  • (Dosing Pump) A device used to deliver small amounts of chemicals and trace elements into the aquarium water. It is recommended that kalkwasser be dosed in this manner.
  • (dosing pump) A pump which can supply a very slow drip which is used to add trace elements or make up water for evaporation. The most common type is a peristaltic pump.
  • (Dosing Pump) is a pump used to regulate and administer a slow dose or drip to the aquarium on a continuous or ocassional basis. Kalkwasser is somtimes dosed using a slow drip dosing pump.

Aqua Medic SP 3000 Dosing pump
Peristaltic pump for all bypass filters and for dosing of trace elementsThe SP 3000 dosing pump is an economic peristaltic pump for pumping small volumes of water. It can be used with bypass filters like the Nitratereductor and the Calciumreactor, and also to top up evaporated water combined with an aquaniveau and the Kalkwasserreactor.A further application is the automatic dosing of fertilizers and minerals. In freshwater aquariums, the iron fertilizer ferreal can be added daily. In coral reef aquariums, the addition of calcium and trace elements (products of the Reef Life series) can be automated using the SP 3000.

Josh left Africa on Monday with a full day of traveling ahead of him. His itinerary was to fly from Accra to Amsterdam with a three hour stop over, then from Amsterdam to San Francisco. In all it was to be more than 30 hours of travel. On the flight to Europe, Josh felt a fever come on. In Amsterdam, he still had a fever but felt well enough to catch up with friends on his stopover. On the flight to San Francisco, things got progressively worse. He experienced vomiting, more intense fever, dehydration, and an accelerated heart rate. Remarkably, he was able to soldier on. Sadly, in San Francisco, he was singled out by security and was asked to open every piece of luggage. He could barely lift his suitcase to put it on the table for the inspector. I waited for his call a block from the airport. It was an hour and half behind schedule, due mostly to the security check. When I picked him up at the curb, he gave me his bags but had to go back inside to use the restroom. He looked wiped out. He said, 'Dad, I'm really sick. I need to get to a hospital.' On the way home he told me he suspected he had malaria. Thank God, he had the presence of mind and courage to say this. We stopped at home and he lay down while I found an urgent care center online that was near the house. At Urgent Care they started rehydrating him with an IV and gave him nausea medicine and Tylenol and called the emergency room at El Camino Hospital saying he was on his way. The results showed his potassium and sodium levels were irregular. I drove him over to the hospital. Josh could walk slowly, but was very weak. At the hospital they set him up in a waiting room, ran an IV, drew blood samples, and gave him meds for nausea and fever. Dr. Chang (a hospitalist) met with Josh and me. He said they called in a blood specialist, and began arranging to have his room ready. When the specialist arrived, Dr. Kemper, she arranged for Josh to take quinidine orally which they had at the hospital. She also arranged to have some intravenous form of the drug sent over from a neighboring hospital in case Josh continued to vomit and couldn't take the medicine orally. They were still processing the blood samples and they were still awaiting the results as what strain of malaria Josh had. Much of this time we were in limbo and waiting. Lots of waiting. The timeline so far: I picked Josh up at the airport at 2pm, we were at Urgent Care at 3pm, Emergency room 4pm, visit by Dr. Kemper was around 10pm. Dr. Kemper explained that if the oral medication wouldn't stay down, Josh would be given the intravenous form. One of quinidine's side effects is related to heart rhythm. For him to take it intravenously, Josh would have to be monitored in the Critical Care Unit. The blood analysis showed that Josh had the most virulent strain (Falciparum) of the disease. Malaria is caused by a parasite. The parasites affect the shape of blood cells causing blood to not flow properly which can have a devastating affect on internal organs, particularly the liver, kidneys, and the brain. Dr. Kemper explained that malaria had affected 5% of Josh's blood. A level of seven percent can be fatal—the body just shuts down. Josh is very ill. Josh was given the oral treatment. After an hour or so, he continued vomiting. If the intravenous medicine affected his heart, they would be out of options. My heart sank at hearing that. At 1am they moved Josh to the Critical Care Unit (CCU) and put him on heart monitors and began intravenous quinidine treatment. Thankfully, within hours he responded to the treatment with no adverse affect on his heart. By 6 am or so, his percentage of infected blood dropped from 5% to 2%. As best I know, it's currently at 1%. Josh has been a real trooper. I still can't imagine how difficult his flight must have been. He's very tired. He still can't drink or eat. He tries apple juice and water from time to time but it just comes right back up and then some. He's definitely getting a core workout. He doesn't complain. He just drifts in and out of consciousness with bouts of fever, severe trembling, sweating, diarrhea, and nausea. He has three bags of IV fluids hooked up to him and getting doses of medications throughout the day. Nurses and doctors come in and wake him 2-3 times an hour. The IVs are administered via pumps that have a constant drone and alarms go off when the tubes are occluded when he moves his arm to try to drink. There is also the constant hum of his heart monitor and the ambient sounds other alarms of other patients on the floor and the chatter and movement of the hospital staff. There is a whirr of many machines and the flow of hospital staff. Mostly Josh is tired and weak and nauseous with episodes of fever, chills, and uncontrollable shivering. But he doesn't complain. He listens. Occasionally speaks and drifts in and out of consciousness. He's a good guy. I hope and pray for this to be over soon. Thanks again for your well wishes and prayer

Diabetes 365 - Day 11: October 28, 2007 - Calculating
This week's focus is, "Food." Imagine being accountable for every gram of carbohydrate you put in your mouth. Imagine that a mistake in this counting process could lead to serious consequences—some of them life-threatening. For people without diabetes their body automatically releases the exact amount of insulin needed to deal with the carbohydrates eaten without over- or under-estimating. For people with type 1 diabetes, they must manually calculate how much insulin is needed to "cover" what they are about to eat. Much of this calculating, however, amounts to little more than guesswork. Calculating carbohydrates while eating out, when food cannot be weighted or measured, is one of the most challenging aspects of eating with diabetes. I went to lunch with a friend who also has type 1 diabetes. When the food came, I estimated the carbohydrates in my meal and input them into my insulin pump for a dose to be calculated. My friend uses multiple daily injections, so did the same by jotting down calculations on her napkin. Both of us will be counting carbohyrdates and calculating insulin doses for the rest of our lives unless a cure is found.
