WINTER PARK, Fla., April 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- HealthTrust Purchasing Group (HealthTrust), one of the largest health care supply contracting companies in the United States, has awarded IRadimed Corporation a contract for its MRidium™ MRI Infusion Pump Systems. Effective April 1, 2013, the agreement makes the MRidium™ Systems available to the more than 1,400 not-for-profit and for-profit acute care facility members served by HealthTrust. The MRidium™ System was awarded the contract under HealthTrust's MR Compatible IV Pump category. This new agreement offers a broad base of new customers for IRadimed to serve and grow its current strong base of MRidium™ MRI infusion pumps in the U.S. market.
IRadimed's MRidium™ infusion pump is the only non-magnetic MRI IV pump solution currently available on the market today and is built from the ground up to deliver accurately and safely in the MRI area. "It is critical to have products which have been designed with the utmost care and thorough insight of this harsh and potentially dangerous environment," said Roger Susi, president and founder of IRadimed Corporation.
The MRidium™3860 MRI Infusion System offers optional integrated Masimo SET® SpO2 capability for continuous monitoring of patients from the ICU, NICU, Neurology and other areas of the hospital right into the MRI Suite. The 3860 System also offers an expanded drug library with DERS (Dose Error Reduction System), which helps prevent medication entry errors while programming infusions, and provides the patient safety features that are quickly becoming the standard in infusion therapy in general patient care areas.
The MRidium™ System offers a modular second channel, which when attached to the 3860 IV Pump, allows for delivery of two medications simultaneously during patient scans. An optional fully featured wireless remote control monitor is also available that has true plug and play capabilities, requiring no installation. A full range of available infusion sets are also available to provide the clinical flexibility needed in the demanding MRI environment.
