Historically, most of the equipment being used by homecare patients on parenteral or enteral feed was intended for use in hospitals, not the home. Our members had, and continue to have, clear ideas of what is acceptable in terms of portability and general user-friendliness.
To this end PINNT continues to work very closely with LITRE (Looking Into The Requirements for Equipment), a standing committee PINNT. LITRE is able to bring problems to the attention of professionals and industry.
Between us, we have already achieved many improvements, including bringing portable pumps to market, modifications to PN pumps and special drip stands amongst many others and we look forward to many more.
