Frequently Asked Questions

First, verify that your tubing is the right flow rate. Then, check that the pump winds properly and makes a distinctive 'whirr' noise when turned on – this means the pump is working properly. Finally, note the time the infusion starts and watch that the syringe plunger moves in accordance with your estimated infusion time. If there is any doubt, please talk to your healthcare provider.

You can clean the surface of the pump with warm water and detergent or use any surface disinfectant compatible with acetyl-butyl-styrene (ABS) and polycarbonate (PC) plastics, such as household bleach or hydrogen peroxide. Avoid the use of alcohol or alcohol-containing compounds, as these tend to make ABS plastic brittle. Wipe again with clean water to rinse. The clear view syringe shield is not a removable safety feature, as it is an essential part of the pump, but it may be cleaned with a bottlebrush if absolutely necessary.

Yes. The FREEDOM60® is so safe and easy to use it can even be used by children. In fact, it’s very first users were children with cystic fibrosis. Because the pump is lightweight, durable, and easy to use they found it ideal. They loved the portability and were happy to be out of a hospital environment.

The FREEDOM60® is indicated for use with the Becton Dickinson & Co. BD® Luer-Lok® 60 ml syringe (US Reference number 309653; EU Reference number 300865).

The FREEDOM60® was designed to be both economical and versatile to accommodate a variety of infusion needs. It safely and effectively infuses anywhere from 1ml to 60ml in a standard 60ml syringe. If you are looking to use a pump that specifically accommodates 20 or 30ml syringes, see our FreedomEdge™.

If a dose is larger than 60ml, you can load an additional syringe because the tubing is reusable. For smaller volumes, the FREEDOM60® will adjust to whatever amount is contained in the syringe. The syringe can be filled anywhere from a full 60ml to as little as 1ml. You can also try our FreedomEdge™, which accommodates both 20 and 30ml syringes.

Yes. The FREEDOM60® can be used to administer many intravenous and subcutaneous medications. Some common questions we receive is if we can administer Vancomycin or Desferal. Many infusion centers are using Vancomycin up to 1.5 grams, delivering in 1:20 or 2:00 hours (45ml/hr and 30ml/hr sets, respectively) in a PICC or central line. For Desferal, the FREEDOM60® can deliver from 500mg to 4,000+mg in a variety of time frames. The advantage of the FREEDOM60®is its constant pressure mechanism, so the rate will not dramatically change during an infusion. Ask for clinical studies.

Yes. The FREEDOM60® can deliver from 500mg to 4,000+mg in a variety of time frames.

No, not at this time. We do have a design for enabling the administration of multiple doses, but it has not yet been placed into production.

Nothing. The wind-up knob is disengaged while the pump is in the on position. There is no effect whatsoever by turning the knob in either direction.

World literature suggests that no IV pressure should ever exceed 15psi for the safety of the patient. Some devices use pressures that exceed 40psi, a level unsafe for most PICCs and certainly unsafe for veins. A controlled infusion with a steady pressure below 15psi is considered to be an effective, safe flow profile for SCIg and antibiotic IV infusions.

The two main factors are the diameter of the tubing and the viscosity of the fluid. Immune Globulin, for example, will flow much slower than an antibiotic. Since temperature also affects the viscosity of fluids, when the temperature is cold, the flow slows down and when the temperature is warm, the flow rate increases. Tubing length and the efficiency of the needle set also can influence flow rate. There are also some effects due to differences in syringes, but these generally tend to be relatively minor.

There is a slide clamp on the tubing set that will stop the flow immediately. If the pump is turned off without using the slide clamp, some flow will continue until pressure from the black tab is removed by winding the knob clockwise to relieve all pressure in the syringe.

Precision Flow Rate Tubing™ uses a custom luer disc connector which locks onto the syringe. If an attempt is made to use tubing without a special connector, the pump will not allow the syringe to be properly seated. This is an important safety feature which helps ensure the use of flow control tubing designed for the performance profile of the FREEDOM60®. A standard bore IV set would not have the special luer disc connector. Therefore, if you tried to use a syringe hooked up to a standard bore IV set, the FREEDOM60® pump would reject the syringe and tubing. Another benefit of the luer disc is that, if the tubing is placed on a surface, it prevents connector contact and the resulting contamination.

The FREEDOM60® is powered by a negator motor, which is a specially designed spring similar to the ones used to drive clocks and pocket-watches. The negator motor creates a constant, safe pressure on the syringe. The user winds up the negator spring to reset the pump for each infusion.

