Other Facts about the Infusion Pump
Whatever the differences in infusion pump dimensions, they are all indispensible in hospitals. Aside from providing nutrition to patients that are unable to eat, the pump is also used to administer medication to patients. After surgery medication is usually given by way of these pumps.
Infusion pumps come in many forms and configurations. The setup will depend on what it is required to do. Many are available for purchase, and there are also some that can be leased. The latter are used by patients who need it at home.
