Patient Controlled Analgesia (PCA) Pump
Specific Medical Solutions’ PCA pump has a major technical advantage over other mechanical PCA pumps when the patient decides he/she needs another dosage of medication.
Many PCA pumps come with levers / triggers which are difficult to pull down for people with arthritic fingers.
A gentle touch of a button allows the patient to receive the bolus of pain-relief medication. Patients who have had more than one major surgery and used pumps with levers / triggers as well as the Specific Medical Solutions’ PCA pump have reported that it is much easier to simply touch the button as opposed to pulling down a rigid lever.
