    Is anyone currently using the EPIC SMART eZ pump for delivery of 5 FU to their patients.  If you are using it, do you like the pumps?  Have you had any issues or concerns?

    We have been using the pumps for approximately five months.  Both staff and patients love them!!  We have had a couple of them not infuse and thought maybe our clave had something to do with it.  We also thought maybe the tubing wasn't completely open because the clamp indents the tubing significantly.  So, now we massage the tubing where the clamp was to ensure it is open.  We have not had any issues over the last couple of months.
