MADISON HEIGHTS, Mich., Aug. 19, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- InfuSystem Holdings, Inc. (NYSE Amex:INFU), the leading provider of infusion pumps and associated products and services, has announced the availability of new patient education videos. Written and produced by InfuSystem, the videos help introduce new patients to the basics of infusion pump therapy. InfuSystem is the first and only infusion pump service provider to offer patients and practices this type of resource.

The videos, which were designed in consultation with oncology professionals at dozens of InfuSystem's customer sites, are carefully crafted to support and supplement the educational training oncology nurses currently provide. Each video is specific to a unique pump model and covers basic clinical information such as clamping a line or changing pump batteries, as well as answering frequently asked questions about sleeping, bathing, insurance coverage and more.

The videos are available as integrated elements of InfuSystem's soon-to-be-released electronic paperwork system, as well as on DVD. Patients and caregivers can also view the videos at any time at

InfuSystem will be releasing additional patient education videos over the next several weeks and will also be releasing all videos in Spanish beginning in the Fall of 2011.

"These videos are an outstanding addition to the training my nurses do with each and every patient that goes on an ambulatory infusion pump," said Robin Wachsman, RN, BS, CCRN, OCN, Vice President, Clinical Services, West Clinic, Memphis, TN. "Each video answers all the most frequently asked questions. And I especially like that they are available online for patients to view and review at home with a caregiver."

"We are continuously focused on providing the best service and educational resources for our customers and their patients. Our patient education videos are a great supplement to the training oncology nurses already provide. We're delighted to be able to share our 25 years of experience with patients and caregivers who are new to ambulatory infusion," said Dorothy Haddrill, Director of Clinical Support, PhD, RN, OCN®.
