The Pyxis Anesthesia System is a new piece of equipment now being used at the Newton Medical Center OR and Surgery Center. The Pyxis stores and automates all medications given to patients during surgery and serves as a supply system of drug administering instruments. According to Newton Medical Center’s Jeff A. Hansen, CRNA, MS, and president of Newton Anesthesia Services, this new piece of technology is more efficient, provides anesthetists with direct access to patient medications and health information, and decreases the risk for error. Both Hansen and the Pyxis system are pictured above. COURTESY PHOTO
