Product Spotlight: The Kangaroo Joey Enteral Feeding Pump by Covidien
Posted on December 17 2012Many changes are happening in the field of enteral feeding. One of the leading manufacturers is taking a step back to focus on their nutritional formulas, leaving the door to the tube-feeding market wide open. Covidien is stepping in with an all-new, one-of-a-kind enteral feeding pump called the Kangaroo Joey. Covidien has been making enteral feeding pumps for years, but the Joey is special. The Kangaroo Joey is the first hydrating and ambulatory enteral feeding device. This lightweight pump is highly portable, providing tube-feeding patients independence to do as they wish without ever missing a scheduled feeding. The Kangaroo Joey by Covidien is interchangeable with many Abbott and Kendall products. However, the Joey is not interchangeable with the regular pumps produced by Covidien under the Kangaroo name. Due to the no-drip chamber of the Joey feeding sets, they cannot be used with the Kangaroo standard pumps. The new Kangaroo Joey enteral feeding pump is simple-to-use with an ATM-style interface. It features easy step-by-step prompts, 8 alarm options, and is multilingual with 15 different languages to choose from. Additionally, this enteral feeding pump is highly portable, coming with a small backpack to help transport necessary tube-feeding items. With this feature, busy and active tube-feeding patients can carry on with their daily lives, and get their liquid nutrition whenever or wherever they like. The Kangaroo Joey pump sets are designed with the new, innovative Safety Screw Spike Set which is comparable to the new toppers of the Abbott Enteral Feeding Nutritional Formulas. The Joey pump sets are also free of DEHP and are anti-free flowing. For user convenience, the Joey enteral feeding pump also features a 72-hour feeding history. This allows patients and caregivers to monitor precise feeding statistics including amount and duration between feedings. Also for convenience, the Kangaroo Joey is appropriate for almost all patients and is safe for patients in infancy all the way into the geriatric years. This unique and convenient enteral feeding pump offers accurate, and reliable readings. It also safely dispenses liquid nutrition for a wide variety of patients. For continuous or bolus enteral feeding, and flushing, consider the Kangaroo Joey by Covidien. This highly convenient and portable enteral feeding pump not only delivers high-valued nutritional formulas, but also encourages independence in a patient’s life.
