Frequently Asked Questions

Question Answer
What is AFF and how does it make the delivery sets safer? AFF stands for Anti Free-Flow and it is an integral component of every Kangaroo™ ePump Delivery Set. This feature prevents the bag from allowing the free flow of solution into the patient (similar to a gravity feed set) if the set becomes disconnected from the pump. This is safer for the patient because it prevents a possible overfeed situation that could lead to patient aspiration or other complications. In addition, it provides for easier set-up by the clinical staff and minimizes the potential for solution spill due to an open roller-clamp.
Do all DEHP Free Enteral Feeding Pump Sets have the Anti-Free Flow Feature? No, all DEHP Free Pump Sets do not offer the Anti-Free Flow Feature. Some Enteral Feeding Pump sets offer one or the other; some offer neither.
What is DEHP? DEHP is Di-ethylhexyl phthalate. It is a plasticizer that is used to soften plastic. The FDA has recently warned that DEHP may be dangerous to infants.
Can I use Kangaroo™ ePump Disposable sets on the Kangaroo™ Joey pump? Recommended that you use the Kangaroo™ Joey pumps sets only.
