June 06, 2002
Description:A little applet I whipped up to assist in the monotonous calculations we need to make at our spasticity clinic at the Lamm Institute in Brooklyn.
Has Data:No
Has Forms:No
Comments:It was designed for use with pump models 8617 (10 mL resevoir) and 8627(18mL reservoir), with a tubing volume of 0.0056 mL/inch. The pumps have a set volume of 0.26 mL with catheter acces ports, but the checkbox will permit the older variety with 0.23 mL. NOTE: This is neither licensed nor supported my the makers of Baclofen or by Medtronic. This is my own applet, and all calculations should be accurate, but I suggest you do your own math and compare its' results a few times before relying on it. I will leave the applet open to adjustment at your own risk.
