Elastomeric Pumps Concerns....

  1. Recently a friend of mine got diagnosed with cancer. Her doctor put her on Folfox infusion via an elastomeric infusion pump. She has concerns. She's afraid that it might break and the contents will spill. Her doctor informed her that many patient's has used it and so far there has been no complaints.

    Personally when I was in the hospital setting, I have not used or come across one. So this is a new thing for me.

    Has anyone ever used an elastomeric pump before? Has there been any complaints when patient's use it?

    Example of the one she's using....
