Abstract

See full text

A medical pump for use with a tube set having a slack portion includes a pump housing and a pumping mechanism to meter fluid into the outlet line from the inlet line. A tube snap or a tube snap set is located on the pump housing remote from the pumping mechanism to gather and hold a slack portion between first and second tube snaps. In addition or alternatively, a tube hanger can be attached to the pump housing to allow insertion of a slack portion between the tube hanger and the pump housing.
