I have 2 questions today. What pumps are people using. We use the IVAC triple channel right now but are having trouble getting replacements. Any programs using another kind of pump and how is he ease of use and programing abilities.

My service uses the Hospira Sapphire pump for both ground and air. I find it to be pretty intuitive and easy to program. The battery life has been pretty good, and they stand up pretty well to the abuse that comes with the transport environment. We love the small size, I can easily fit one in the thigh pocket of my BDU pants. We carry both standard spike and string infusion sets, which are easy to prime and also easy to de-air if necessary

You have two choices when facing a problem...sit down and cry, or put on your big boy boxers and deal with it
