- F10020 FreedomEdge™ Syringe Infusion Pump w/Travel Pouch
- 347400 Replacement Travel Pouch
Write down the time the infusion started and verify that you are using the correct control rate tubing and syringe recommended by your healthcare provider. Then, watch that the syringe plunger moves in accordance with your infusion time. If you expect dose to take 1 hour, then after 15 minutes, 1/4 of your dose should be complete. If there is any doubt, please ask your healthcare provider.
Flow rate can vary based how well your body absorbs the medication. Always refer to the medicine’s prescribing information and recommendations from your healthcare provider for infusion site locations. If you are experiencing slow infusions, site reactions, or discomfort when infusing, you can time your infusions to see how well your body accepts the drug. Note how long it takes to infuse the first half of your dose, then note how long the second half takes. Compare the two times: if the second half of your infusion takes longer than the first half, this may indicate that the tissue is absorbing the drug more slowly than it is being infused. Talk to your healthcare provider about switching infusion sites or adjusting your needles or tubing to better suit your needs. For more details please refer to the Instructions for Use.
If a dose is larger than 30ml, you can load an additional syringe using the same tubing and needle set. For smaller volumes, the pump system automatically adjusts to whatever amount is contained in the syringe. We also offer the FREEDOM60® pump, which has the same performance as FreedomEdge, but for 50ml syringes.
Speak with your healthcare provider to learn more about all of the Precision Flow Rate Tubing™ choices available, and to see if a change is appropriate.
The FreedomEdge is designed to operate without scheduled maintenance. If you ever experience a pump problem, immediately advise your healthcare provider who can arrange for a replacement if necessary.