Check to make certain there is no visible damage to the pump. Turn the pump on without the syringe and see if it runs. Let it run to the end of its cycle and listen for the clicking sound. If you hear that sound, the pump is usable. If submerged, or if the pump shows clear signs of abuse, we recommend that the pump be replaced. If needed, the pump can be returned to the factory for overhaul/refurbishment.

Not a problem. Unlike electronic devices, the FREEDOM60® holds full pressure on the syringe even after the infusion is over. The natural venous blood pressure is less than 0.5psi and is no match for the 13.5psi rating of the pump. In other words, no blood can backflow into the line to cause the line to clot. After the patient is awake, they can flush the line normally and should have no problem with clotted lines.

Yes. It is not sensitive to ambient pressures and makes an ideal patient transport IV pump.

The pump will deliver whatever it can at the safe pressure of 13.5psi. It may slow down significantly or completely stop, but it will never exceed the 13.5psi pressure inherent in the design, limiting any tissue damage.

We recommend that the patient monitor use by taking note of the time the infusion started and verifying the rate of the tubing set being used. For example, if the patient is infusing a non-viscous medication (such as an antibiotic) and using the F120 set, then the plunger will move 10ml’s in five minutes, meaning that a full 60ml syringe will take 30 minutes to administer. If the plunger does not move accordingly, it is time to check on the infusion.

That is the pump looking for the syringe. The pump is designed to search for the syringe, which could be filled to any level, down to 1ml if you wanted. Once the pump finds the syringe plunger it makes a clicking sound and is then totally silent for the entire infusion. During normal flow, the pump makes no noise whatsoever.

If the pump is working on its own, then the problem is in the "Y" set. First, check to see that all slide clamps are open. Then, check to make sure that the needle-free adapters are compatible. Generally, the cause is a blocked or unconnected line or total clot.

The FREEDOM60® is designed to operate on a patient, with a PICC line, and with the viscosity of a drug present. When operating without the resistance of the PICC line or the back pressure of a vein, and with water, a 60ml set will flow at nominally 72ml/hr. See the manual for details on how to bench test the FREEDOM60®.

Pat's Story

"I love my Freedom system! As an RN, when I learned I would need to do my own infusions, I was dreading it based on previous knowledge of syringe pumps. When I got my Freedom60, I could not believe how simple it was to use! I don’t have to find an electrical outlet so during the summer, I could infuse poolside! I would recommend the Freedom Infusion System without reservation to anyone who needs to do subcutaneous infusions!"

Shirley's Story

"I was diagnosed 20 years ago.  I do two (2) infusions a week and use the FREEDOM60 pump.  I have used other pumps, but I prefer the FREEDOM60.  It is very reliable, does not break down, withstands occasional dropping, is less expensive than other pumps, and is paid for by Medicare.  I fall asleep occasionally when I have the pump on and have never had any problems."

Shirley V.

Mary-Jane's Story

"I love my FREEDOM60! I have CVID and currently infuse 16g/180ml of Hizentra 2x a week. I began infusing with Hizentra/Vivaglobin in 2010. I received my FREEDOM60 pump a couple of months before that and I have been using the same pump ever since. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE my FREEDOM60 because it is reliable, easy to use, easy to clean and once I start, I don’t have to worry about my infusion. It is very durable and extremely easy to travel with. It’s lightweight and the fantastic carrying case/pouch makes it easy for me to move around while I am infusing. Not being tethered to an electrical outlet, like with IV, allows me to infuse when and where I like while doing things as I infuse. I love that the syringe is protected in the pump, so I don’t have to worry about bumping it and potentially losing a syringe full of Hizentra!"

Richard's Story

"The FREEDOM60 pump is durable. We’ve been using this for over five years. We’ve accidentally dropped it several times with no damage done."

Richard W.

Sarah's Story

"I used to use another pump, but it was battery operated and the batteries would run out during an infusion, leaving my husband to push in the remainder of the drug. With the FREEDOM60, we truly have been free from worry, our girls used the pump and love it and the ‘ready, set, go’ feel they get when they turn the knob. The tubing has been awesome and helped with speed and safety. Thank you for creating such great products! We can feel safe and proud to use them with our family."

Sarah C.

Jennifer's Story

"I love the flexibility the Freedom system provides. I can use it anywhere! It’s lightweight, no batteries, and easy to use. I’ve done my infusions with the FREEDOM60 pump, Precision Flow Rate Tubing, and HIgH-Flo Needle sets in restaurants, movie theaters, road trips, conferences, at work, walking around the house, and I travel with it all the time."

