Each Alaris Medley 8015 PC Module can support up to four Infusion Modules with a single power cord, and features a large, easy to read Color display and back-lit keypad for programming values. Programming screen displays drug or IV fluid name, dose or rate and volume infused. Real time battery gauge display lets clinicians know the amount of run time available for their current infusions. Compared to the Medley 8000 PC module, the newer 8015 Module offers similar functionality with a brighter, color display and Wireless communications capability. The Battery Run Time Display is located on the Main Display prompt bar. If enabled, this feature provides a visual display of the estimated remaining battery run time under the current operating conditions, when operating on battery. To enhance safety and ease of operation, the MEDLEY System provides a full range of audio and visual alarms, advisories and prompts.
The BD / Alaris Medley Point of Care System with Guardrails Suite MX software is a Modular smart IV medication safety system that can help protect every infusion to guard you and your patients from medication errors. The Alaris Medley Point of Care System combines a single point-of-care unit featuring Guardrails Suite MX safety software with IV / LVP, PCA Syringe, Syringe, respiratory monitoring (SpO2 and EtCO2), and barcoding capabilities.
The Alaris Medley 8015 PC Module is the core of the Medley System and and provides a common interface for programming infusion and monitoring modules.

The Guardrails Software is designed to help prevent programming errors by:
- Customizing device configurable setting to meet the ned of the selected hospital area/unit (profile)
- Comparing user programming with hospital-defined best practice guidelines
- Providing an advisory prompt if an out-of-limits entry is made
