Title
(EN) BREAST PUMP APPARATUS FOR FACILITATING A MILK EJECTION REFLEX AND METHODS OF USING
(FR) DISPOSITIF A BASE D'UNE POMPE MAMMAIRE SERVANT A FACILITER UN REFLEXE D'EJECTION DE LAIT ET PROCEDES D'UTILISATION
Abstract
(EN)
A novel apparatus, a multicomponent system, and methods for using this system, for facilitating and augmenting milk removal from the breast of a mammal. Specifically, the system of the invention facilitates initiation of the mother's milk ejection reflex. It accomplishes this by providing auditory stimulus of the form of various sounds to the mother to facilitate to initiation, intensity, and sustaining of her milk ejection reflex. The auditory stimulus is played in conjunction with the action of a breast pump (10).

Nouveau dispositif, système comprenant des éléments multiples et procédés servant à utiliser ce système afin de faciliter et d'augmenter l'éjection de lait hors du sein. Ce système, plus particulièrement, facilite le déclenchement du réflexe d'éjection de lait chez la mère. Ceci consiste à produire une stimulation auditive sous forme de sons divers destinée à la mère, de manière à faciliter le déclenchement, l'intensité et le maintien de son réflexe d'éjection de lait. La stimulation auditive est simultanée à l'action d'une pompe mammaire (10).
