Please note that hereafter the CADD-Legacy 1400 pump will be referred to as the DUODOPA pump.
Dosing and administration
DUODOPA dosing can be tailored to the patient's individual requirements.1 The DUODOPA pump can also be set to allow the administration of extra bolus doses by the patient.1
Continuous individualised dosing1
Daily administration of DUODOPA is composed of three individually adjusted doses: the morning bolus dose, the continuous maintenance dose, and extra bolus doses.1
These are usually administered over approximately 16 hours (during the patient's awake period) or 24 hours if medically justified.1
