Introducing the Ameda Platinum Breast Pump, the perfect combination of advanced technology and the time-proven benefits of our SMB™ Breast Pump. Superbly efficient, it is the one-of-a-kind, customized solution for both clinicians and mothers.
TRUST AMEDA TECHNOLOGY
To achieve its comfortable, smooth feel, the Ameda Platinum breast pump uses an internal rotating piston. This durable mechanism is similar to the piston used in the original Ameda SMB™ pump. The piston creates a waveform that represents how suction builds, peaks, and releases during pumping. This rhythmic waveform has been shown to be the most effective for milk production for preterm and full term infants.
Only found in the Ameda Platinum pump, VacuSense™ Technology provides consistent suction during single and dual pumping and varying altitudes.
PRECISION CONTROLS FOR A PERSONALIZED EXPERIENCE
With independent controls, mothers can customize their pump settings to their own body’s response and achieve multi-phase pumping.
Babies change sucking speed to achieve multiple milk ejections during a breastfeeding session. Using the Ameda Platinum pump, mothers can also adjust their speed higher to help trigger multiple milk ejections and lower to help drain the breast several times while pumping.
Also, research has shown pumping at your highest comfortable suction setting yields more milk. The Ameda Platinum lets mothers adjust suction during a pumping session. This flexibility allows a mother to pump at her own personal comfort level.
Speed Range: 30-80 cycles per minute (cpm), in increments of 1 cpm
Suction Levels: 30-250 mmHg, in increments of ~2.2 mmHg
This precision offers over 5,000 unique setting combinations.
DESIGNED FOR CLINICAL SETTINGS
Our Proven Airlock Protection™ is the world’s only proven protective barrier to help protect breast milk and the baby from bacteria, mold and viruses while pumping.
The Ameda Platinum Pump is designed and tested for durability in clinical settings. The Ameda Platinum Breast Pump uses the same preassembled collection kit as all other Ameda electric breast pumps. Keep inventory and training simple by using the same kit for all Ameda electric pumps.
For easy trouble-shooting, a Clear Message Display indicates if service is required or if the HygieniKit ® Milk Collection System is not properly attached.
The Platinum Pump has an integrated handle and it can be attached to an Ameda Trolley for safe, secure transport in clinical settings. The pump can easily be cleaned with hospital-approved antibacterial cleaner, such as Cavicide
Ameda sales specialists provide personalized in-servicing and educational materials to support clinicians and mothers.
With three Easy-to-Read LCD Screens, moms can return to their own preferred settings day and night. A built-in timer makes following pumping schedules and protocols easier. The pump automatically shuts off after 60 minutes.
The Soft Touch Control Panel has an intuitive design with easy to locate settings and power buttons. The suction control is displayed in percentage units of 1-100% rather than mmHg. Graphical elements change as mothers increase or decrease their speed or suction setting.
Built-in Dual Bottle Holders securely hold most standard bottles upright on top of the pump. For milk bags or smaller containers, the breast flange can be placed in the bottle holders to help prevent spills

"I used the hospitals [competitive breast pump] starting on 12/16, four hours after birth up until I received the Ameda Platinum Breast Pump on 12/18. At 1 pm on 12/18, I pumped 16 ccs using the [competitive breast pump]. At 4:00 pm on 12/18, I pumped 52 ccs using the Ameda Platinum Breast Pump.”

"From the next 24 hours, I was pumping 44-60 ccs. At 4 pm on 12/19, I pumped 90 ccs. By 8 pm on 12/20, I pumped 150 ccs. And by 2 am on 12/21, I pumped 180 ccs.”
"When we returned the Ameda Platinum Breast Pump, my son was still exclusively receiving pumped breast milk with occasional sessions at the breast so we could closely monitor his intake. Within two weeks, I was able to store 200 ounces in our freezer for our personal use and donate 160 to the Mothers Milk Bank. To date, I have pumped 500 ounces for the milk bank, and I still have 140 ounces in the freezer, plus he is taking all feeds from the breast.”
"I cannot express my gratitude for allowing me to use the Ameda Platinum Breast Pump. It had a tremendous impact on our NICU success, and as I shared by phone, the ability to focus on pumping gave me a sense of freedom and control in a situation where I had none. I am so grateful."

