This report classifies two basic kinds of medical infusion pump: traditional pumps and specialty pumps:
Traditional Infusion Pumps
Traditional medical infusion pumps are employed in a range of applications and settings from basic fluids for hydration to administering pain medications and antibiotics. Such pumps have been used in long-term care settings, hospitals, physician’s offices, and home settings. This can be further broken out to uses specifically in the emergency department, operating room, and neonate department. The three types of products in the traditional segment include:
- Large volume infusion Pumps
- Ambulatory infusion pumps (Chemotherapy Pumps and Disposable Pumps)
