Smiths Medical has gained a key US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval for a customisable infusion system that helps maintain effective epidural analgesia during labour and delivery or with post-operative pain management.

The FDA 510(k) clearance allows Smiths Medical to market its CADD®-Solis pain management system version 3.0 with Programmed Intermittent Bolus (PIB) and Patient Controlled Analgesics (PCA) delivery in the United States.

PIB medication delivery, using the CADD®-Solis v3.0, consistently administers programmed intermittent boluses (doses) that can be supplemented by the patient, improving pain relief and reducing the need for clinical interventions.

The CADD®-Solis ambulatory infusion system, designed for nurses, anesthesiologists, pharmacists and other hospital personnel, is a state-of-the-art system that meets industry recognised standards for advanced error-reduction features in PCA pumps.
