for usage by the clinical engineering, to identify the failure modes of electromedical devices (EMD) and to assess the involved risks. Through this study, problems that interfere with the performance of infusion pumps were identified and subsequently some actions were proposed to help reduce the risks of these potential problems. These actions certify the safe functioning of this device within the standards of safety and quality. © 2009 Springer-Verlag.
