Enteral Infusion Pumps At Health Products For You

Enteral Feeding Pump is a medical device that administers the amount and timing of nutrition delivered to a patient during enteral feeding. Tube feeding helps patients who cannot normally eat due to conditions that affect their normal ingestion and digestion. In such cases, the doctor inserts a feeding tube into the patient's digestive tract to deliver liquid nutrients and medicines. Enteral pumps ensure that the right amount of liquid is given to the body at the right times. The selection of the feeding pump depends on individual requirements and preferences. Pumps mounted on IV poles allow full mobility to those who are active. People always on the go can take the pump along in a custom-designed enteral feeding pump backpack.

At Health Products For You, we have a vast collection of versatile and reliable enteral pumps designed to administer enteral formulas. These are safe, durable, and lightweight, and, therefore, easy to use and carry. The pump from Alcor has a bright LED display which shows infusion rate and Volume delivered simultaneously. The Dualflo pump from Nestle is designed to administer a tube feeding formula and water for patient hydration. The Kangaroo Joey pump from Kendall has a pole clamp and provides patients with freedom and mobility while assuring clinicians of accurate and reliable function.

Safety measures to be taken while using Enteral Pumps

New statics show that using a feeding pump could be a threat to the patient's safety. The major safety concerns are:

In the home setting, the caregiver manages the enteral feeding system. They are responsible for the accurate, safe, and timely delivery of enteral nutrition. So he or they should be fully aware of the system and how It works. Any error or discrepancy can have an adverse effect on the patient. The caregiver should have basic training before using a pump. Feeding pumps should be calibrated regularly for accuracy.

Why Choose Feeding Pump Over Syringe/Bolus Or Gravity Method?

Enteral feeding is administered through a syringe, a gravity feeding set, or a feeding pump. Bolus feedings are large doses given several times a day, just like eating a meal. A syringe is helpful to deliver the formula. The rate of the feed is managed manually. Bolus feedings are aspirated easily and may cause bloating, cramping, nausea, and diarrhea. The patient finds it difficult to tolerate large bolus feed. In the gravity feeding method, the formula is delivered using gravity alone. 

 

The formula flows out of the bag and drips through the tube by gravity. It is a slow process. In the pump method, the feeding formula flows through a feeding pump attached to the end of the enteral feeding tube. You have the option to set the amount of the feed and the time to be delivered. The feeding rate depends on the patient's tolerance level and his daily routine. It can be continuous or intermittent based on the patient's requirements. Research has shown that the feeding should be continuous rather than intermittent or bolus in the case of critically ill patients. Blood glucose levels are well maintained due to a consistent supply of carbohydrates. It assures clinicians of accurate and reliable functions while providing patients with freedom and mobility. Fully portable design with backpack allows feeding to continue outside the home.
