Version 2.6.1
DISCHARGE OF RESPONSIBILITY
AnestFusor Series II Standard (AF) is not a program, equipment or instrument approved
for medical use by any regulatory authority in any country. Therefore, AF should only be
used for experimental purposes and has been designed as an aid for clinical investigation.
The authors can not be held responsible for any problem or damage that may arise from
the use AF. The operator of AF is exclusively responsible for the use of the program and
the care of the patient. Accordingly, AF should only be operated under permanent
supervision of qualified and trained personnel. It is mandatory that all operators of AF
become familiar with its usage and the concepts that underlie the program before
attempting its use. While using AF the operator should not under any circumstances use
another program, as this can cause conflicts with AF and critically alter its performance.
Because of international regulations on medical equipment and software, if you agree to
install AF you explicitly accept:
1. To have a valid Real Mode license for AF extendend by SMB-Facultad de Medicina
Universidad de Chile. This license is for personal use only and not transferable.
2. To be authorized in the use of AF exclusively for clinical studies approved by local
authorities.
3. That in no event will the developers of AF as well as the Universidad de Chile be liable
for direct, indirect, incidental or consequential damage or damages on patients resulting
from the use of AF, even if it has been advised of the possibility of such damage.
GENERAL WARNING
Pumps infuse at ml/h and have a resolution of one decimal place (10th of a milliliter).
Therefore, AnestFusor rounds all values to one decimal place. Please be aware that under
certain clinical settings (very low weight and the use of highly concentrated drug solutions)
you should infuse using ml/hr (pump speed) instead of infusion rate to avoid errors in the
amount of drug delivered that may pose significant clinical impact.

File Menu
New (Ctrl+N): Opens a new case (Real Mode) or a simulation (Study Mode and Playback). If
another file is open when you create a new file, AnestFusor Series II Standard Veterinary will ask
whether you want to save your work. A new case or simulation will begin with the following
wizards:
1. Patient data
2. Configuration of peripherals
3. Syringe configuration (in Real Mode only)
4. Drug and model
Playback (Ctrl+R): Only available in Study and Playback Modes. Opens a previously saved
case or simulation. If another file is open when you open a file for playback, AnestFusor Series II
Standard Veterinary will ask whether you want to save your work.
To play back real cases, use file extension AnestFusor Cases (*.afc) in the Playback dialog
window. To play back simulations, use file extension AnestFusor Simulations (*.afs).
Note: All files saved by AnestFusor Series II Standard Veterinary are read-only. Files cannot be
modified in Playback Mode. This is true for both simulations and real cases.
Add Pump (Ctrl+P): Allows user to add a pump to a case or simulation. The total number of
pumps allowed per case or simulation is 4.
Add Monitor (Ctrl+M): Allows user to add a monitor to a case. AnestFusor Series II Standard
Veterinary is compatible with the following models of monitor:
 Danmeter CSM, versions USB and RS232.
 Aspect A-2000 and XP BIS Monitor, version RS232
 Morpheus Medical, IoC-View Monitor, version RS232.
Save (Ctrl+G) / Save As: Saves the open case or simulation. This option is deactivated for
playback cases, as these are read-only. Simulations are saved with extension .afs and real
cases with the extension .afc.
When a case or simulation is saved, AnestFusor Series II Standard Veterinary also saves a log
file in the same directory with the extension .txt. The bit core file contains a summary of the
properties of the case or simulation, as well as an event log.
Note: In Real Mode, AnestFusor Series II Standard Veterinary automatically saves your work in a
file called Backup.afc, located in the case directory. This backup is erased once the case is
closed; therefore, you should also save your work yourself. However, the backup will not be
erased if the program shuts down unexpectedly, for example, if there is an electrical outage that
causes a short.
Exit: Closes the case or simulation that is currently open and shuts down the program. If there is
another file open, AnestFusor Series II Standard Veterinary will ask whether you want to save
your work.
Note: For safety reasons, AnestFusor Series II Standard Veterinary will not allow you to exit
during a real case. In order to exit, you must first abort all infusions in progress.
External programs
Calculator (Ctrl+F1): Runs the Windows calculator accessory program. To run this application,
you must have it installed in your machine. If it is not installed, you may do so using the
Add/Remove Programs feature on the Control Panel.

