Syringe driver drug delivery for a terminally ill 85 year old man. The system uses a syringe inserted under the skin to supply a continuous flow of drugs to the patient. This may be to ease chronic severe pain in the case of an untreatable disorder. Such care, where relief of symptoms rather than the disorder itself is the aim, is termed palliative care.
