  • Notas adicionales en la data
    New guidelines for priming bolus are listed below. • For a complete system bolus priming: Based on the drug's therapeutic index and patient sensitivity, some individuals may need additional monitoring until the released drug reaches the planned concentration. Do not increase the scheduled daily dose within the first 48 hours after a bolus priming as the released drug may not have reached the planned concentration during that time. • For a complete system priming bolus: Selected priming bolus parameters have been carefully selected based on extensive testing and modeling. To ensure optimal initiation of therapy, no modifications to these values ​​are recommended. • Priming bolus function was not characterized during intravascular administration of floxuridine (FUDR) and methotrexate; therefore, dosing in the first 24 hours may be variable.
  • Causa
    This phase ii of field action 573 is a follow up to the june 2013 notification (see attached copy of that letter for a full description of the problem and possible risks) pertaining to the priming bolus function of synchromed ii and is intended to inform you that medtronic is updating the model 8870 software application card (for version bbu01), as well as the labeling of the synchromed® infusion system to address the problem. the synchromed priming bolus function is intended to rapidly advance the drug from the pump reservoir to the tip of the catheter, allowing the initiation of therapy while the patient remains under medical supervision. the upgraded 8870 software card softens the potential for clinically relevant effects relating to unintended excessive release of the drug during the priming bolus procedure of the whole system. therapeutic applications on the software card for deep brain stimulation and spinal cord stimulation remain unchanged. this letter presents a description of the software change, description of labeling changes, recommendations for 8870 software card, and new recommendations for priming bolus.
