How often should I replace my Infusion Pump battery?

May 23, 2011
Many infusion pumps operate from power supplied via a rechargeable battery. Over time, the battery begins to hold less charge, and the recharging process becomes less and less effective. This can lead to false failure codes and complete shut down of the pump during use.  You should always Replace your Infusion Pump battery on regular schedule. Here are some battery options to consider when making your purchase:

Infusion Pump OEM-supplied battery

Replacing a infusion pump battery with a new battery from an OEM company can be a highly effective way to extend the life of the pump.

Second-source medical battery supplier

Replacing an existing battery with one from a decommissioned instrument can prove an effective option, providing that the replacement battery is relatively new and has a previous working life that is shorter than the one it is replacing.
