Drug Pump for Cancer Pain
If your doctor prescribes it, you’ll receive a myPTM™ Personal Therapy Manager. It works with the SynchroMed™ II pump to help alleviate unpredictable pain allowing for on-demand boluses, or doses, of medication within physician set limits. Patients prescribed myPTM with their SynchroMed II pump experience higher levels of therapy satisfaction due to individualization of the therapy.1
