Albumin On/Off Pump Admin

Hi all,

We've recently heard about the inability to use albumin tubing with our large volume pumps and subsequent reliance on running albumin infusions to gravity. Anyone else heard this from frontline staff?

For reference, we have BBraun Infusomat Space Pumps with an upcoming transition to the ICU Medical Plum 360.

Thank you!
