Baclofen Pump CODE RED monitor post

Posted Apr 20 2013 12:00am

As of today my baclofen pump is now beeping and it caused a serious suicidal depressive crash this morning. I told the doctor to RESPOND IMMEDIATELY. And that my message to him was a FINAL WARNING before I’d take some sort of action.

Anyway he responded, finally, and we are looking at this thursday or wednesday. The pump is low and I do not know how well it will last into that far in the future. I have had these baclofen pump code reds and code blues before.

We will be monitoring this situation closely and updates will post to this post.

Heres what the alarms sound like

The pump being low like this causes severe spasticity increases along with psychiatric manifestations.

- 9:48 PM APRIL 20th

Severe insomnia noted. Severe depression occurred last night. Severe spasticity increase noted. If doctor does not respond with favorable scheduling a 911 CODE BLUE will be engaged at 11:00 PM

5:28 AM APRIL 21st CODE RED UPGRADED TO CODE RED/BLUE

11:44 AM APRIL 22nd SCHEDULED FOR PUMP REFILL TOMORROW @ 3:00 PM IN OPERATING ROOM
