Chemotherapy equipment and drugs. Vials of cancer drugs with two designs of cancer drug pumps. These devices are designed to deliver measured doses of cancer drugs to a patient while stil being portable. Each pump can be carried in a bag (not seen), which is strapped around the waist. The tube running from the pump goes under the patient's clothing to a suitable vein, allowing the drugs to be pumped into the patient's bloodstream. This allows the patient to carry out normal day-to-day activities while being treated for their cancer, as opposed to having intensive chemotherapy sessions at a hospital. Photographed on the chemotherapy ward at the Avicene Hospital, Paris, France.
