We have found that large or hard pills are more difficult to get an initial crush. If you "nibble" at these pills, meaning that you crush a portion of the pill at a time, they break up much more easily under the crush block. The crushed pill is then ready to be pulverized by the roller.
Hello, I work at a children's hospital and I think this product could be great way for us to crush hazardous medications. One of my concerns is the volume needed to effectively rinse the bag. Some of our smaller patients cannot tolerate 20 mL orally, let alone 40-100 mL to effectively get the drug out of the bag. Are there any plans to create a smaller bag that would require less volume for the drug to dissolve?
