Epidural Tubing Shortage - BD Alaris Pumps

We currently use the BD Alaris PCA pump module for epidural administration. Our purchasing team is telling us there is not a yellow striped epidural tubing set available for use. They went on backorder awhile back and now we're being told there isn't an option to use with this pump module that has the stripe at all. Anyone else use this pump for epidural administration? What tubing are you using? Thank you!
