    One thing we have noticed with these pumps is that they can tidal a babies blood pressure. We are sure that given constancy in most other things, this tidaling is pump related.

Given the screw mechanism is supposed to be constant and non pulsatile, we find the syringe pump modules pulsatile as well. There has to be a better way. Or pump out there.
