The Homepump

The Homepump

Sentara Home Care Services offers the Homepump, a small portable device that allows patients to self-administer their medication with ease while maintaining their independence.  Most infusions take from 30 minutes to two hours from the Homepump device. While the medication is infusing, patients can move freely. In between infusions, patients are not connected to the Homepump, offering freedom of independence.
 
Our nurses will demonstrate this device while teaching and assisting how to use the Homepump. We will teach proper care of the patient’s IV access system and provide a written schedule of medication dose times. We are available 24 hours a day for questions and concerns.

IV PushThe IV Push

The IV Push is an option for administration of select medications, which offers minimal infusion time and is simple to learn. Each dose of medication is contained in an individual syringe and easily connects to the patient’s IV line. Most medications are administered over a 10-minute period.

Our nurses will teach the patient how to administer their medication, flush, and care for the IV access device.  We are available 24 hours a day for questions and concerns.

Curlin Pump

Curlin Pump

Sentara Home Care Services offer the Curlin infusion pump, a small portable device that allows patients to self-administer their medication with ease while maintaining their independence. The Curlin pump is an excellent choice for when automatic delivery of all prescribed doses of medications are necessary within a 24- to 48-hour period.

With the Curlin pump, no IV poles are necessary. Patients can move about freely with this pump. The IV pump and medication can be put into a pouch, fanny pack or backpack and wear it 24/7. This pump has an audible alarm that will indicate any problems. Our staff can help resolve any alarm issues over the phone any time of the day or night.

The Curlin infusion pump has the advantage of offering five different modalities. In addition, the pump allows clinicians to program a delay. For example, a home health nurse can go to a patient's home at 5 p.m. and set the pump to begin IV therapy five hours later. The Curlin pump also has the capability to provide history retrieval and line pressure monitoring.

SynchroMed Medtronic Pump

Sentara Home Care Services offer the SynchoMed Medtronic Pump. No other home care agency in the region offers this therapy. The simple but very significant advantage of this particular therapy is that patients who are immobile, like those with multiple sclerosis or spinal cord injuries, don't have to find a way to get to the pain clinic to have their pump refilled.

For terminal patients and those with chronic pain, intrathecal or epidural infusion therapy is used through a SynchroMed Medtronic pump and hand-held programmer. The pump, which is surgically implanted by an anesthesiologist, holds a certain dosage of medication inside the body. It is then administered by one of several home care registered nurses, who have undergone extensive training with SynchroMed.

For more information about the SynchroMed Medtronic Pump, please call Sentara Home Infusion Services at 757-553-3290, Option 2 or 1-800-HOMECARE.