Notepad (Ctrl+F2): Runs the Windows Notepad accessory program. If this application is not
installed in your machine, you may do so using the Add/Remove Programs feature on the Control
Panel.
Infusion Menu
Start / Pause / Resume (F2): When a new case is opened, this command will cause the pump
to begin infusion. For cases in which more than one pump is used, the command is applied to the
pump in the active window.
When a case is in progress, this command allows you to pause and resume infusion.
Terminate: Terminates AnestFusor Series II Standard Veterinary’s control over a pump. For
cases in which more than one pump is used, the command is applied to the pump in the active
window.
Note: This command is irreversible. To terminate an infusion, you must first stop the infusion with
the Pause command.
Target (F5) / Bolus (F5), Infusion speed (F6), Pump speed (F7): These commands allow you
to edit the parameter values for an infusion pump. In cases in which more than one pump is used,
the command is applied to the pump in the active window.
When you start a new infusion, the system will prompt you to enter the initial target and the
maximum pump speed in the Drug and Model wizard. When an infusion is already in progress,
changes to target value are always executed as quickly as possible without exceeding the
maximum pump speed.
In bolus / infusion mode, the operator enters parameter values for the bolus, maximum pump
speed, infusion rates or pump speed. When you start a new infusion, the system will prompt you
to enter the initial bolus, maximum pump speed and rates in the Drug and Model wizard. When
an infusion is already in progress, changes to the bolus value are always executed as quickly as
possible without exceeding the maximum pump speed.
If a bolus is in progress, any change to the infusion rate, pump speed or maximum pump speed
will stop the bolus in order to continue with infusion mode.
All of these parameters can also be edited from the toolbar of the active pump.
Max pump speed (F8): This command allows you to set the maximum pump speed to be used
by AnestFusor Series II Standard Veterinary.
Change syringe (F9): Runs the Configuration wizard for a pump. For cases in which more
than one pump is used, the command is applied to the pump in the active window.
Always execute this command before changing the syringe. The Configuration wizard will guide
you through the steps to remove the current syringe and resume infusion with the new syringe.
Note: It is important to execute this command every time you change the syringe, regardless of
the reason for the change. This is the only way to safely maintain control of the infusion and the
underlying mathematical model.
IMPORTANT: After a syringe change the program will resume the infusion state found just before
the change. Therefore, if you have paused the infusion just before performing a syringe change,
the program will return to a paused state after finishing the syringe change. Conversely, if you
icon) the program will
issued the change syringe command meanwhile the pump is perfusing (
automatically resume the perfusion according to the underlying model upon finishing the syringe
change. The same logic applies if you cancel the syringe change.
Warning on volume inconsistencies
The following warning may appear: The volume infused reported by the pump differs in XXX [ml]
SMB-Facultad de Medicina Universidad de Chile. All rights reserved 2002-2010

from the value calculated by AnestFusor. The consistency of the data cannot be assured.
This warning arises when the perfused volume reported by the pump differs in more than ± 1 ml
from the value calculated by AnestFusor. This is just a warning and it does not affect the
performance of the program. If this warning appears repeatedly, we suggest sending the pump
for servicing and calibration.
Rescue bolus (Ctrl+F5): AnestFusor has the possibility to deliver a "rescue bolus". This
option is only available in the Bolus/Perfusion mode (graph and icon mode) and plasma
steering mode (graph mode only). The default values are: 0.25 mg/Kg propofol; 25 g
remifentanyl and fentanyl. For the rest of the drugs the default value is set to 0. These values
can be edited. If you decide to change the default values, please edit them carefully paying
extra attention to the units.
Insert comment: Allows the user to insert a comment into the case record. For cases in which
more than one pump is used, the command is applied to the pump in the active window.
Comments will be displayed in the pump screen as they are entered, and they will be saved to
the log file for the case.
Simulation speed: Only available in Study and Playback Modes. Allows the user to speed up a
simulation or playback. This command is applied to all pumps used in the case.
You may increase the speed to 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, or 10x the actual speed. You can also increase the
speed to your processor’s maximum speed (F11). To return to actual speed, select 1x (F12).
Alarm silencing (F4): Only available in Real Mode. Silences the alarms on the Fresenius DPS
and Fresenius Pilot pumps. This command is applied to all pumps in use.