"As an exclusive pumper for 11-month-old twins, I can sincerely say that I have tried my fair share of breast pumps. My twins were born at 34 weeks via emergency c-section and spent 3 weeks in the NICU. Forced to pump to give my babies breastmilk, I learned the ins and outs of pumping pretty quickly. Unfortunately, I didn’t receive the support or encouragement to bring my babies to breast once their conditions improved. The twins were accustomed to their bottles and had neither the patience nor desire to try and latch, which meant more time at the pump for me.”

"At 10 months my supply dipped. I decided it was time to step up my game plan and rent a hospital-grade pump. I was pleased with my Purely Yours and I knew I wouldn’t be disappointed with the Ameda Platinum rental pump. Here are the things I love about this pump:
•Digital display—for speed and suction
•Timer—such a simple feature but so useful
•Efficient—I have been using this pump for about a month and have been able to maintain my supply
•Fairly Quiet—enough said
•Bottle holders—so you have a place to put the bottles without worrying about them falling over
•[No] worry about milk or moisture getting in the tubes
•Compatible with the Ameda Purely Yours personal use pump—no need to buy any extra parts, tubing, etc.
The Ameda Platinum rental pump is an excellent pump that comes highly recommended from an experienced pumper! Definitely worth the extra money if you are looking to establish or maintain your supply.”

“My pumping journey has been nothing noteworthy. I knew when pregnant that I wanted to breastfeed, and hoped I could make it to my daughters first birthday. I purchased a competitors pump prior to her birth because I would be a working mom, and I wanted to be prepared. While in the hospital, during my daughters 5-day NICU stay, I pumped regularly and exclusively breastfed my daughter, specifically instructing the nursing staff to not give her formula. When we went home, we continued on our very successful and positive breastfeeding relationship. I pumped occasionally, but since my daughter came to work with me, I didnt have a regular need for pumped milk. And since she refused a bottle, our efforts were in vain anyhow. When I did pump, it was out of extreme necessity (a business trip) and was awful. Painful. Pinchy. Swollen and irritated nipples. No letdown. Stressful. I stopped pumping when she was about 5 months old. I packed up my pump and gladly sent it out to the garage for storage. I didnt care if I ever saw that horrible contraption ever again.
More than a year later, at 18 months, my daughter is still a nursing champ! I was asked by a friend if I would be willing to donate milk to her son. He was very underweight and she was having low-supply issues. I, immediately, said of course. Out came the dreaded pump. It was as horrible as I remembered it. Painful. Pinchy. Swollen and irritated nipples. No letdown. Stressful. I started to worry that pumping like this would negatively impact my daughters ability to nurse!
To top it all off, I was only getting about 1 oz of breastmilk. Was this painful endeavor ever going to produce anything? After seeing the Ameda Platinum, I chose to rent it for a month. One month of pumping, and then I would decide if I would continue. I was not optimistic.
Words cannot effectively express the complete difference I have experienced pumping with the Ameda Platinum. The suction has been consistent, smooth and painless. I can vary speed and suction strength to suit how my body is feeling, in that moment. Multiple letdowns! It has been amazing! And what is even more amazing, is the quality of milk appears vastly superior. I can see a marked increase in how much hindmilk is being expressed. In addition, I am able to express, generally, at least 1oz more per pumping session than I was when using my other pump.
Best of all, because this pumping experience is pleasant, I will happily continue to pump milk and will help another mom nourish her baby. I will only do so with an Ameda. Thank you for creating a pump that has revolutionized my personal pumping experience.”
