Hourly Limit

An hourly limit sets the maximum amount of opioid that can be administered in the given time period. The suggested purpose for this setting is to add a level of safety to the system; however, there is no data to support this claim. An hourly limit is automatically determined by the setting of a demand dose and lockout interval. The use of an hourly limit less than this predetermined limit does not make sense as the patient would be able to get a dose of opioid on schedule for only a part of every given time period and then not be able to receive anything for the remainder ofthe time.