WARNING: You may exit the syringe configuration wizard at any time. However,
AnestFusor Series II Standard Veterinary will treat this event as a critical error and will not
resume infusion until the syringe configuration has been correctly completed. If you exit the
syringe configuration wizard but have not removed the syringe from the pump, simply complete
the configuration with the original syringe.
WARNING: Certain syringes may not be correctly detected by the pumps. For example,
the Fresenius Pilot pump is not designed to work with 10 ml syringes. In these cases, the volume
infused and volume remaining values displayed may be incorrect. However, this will not affect
AnestFusor Series II Standard Veterinary’s control of the pumps.
Configure syringe: Syringe detected
Once a syringe has been detected and confirmed, the wizard will display the following
parameters:
- Model
- Capacity (in milliliters)
- Remaining volume (in milliliters)
- Maximum pump speed with the selected syringe (in milliliters/hour)
- Solution concentration. At the beginning of the case (first syringe) this option is
disabled. However, upon performing a syringe change (second syringe and so on) this
option will be enabled. Therefore, please note that you must indicate in each syringe
change the concentration of the solution. Be careful and pay attention to what you are
doing!
If these data are correct, click Finish to resume infusion with the new syringe. If the data are not
correct, check that the correct syringe has been selected. You may click Back to correct the

Drug, model and mode
The drug and model wizard will configure the initial parameters for the pharmacokinetic model to
be used to control a pump. The wizard should be used for each pump selected.
Drug, model and mode: Infusion mode
Effect-site controlled: In this infusion mode, the control parameter is the target concentration of
the drug in the effect site. Infusion is controlled so that a given target of drug concentration is
maintained in the effect site.
Plasma controlled: In this infusion mode, the control parameter is the target concentration of the
drug in the plasma. Infusion is controlled so that a given target of drug concentration is maintained
in the blood plasma.
Bolus/infusion: This is the manual infusion mode. The control parameters are the boluses, the
infusion rates and the pump speed. In this mode, AnestFusor Series II Standard Veterinary
functions similarly to a system without computer-controlled infusion pumps.

Remifentanyl
Units for the target effect-site concentration: ng/ml
Propofol
Units for the target effect-site concentration: g/ml
It is
In effect-site mode, infusion is controlled according to the kinetic parameters of the drug being
used. Keep in mind that using an effect-site concentration target means overshooting the plasma
concentration.
Drug, model and Plasma mode: Time to target
AnestFusor Series II Standard Veterinary allows you to specify the time in which the target
concentration in the plasma should be reached. You may choose a time from the drop-down list
SMB-Facultad de Medicina Universidad de Chile. All rights reserved 2002-2010

or enter any value expressed in seconds.
The most commonly selected option is the minimum time (also erroneously called flash or
instantaneous bolus). If you select this option, the target will be reached as quickly as the given
pump and syringe combination allows.
Note: The target concentration-time can only be specified at the start of an infusion. Once an
infusion is in progress, any change to the target value will be executed as quickly as the pump
and syringe will allow.
Drug, model and Effect site mode: Maximum pump speed
AnestFusor Series II Standard Veterinary allows you to specify the maximun pump speed in which
the effect site target concentration should be reached. You may choose a speed from the dropdown list or enter any value between 1 and 1500 expressed in ml/h.

Drug and Bolus/Infusion mode: Plot model
In this step, the wizard will prompt you to select the model for graphing the infusion process. The
default option is no graph. If the drug selected does not have an associated model, this screen
will not appear.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Remember that you are in the Bolus/Infusion mode and therefore, the
model and graph selected are displayed for indicative purposes only. The pump is NOT
controlled by the model selected.
Drug and Bolus/Infusion mode: Units
The physical units selected in this window will be used throughout the case. All boluses and
infusion rates specified later must be entered in these units.
For example, if you enter a bolus of remifentanyl in g, the pump will deliver this exact quantity of
the drug to the patient. If you enter a bolus of remifentanyl in g/kg, on the other hand, the pump
will deliver that quantity of the drug per kilogram of the patient’s weight. This also applies to
SMB-Facultad de Medicina Universidad de Chile. All rights reserved 2002-2010

infusion rates and any other drug.
Example:
Suppose you have a patient weighting 25 kg. If you infuse one bolus of 1 g, the pump will
infuse that exact amount. On the other hand, if you infuse one bolus of 1 g/kg, the pump will
infuse 1 g/kg x 75 kg, or one bolus of 25 g.
Drug and Bolus/Infusion mode: Bolus
n bolus / infusion mode, you can initiate an infusion with or without an induction bolus.
Yes: The infusion will begin with an induction bolus and the it will continue with the speed
indicated in the Pump Speed item.
No: You will be taken to the wizard where you have to define the mode of infusion In this case,
the system will skip the the wizards for bolus mass and perfusion time for the bolus.

