    1. Do you do continuous or intermittent? Continuous
    2. If you do continuous do you:
            a. Have standard hang times? What are they? Usually around 1800
            b. How often do you change the tubing? Daily
            c. Does it come primed from pharmacy? No we now circle prime and there is a CSTD on the end
            d. Do you have any issues with timing and the syringe ending too soon?

    3. If you know this information, what is your drug concentration and diluent compounded in?

    Thanks!
