Continuous Albuterol

For those institutions that utilize continuous albuterol to ventilated patients via the Aerogen nebulizer, can you tell me what syringe pump you are using to delver the medication into the Aerogen nebulizer?

We want to use our Alaris pump but are getting significant push back over the concern for inadvertent IV administration. Aerogen makes specialized syringes and tubing that are incompatible with all IV set ups and we would be utilizing this.

Any thoughts on what other institutions do would be greatly appreciated.