be infused. You may choose a time from the drop-down list or enter any value expressed in
seconds.
The most commonly selected option is the minimum time (also erroneously called flash or
instantaneous bolus). If you select this option, the target will be reached as quickly as the pump
and syringe will allow.
IMPORTANT NOTE: In the case of remifentanyl, the program automatically adjusts the minimum
time possible for an induction bolus to a rate of 0.5 g/kg/min.
Note: The bolus infusion time can only be specified for the initial induction bolus. Once an
infusion is in progress, any change to the target value will be executed as quickly as the pump
and syringe combination allows.

Drug Bolus/Infusion mode: Infusion
Infusion rate: Use this option to specify an initial infusion rate in the units specified the Units
item. The infusion rate always refers to the mass of the drug to be infused. The pump will
adjust the speed according to the concentration of the solution.
Pump speed: Use this option to express the initial speed in ml/hr. The pump speed always
refers to the volume of the solution to be infused. The mass of the drug infused will depend on
the concentration of the solution.
Note: The infusion type entered in this step only applies to the initial rate. Once the infusion is in
progress, you will be able to specify the rate of infusion in both ways.

Peripherals
Peripherals refer to the infusion pumps and monitors used for anesthesia. AnestFusor Series II
Standard Veterinary is designed to work with the following peripherals:
Fresenius-Vial Pilot Anesthesia 2 infusion pump.
Fresenius-Vial Modular DPS infusion pump connected to Base A or Orchestra
Asena Tiva MK III infusion pump
Aspect A-2000 or XP BIS anesthesia monitor
Danmeter cerebral status monitor

Multiple serial ports (RS-232): If your computer has a physical serial port, you will only
be able to use two infusion pumps simultaneously if you use the Fresenius Modular DPS Infusion
Pump connected to a Fresenius Base A with two modules. If you wish to add other monitors or
manage other pumps, you must add one more physical serial ports. The following are two
alternative suggestions for setting up such a system. .
Serial ports configuration
AnestFusor Series II Standard Veterinary has been internally configured to work with peripherals
configured to the specifications shown in the following tables. Any other configuration of the serial
ports will result in a communication error, creating malfunctions in AnestFusor Series II Standard
Veterinary.
The values in these tables are the default factory configurations. If this is not the case for your

Instructions for connection and verification of connection between the
computer, pumps, monitors and AnestFusor Series II Standard
Veterinary
1. Verification of drivers: Review the number of communication ports associated with the
USB-RS232 converter:
Startup  configuration  Control Panel  Hardware  Device driver
in ports (COM & LPT) review the port associated with the driver for the USB-RS232
interface
The name of the USB-RS232 converter should appear along with the associated COM port,
without symbols of any type (for example, a question mark).
2. Verify the connection with AnestFusor
• Execute AnestFusor
• Select option Real Mode
• Enter patient data
• In configuration of peripherals:
i. Pumps:
Select the pump model, COM port, and ID (Fresenius DPS) according to
the system being used.
ii. Monitors:
Use default configuration.
iii. Open connections:
Click Continue and confirm in the text box “Condition” that the connection
with the AnestFusor with the RS232 port for the workstation was successful,
and that the connections between the RS232 port and the pumps were
SMB-Facultad de Medicina Universidad de Chile. All rights reserved 2002-2010
33
successful.
If the connection failure is under “Communication status with the workstation COM port”, review the
installation of the adapter. Otherwise, continue.
3. Electrical verification of port
A practical method for verifying the real status of a serial port is short-circuiting the 2 and 3
pins of the DB9 connector using a jumper.
Starting a session in Hyper Terminal
Startup  Programs  Accessories  Communications  Hyper Terminal
Name: XXX
Connect using: “Com associated with USB-RS232 converter”
In port configuration, use default options.
Enter “Anestfusor” using the workstation keyboard. The message “Anestfusor” should
appear on the Hyper Terminal screen. If it does not, review the previous steps.
4. Verification of connection with pump.
In the AnestFusor Help menu:
Hardware  Peripheral cables
You will find a diagram of the connection to be used with Fresenius pumps. The other
pumps and monitors use a standard one-to-one RS232 cable.
