    Hi Heather,

    We use the CADD pump and I believe you can purchase an infusion back pack for it. There are several options from different medical supply companies as far as bags go. See the picture below for a similar bag we use.

    Would anyone mind sharing the type of pump they use for home blina delivery and if they use a backpack or fanny pack for the patients to transport the pump/drug?  If you use a backpack/fanny pack, what is it called?  This has been a ongoing issue for my institution and we can’t seem to find something that works.
