Most people would agree that the immediate challenge in Desferal Treatment is to increase the level of patient compliance. Smaller syringe pumps have done much to improve the quality of people’s health and lives. However, pumps themselves are merely an element in the infusion process, they must be attached to a tubing, the infusion set. Even the best pump cannot function optimally without a high quality infusion set.
Many pump users have experienced skin irritations and allergies in connection with Desferal use. Typically, this presents as a local skin irritation around the injection site. In serious cases allergic reactions can occur.
