- 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.
Simply time your infusions! Note how long the first half of your dose takes, and then the second half. Compare the two times. If the second half takes longer, you may be able to find sites that accept the drug more easily. If the two times are just about equal, it usually means your sites are accepting the drug well, and the site pressure is not increasing over the duration of your infusion.
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 60ml 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.
