Medfusion® 3500 Pumps Working Very Close to Home
Dean, a senior manufacturing technician, has worked on the Medfusion® 3500 pumps to make them the best on the market.
In January of 2011 Dean saw a Medfusion® pump in real-life action when he was blessed with two beautiful granddaughters. One had a respiratory problem and was transferred to a specialist hospital. The ambulance used for the transfer had an incubator and four Medfusion® 3500 pumps. Dean was thrilled to see the pumps being used to help his new granddaughter during her transfer.
Dean was pleased to hear how the nurses were happy with the Medfusion® pumps, and he proudly answered their questions. Both girls were released from the hospital soon after in excellent condition.

Sarah, Marketing ManagerSmiths Medical has provided guidance and financial support to further education. I embarked on a Professional Certificate in Marketing, the course gave me the knowledge and a new exposure to business as a whole.
Chris, Director | Product ManagementI joined Smiths Medical as an Associate Product Manager in 2006 and am now a Director of Global Product Management. The opportunity to work in different franchises across regional marketing and global product management has allowed me to learn best practices to make the organization more effective in the future. Today I am integrating this experience into our new product development and commercialization activities for our customers and regional teams around the world.
Peter, Business Analyst | Clinical InnovationI was given a great opportunity to participate in the Smiths Group Horizons program.

The exposure across the whole of Smiths that followed broadened both my knowledge and capabilities and helped me to achieve a new role.

I do feel that I have learnt to make hard and difficult decisions, which I would have shied away from before joining Smiths.

I have been given the opportunity to mentor and coach individuals and I have seen many people grow and develop their own careers!
