Pyxis® Anesthesia system 4000

Simplify medication management in OR and procedural areas

Pyxis® Anesthesia system 4000 automates medication management in OR and procedural areas. The system helps maximize security and capacity while enabling anesthesia providers convenient access to medications and supplies. Featuring innovative hardware and software capabilities, the system sets a foundation for future growth with a new generation of Pyxis solutions—the Pyxis ES platform.

Enhancing medication security and availability from the pharmacy to the OR and procedural areas

Pyxis Anesthesia system provides visibility to medication inventory and utilization to help pharmacy ensure anesthesia providers can access needed medication for patients. The system helps maximize medication security and storage capacity with an advanced biometric access system and a variety of drawer types—including a new controlled access drawer for larger high-risk medications. A new 2D barcode scanner supports best practice barcode-based system replenishment. The system supports hospital compliance efforts with The Joint Commission and regulatory requirements for secure medication management.

Streamlining anesthesia provider workflow

Pyxis Anesthesia system helps eliminate time-consuming medication distribution via case trays and carts. Transporting medications from the pharmacy and OR core to OR and procedural areas adds unnecessary steps in the preparation process, and manually filling out charge sheets and documenting controlled substance utilization is tedious. Specifically designed for anesthesia providers, the system securely stores items in the OR and electronically captures information on medication removals, wastes and charges—reducing time-consuming manual tasks.

Addressing common OR medication errors

Pyxis Anesthesia system helps protect anesthesia providers against unauthorized access to controlled substances. Utilizing the optional Codonics™ Safe Label System™ SLS 500i™ for medication syringe labeling, anesthesia providers can help address common OR medication errors such as vial/ampoule swaps, mislabeling/illegible labeling and syringe swaps. Codonics Safe Label System adds a layer of medication safety by supporting labeling requirements with electronic medication safety checks.
