An intuitive and safe system for effective pain management.
Safety: The CURLIN PainSmart features built-in medication limits to provide safety during programming. Additionally, IOD (Information On Demand) buttons provide real-time infusion data at the patient’s bedside without stopping the infusion. Hourly totals and boluses attempted and given are examples of the data sets that can be monitored at the touch of a button to assist in patient care. CURLIN PainSmart pumps can also be combined with multiple protection options, including color-coded lock boxes, faceplates, administration sets, and other accessories.
Safety is further enhanced when PainSmart pumps are paired with CURLIN’s Protocol Library Software System (PLSS). PLSS provides doctors and nurses the ability to administer pain management through facility-established drug protocols (regimens).
Cost Savings: Standardized protocols provided by PLSS effectively reduce ownership cost through improved workflow, reduced drug errors and better patient outcomes.
Easy-To-Use: The pump’s large numeric keypad and screen will lead to potentially enhanced visibility and less errors during programming when the pump is configured for specific therapies such as PCA for postoperative pain management or epidural infusions for labor and delivery.
When precision and accuracy matter most.
The patented curvilinear peristaltic design of the CURLIN 6000 delivers fluid in smaller, more accurate increments than standard linear peristaltic infusion pumps (Resolution of Flow) with more precise and steady fluid delivery throughout the entire infusion duration (Continuity of Flow).
Resolution of Flow and Continuity of Flow impact how medication is delivered to patients. Understanding these attributes is essential when administering infusions to sensitive patient populations, and when infusing short half-life drugs or other drugs delivered at a low infusion rate. This video illustrates how infusion pumps deliver fluid, and why Resolution and Continuity of Flow matter to patient outcomes.

Enhance safety and control with the Protocol Library Safety System™
CURLIN’s Protocol Library Safety System™ (PLSS) is designed to shorten programming time and reduce opportunity for user error. PLSS allows you to create patient-specific protocols, or develop a drug library for all your patients. Learn how PLSS can enhance safety and reduce opportunity for error in your facility. »
