Have any of you have issues with the infusion ending early or late with the CADD pump? We have used the Curlin as well as the Sapphire and have issues with both, but I’m unsure if our issue is nor using a backpack therefore the pump not being at heart level.
We are working so hard to refine our process for Blina but the pump and bag seems to be the big point of contingency.

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.
