Item Topic Discussion
1 Agenda & Discussion Notes Review
- Chair
  • Previous discussion notes not reviewed - deferred to next session
  • Agenda reviewed and approved



2 Proposed Pump Model Review
- Todd
  • Reviewed the infusion pump specialization models that were updated based on discussions last week at the IHE PCD Spring F2F meetings.
  • General discussion:
- Though the proposal was to change "LVP" to "General Purpose", Erin indicated that a year ago ECRI changed all GP language in their documentation to LVP based on requests from hospitals. Decision was to leave it as the LVP infusion pump specialization
- There was a lengthy discussion as to the rationale for breaking out channels for syringe parameters and bolus dose parameters. Key issues included:
> Support for simultaneous operation of source channels (assigned to specific operational mode capabilities)
> Maximizing the consistency between the infusion pump specializations
A key issue that was identified was ensuring that there is consistency and simplicity in how the same pump capability (esp. dynamic operation such as bolus dosing over a continuous infusion) is communicated using PCD transactions.
Note: The models in the updated slides will be the basis for the information entered into the tools.



  • (Todd) Update the model diagrams per the discussion (COMPLETE ... see referenced slide PDF)
3 Mode / Status Discussion
- Todd
  • The infusion pump mode & status summary slide (from the previous discussion) was reviewed.
  • Need to distinguish between programmed vs. current operational modalities was discussed
  • Examples were provided, such as:
Set Mode: PCA + continuous + bolus
Current Mode: PCA + continuous
  • Note: in general, an operational mode / capability is linked to an "active" Source Channel (or PCA Channel)
Paul noted that it would be useful to create a matrix that plotted available modes against the device specializations. Adding the dynamic combinations would be good as well, that is, what is fixed vs. can be dynamically activated / dis-activated based on programmed modes. This would be especially useful in that it would indicate what combinations are disallowed, and thus improving validation of the data stream.
The current proposed definitions (set & current Mode + Status) will be used for the device specializations that are used in the initial publication. There will be a 6-week period after that to discuss and resolve any open issues before the trial implementation version is created.



4 Next Meeting
- Chair


  • Topics will include a review of the published DS documents & data sets.


Next Meeting

NOTE: Next Meeting will be held during the regularly scheduled time: 14:00 (Eastern) on May 23rd (60 minutes)
