Woodstock, GA – NeoMed is pleased to announce it has added the 100 mL syringe to its portfolio of characterized syringes for use in the Medfusion v6 3500 Enteral Ready Pump. NeoMed’s 100 mL syringe and the Medfusion Enteral Ready Pump are designed to serve as a single solution for the higher volume nutrition delivery needs of NICU and PICU patients.
With the addition of the newly characterized 100 mL syringe, NeoMed now offers 65 syringe configurations in sizes ranging from 6 mL to 100 mL for use in the Medfusion Enteral Ready Pump. The 100 mL syringe has significantly lower priming volume compared to giving sets used with bags and may help reduce the number of syringes needed to administer a single large volume feed. Furthermore, the 100 mL features an off-center tip, solid polypropylene plunger, and hands-free tip cap, designed to help maximize nutrition delivery while enhancing aseptic technique.
NeoMed has partnered with Smiths Medical to provide an enteral ready pump. Once installed, the NeoMed Enteral Library can be used for both Legacy and NeoConnect® syringes. This enteral pump solution adheres to The Joint Commission’s recommendation, which states, “Use distinctly different pumps for IV applications” and “Do not use IV tubing or pumps for enteral feeding.” Orange and purple faceplate options are available to color coordinate with NeoMed’s Enteral Safety System, offering visual distinction from common parenteral or IV lines.
Vice President of Business Development, Marc Waldman, stated, “Optimal nutrition delivery always remains at the forefront of our product design. It is our hope that the 100 mL syringe will replace costly feeding bags that may not deliver maximum macronutrients, micronutrients, and lipids to the patients that need them most.”
Vice President of Engineering and Product Development, Ben Davis, said, “We are so pleased to now offer the largest enteral syringe that is available for use with Medfusion pumps. Previously, 60 mL was the largest volume that could be administered on a Medfusion pump using a single syringe. Now, a volume of up to 100 mL can be administered with a single syringe on the same pump. This supports improved patient outcomes and eases workflow for the clinicians providing care to these patients.”
