Better Pump, Better Care

The Kangaroo™ Connect enteral feeding pump is a portable rotary peristaltic enteral feeding pump, intended to provide enteral nutrition to a patient. It can be programmed to provide patients with continuous, dose, or bolus feeding when used with Kangaroo™ Connect feeding sets.

The Kangaroo™ Connect pump is intended for acute care settings and home care use. Intended to be used in both stationary and ambulatory conditions, the Kangaroo™ Connect pump can be used for both adult and pediatric patients, provided the patient can tolerate its flow rates and accuracy level.

Enteral Alarms

Alarm fatigue is an ever-present problem for healthcare providers. It was named the number one medical technology hazard in 2013 by the ECRI Institute1. Additionally, hospital-based clinical engineers and biomedical equipment technicians identified alarm management as one of their top medical device challenges in two separate surveys by AAMI. In April 2013, The Joint Commission addressed the issue in a Sentinel Event Alert (SEA) on Medical Device Alarm Safety in Hospitals1. The SEA was followed by a National Patient Safety Goal (NPSG) on Alarm Management issued in June 20133, which is effective in two phases:

  • In phase I, effective January 2014, hospitals were required to establish alarms as an organization priority and identify the most important alarms to manage based on their own internal situations.
  • In phase II, effective January 2016, hospitals will be expected to develop and implement specific components of policies and procedures. Education of those in the organization about alarm system management will also be required in January 2016.1

Alarm fatigue with enteral feeding pumps can directly affect caregiver distraction and desensitization. This can lead to alarms that go unattended or caregivers attention being taken from a more pressing situation. An enteral pump with an accurate alarm system will help reduce the challenges with alarm fatigue.
