Breast Pump

Breast Pumps available on Smart Medical Buyer

A breast pump is a device used by lactating women to mechanically extract and store breast milk. Most breast pumps work on the principle of a baby's natural sucking rhythm. Most breast pumps have a collection of pumped breast milk allowing for storage of breast milk to feed the baby even when the mother is not around the baby. There are various breast pumps available having different pumping mechanisms:

1. Piston Pumps - These breast pumps use a piston which is drawn through a cylinder to create suction. These have a low speed and low noise, while having a higher reliability and longer life

2. Rotary vane pumps - These breast pumps create suction using a cam having with retractable vanes to create suction. These pumps are not used widely

3. Diaphragm Pumps - These breast pumps have a lever which acts on the diaphragm with thousands of cycles per minute

Types of Breast Pumps

1. Manual Breast Pumps

These breast pumps are small and cost-effective. The user has to repeatedly pull or squeeze a handle to generate suction. They allow for only one breast to be pumped at a time and are useful for infrequent use

2. Electric Breast Pumps

These breast pumps are further divided into two categories - hospital grade electric breast pump and personal use breast pump. Hospital grade pumps are larger and are usually used for use by multiple people. Personal use pumps are used by one person and are smaller in size. These breast pumps provide faster suction and some electric breast pumps can pump both breasts simultaneously. These are useful for frequent use
