Re: [IP] Can I or Can't I


Electro-stim shouldn't bother you're pump at all...Just make sure that the
cannula insertion site isn't near the elctrode placement, because the muscle
contraction may effect the cannula. However, if they're doing it for pain
management, the contractions are very light anyway.  Do not, under any
circumstances let anyone do diathermy during your P.T. sessions while you're
hooked up to a pump. The electromagnetic fields involved affect the mechanisms
and could literally shut off the device.
