Hello. I have been a member here for years. Since 2012 but never posted. I just discovered you have an app here. I think you all are wonderful. I know my question is unconventional and strange. I know this, however I really hope that you can help. I will describe what I am looking for here below. I ask that you would read this and understand that I really am asking for help. I am looking for free access to a computer simulator of an infusion pump. I want a simulator where I can work freely without having to actually follow a lesson. Where in real time set infusion volume, infusion rate, and in real time it administers it. I would like to have a drug library so I can essentially simulate an actual medication administration of medications such as Fentanyl, Propofol, Midazolam, Morphine, Cisatricurium, Vecuronium, Rocuronium, Dopamine, Dobutamine, Norepinephrine, etc. A drug library would be sooooooooo cool. It could be a syringe pump simulator, Or Volumetric Infusion pump. I need to know if this exists. Is there a way to use this without paying?

Are you a nurse or a nursing student? Either way you should be getting (or have gotten) practice both in school and in clinical. My institution has an online simulator for the pumps that we use, but I'm sure it's not free and I'm sure that they pay a hefty sum for the use of that application. I guess the question is, why do you need this? Programming a pump is a skill that can be learned very quickly, it's organizing and setting up lines which can take a bit longer to master.
