  1. Thanks for the information and background on these infusion pump companies. When I used to work in the hospital, our healthcare company used Baxter (as you said one of the leading companies). It was a decent product to use I think. If someone needs infusion therapy at home, do insurance companies typically pick it? Always kind of wondered that. Again, thanks for information.

    • Hey Jeremy,

      You’re Welcome. Thanks for dropping by.

      Regarding your question, I am not sure how it works where you live or with your insurance company but where I am, usually the doctors help you to choose the brand that is right for you and give you a prescription for a specific type if it is a prescription only pump. Different brands sometimes have different features so a doctor’s advice is best when choosing an infusion pump.Your insurance company would be concerned with the cost and the type of illness that you need the pump for, so if your insurance covers the illness and is high enough to cover the cost it should not be a problem and should be your choice. Another option is to search online to see if there are any deals or sales on infusion pumps with the specifications that your doctor recommends.

      I hope that helps. Let me know if you have any further questions.

  2. It’s great that you have taken the time to list out all these reputable companies that manufacture infusion pumps. I’m pretty sure many healthcare professionals will find this article to be very useful.

    I wonder if anyone can just purchase an infusion pump from these companies, or do you need to present some medical academic certifications in order to prove that you are qualified to use the pumps?

    Great article!

    • Hello Farhan,

      Thank you. I hope they will appreciate it as well.

      In answering your question, it depends on the type of infusion pump. Some pumps require a prescription, medical professional or pharmaceutical company licence etc to purchase the pumps directly from the company. However, some are sold online to customers without any type of licence needed.

      The restriction would be placed on the medication to be used in the infusion pumps. The company provides tutorials on how to use the pump and of course, a user manual. So for some infusion pumps, anyone can just buy one online but the medication they are going to use in them must be prescribed.

      I hope this covered your question. If you have any other doubts, feel free to let me know.

      Thanks for dropping by.

  3. Nice work, this has got to be the most comprehensive encyclopedia of infusion pumps that i have ever seen online. In my experience its usually the doctor in most hospitals that decides which brand the company will go with, but its nice to know all the options anyway.

    Do you have a particular favourite in amongst these options? I personally love the history of the Smiths group.

    Thanks for sharing this!

    • Thank you,

      I do not have a favorite. I appreciate the service provided by all the infusion pump companies. They have all contributed greatly to the development of new technologies for patients who need infusion therapy. Each contributed something unique that made the infusion pump industry what it is today.

  4. Do you have a recommendation on the best infusion pump? I don’t know a lot about the companies that you mentioned outside of the fact that they make infusion pumps. Are some of these companies more reputable than others? Additionally what are the cost differences between these different options? Thank you so much!

    • You’re Welcome. 

      So there are different types of infusion pumps for different purposes. Different companies lead the market for different pumps. For example, Baxter has the title for having the best large volume infusion pump in 2016. But all the companies mentioned here are very reputable and at the top of their game. Each has contributed significantly to the infusion pump market. Baxter is known to be bit more expensive than the other brands but all the top brands are generally in the same price range.