Patty's Story

"I have been using the FREEDOM60 since switching to Sub-q. I love how easy it is to use, and the pouch that comes with it. The fact that the pump is easy to clean with alcohol wipes makes me feel secure knowing that it is sterile between infusions. The pouch being washable and having storage is also a very attractive feature – I LOVE THE ZEBRA PRINT!"

Marguerite's Story

"My name is Marguerite. I am 54 years old, a wife and mother of two active girls, ages 12 and 13. I have been diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis and Fibromyalgia. I have gone to five different rheumatologists and other doctors in search of relief from the constant pain in every single joint in my body. I have found nothing that takes away all the pain, but I have found a few medications that help.

During my search, some of the therapies and infusions of strong medicines depleted my immune system. I caught pneumonia, was hospitalized, and almost died twice. I became disabled because the range-of-motion in my joints became limited, preventing me from moving very much. I also could not be around too many people because I could easily catch illnesses. This has been very difficult for me especially since my girls are young. They are involved in Girl Scouts and play in their school orchestra. I have missed many concerts and trips, Christmas parades, etc.

I started seeing a new doctor a couple of years ago. Once I became strong enough, she started me on Hizentra, which is infused at home with little needles, into the subcutaneous tissue.

I use three HIgH-Flo needles and the Freedom60 system. These products are so user-friendly. The nurse trained me, so I can do the infusion according to our family schedule. I even took it on vacation with us this year. I feel much more ‘normal’! This medicine and the way it is administered allows me to accompany my daughters on many of their activities now."

Joanna's Story

"Switching to HIgH-Flo … cut 15 minutes off my infusion time. They come with genuine 3M Tegaderm™ so it doesn’t irritate my skin the way other dressings can.” Joanna uses only FREEDOM60 Precision Flow Rate Tubing™ on her Freedom60® pump, and says, “By adding HIgH-Flo needles, I’m now able to achieve the best possible infusion from my FREEDOM60® pump."

Joanna T.

Sheri's Story

"Just had my 4th anniversary on Hizentra using your products – FREEDOM60 Infusion and I’ve NEVER FELT BETTER! I’m no longer ‘surviving’ but LIVING a full and rich life! Thanks, and keep up the great work!"

Nancy's Story

"I wanted to write and tell you that I still love my FREEDOM60® pump – after all these years!

I met you at a meeting where you showed your pump, and for me, it was the answer! Simple and easy to use. No complications. No batteries, no settings. I just wind up, push the button, and I’m good to go! 

Sub-q has been such an amazing and wonderful avenue for me! I was IVIG for eight and a half years – my life changed! It was a difficult decision to make the jump to being totally responsible for my treatment – but an exciting one as well! I knew I could do it because I was determined. I wanted to have control, and I wanted to live my life more freely. 

In January ’07, I spent a month in Kenya, Africa working at an AIDS orphanage, touring schools and homes for street kids, going on two amazing safaris, fulfilling a lifelong dream – this trip! Because of my immune deficiency, I was not really encouraged to go, but my wonderful new doctor was different. He gave me things to be careful of, suggestions he thought important and said, “Go for it!” Well, I packed up all my supplies, my Gamma, and my “trusty FREEDOM60 pump” – and off I went! No problems with X-ray machines – customs – nothing! From Palm Springs to England to Nairobi and back, all went great. The pump was so simple that this was its real plus on this trip. I never had to worry about batteries or if I had set it incorrectly – it was already ready to perform! 

Please don’t ever stop making this wonderful little machine!"

Thank you, Nancy H.

Ted's Story

"When diagnosed with Primary Immunodeficiency Disease, I was cautiously relieved that I finally knew what was wrong. At the same time, I learned that I would be sticking myself with needles for the rest of my life. I quickly found out that dull needles hurt – and all too frequently. This is the biggest hurdle that so many SCIg patients face. Anything that makes it easier to overcome the anxiety and fear of needles is a gift.

As I first tried HIgH-Flo™ needles, I immediately noticed an enormous difference – and what I “didn’t” feel… there was no pain when I put the needles in! Unlike the needles I had been using, each HIgH-Flo™ needle was sharp. I didn’t worry whether the next needle would hurt. The thinner 26-gauge needles go in so smoothly – it’s like a hot knife through butter. There was also less irritation to my infusion sites. Because the flow rate is comparable to wider 24-gauge needles, my infusion time went from 35 to 20 minutes. The higher-quality Tegaderm™ dressing that you provide speaks to the way you care about your customers – a pleasant surprise.

When I went from IV infusions to SCIg with my FREEDOM60® pump, it was a life-changing procedure – a major step forward in managing the disease. HIgH-Flo™ needles are another major step. This is good news that I will surely be sharing with other PIDD patients and my healthcare providers."
