ISMP Survey on the Use of External Ambulatory Pumps in Hospitals

ISMP is interested in learning how hospitals are managing patients who present for treatment with a medication, blood product, nutrition, or hydrating solution infusing via an external ambulatory pump. An external ambulatory pump is a portable infusion device typically connected to a needle or catheter under the skin, which is used to administer products continuously over an extended period at home via various parenteral routes of administration. The survey is designed to collect information about three categories of ambulatory infusion pumps: insulin pumps, elastomeric pumps, and IV pumps that deliver drugs such as epoprostenol, analgesics, or chemotherapy. Pumps that are fully implanted under the skin (e.g.,SyncroMed II) are excluded from this survey. Please complete the survey by October 30.
