Feeding pumps are medical devices used to deliver nutrition to individuals who are unable to eat or drink on their own. They are typically used for patients who have difficulty swallowing, are unable to take food orally, or have a medical condition that requires them to receive nutrition through a tube. Feeding pumps are also used to provide nutrition to patients who are in a coma or have difficulty swallowing.
Feeding pumps come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and can be used for both short-term and long-term nutrition delivery. The most common types of feeding pumps are gravity-fed pumps, syringe pumps, and peristaltic pumps. Gravity-fed pumps use gravity to move the nutrition from the reservoir to the patient, while syringe pumps use a plunger to push the nutrition through the tube. Peristaltic pumps use a roller or a bellows to move the nutrition through the tube.
The price range for feeding pumps can vary greatly depending on the type and manufacturer. Basic gravity-fed pumps can range from $200-500, while more advanced syringe and peristaltic pumps can range from $500-2000. Some of the top manufacturers of feeding pumps include Medtronic, Fresenius, Baxter, and Smiths Medical.
