Covidien Kangaroo ePump Enteral Feeding Pump, formally under the Kendall brand, is for people who require nutrition through continuous feeding, intermittent feeding or feeding and flushing. The Covidien ePump delivers it all in one compact, simple-to-use, precision enteral feeding pump. Easy to program, this Feeding Pump can also be used with Enteral Feed Flush Sets to provide automatic flushing. A five button interface walks the user through the programming process while an alarm identification system quickly resolves any problems that may arise, resulting in a smooth and stress-free user experience. The Kangaroo ePump Enteral Feeding Pump is the latest innovation in enteral feeding. The Covidien ePump gives you the ability to accurately track the amount of formula and fluid delivered to a patient ensuring the prescribed formula and fluid is received by the patient. When patients require nutrition through continuous feeding, intermittent feeding or feeding and flushing, this feeding pump delivers in one compact, easy-to-use device.
Kangaroo ePump Enteral Feeding Pump functions on a straightforward ATM-Style interface that makes it remarkably easy to use and offers the opportunity to program hydration for both mobile and hospitalized patients alike. With the ability to program flushing intervals, this enteral feeding pump eliminates the need to manually flush tubes and sets. There is no drip chamber on this pump, allowing it to be used anywhere on anyone.
ePump Anti Free-Flow is an integral component of every Kangaroo ePump Delivery Set. This feature prevents the bag from allowing the free flow of solution into the patient (similar to a gravity feed set) if the set becomes disconnected from the pump. This is safer for the patient because it prevents a possible overfeed situation that could lead to patient aspiration or other complications. In addition, it provides for easier set-up and minimizes the potential for solution spill due to an open roller-clamp.
Kangaroo has feeding sets for the ePump, including the ePump Enteral Feeding Sets, Kangaroo Enteral Feeding Gravity Sets, and Kangaroo Pump Sets. Kangaroo also provides other enteral feeding pump options, like the Joey and the Connect. Below is a comparison chart of the top three Kangaroo Feeding Pumps.
