Software, Device Programming/Testing, Implantable Infusion Pump
Definition : Device programming and testing software designed for non-invasively re-programming (e.g., modifying the drug-delivery rate) and testing implantable infusion pumps, control/monitor a limited number of the implanted pump functions, and/or process data obtained from the pump. This software is intended to work with one or a few models of infusion pump programmer/testers, usually from the same manufacturer. The software performs a variety of algorithms to facilitate the operation and analysis of the measurements performed while assessing and/or changing the characteristics (i.e., programming) of the implanted infusion pump; the software may also transmit and/or receive information from hospital information systems. Implantable infusion pump programming/testing software is not usually available separate from the tester but may be updated (i.e., through the release of modified versions) during the life of the programmer/tester.
