The Medicina P1000 enteral syringe pump has been designed to deliver small volumes of enteral feed, accurately and safely, using enteral ENFit syringes. The pump is part of a complete range of equipment which has been carefully put together to maximise patient safety.
An important feature of the P1000 pump is that the user must confirm that they are using an enteral syringe, if they are not the pump will not function. This will help prevent user error. The pump is also coloured purple to further highlight it is to be used alongside enteral consumables.
Many current enteral syringe pumps can be mistaken for intravenous systems. This poses a serious risk to the patients because intravenous syringes can be accidentally filled with enteral feeds, connected to central lines and can be used at high flow rates. These misconnections are not possible with the P1000 pump. The P1000 will only operate once the user has confirmed they have inserted an enteral syringe. This offers a unique additional safety feature for enterally fed patients.
