The present invention describes several methods based on the combination of device setting change with patient postural change to make fast and reliable hydrocephalus valve adjustment. The monitoring and the analysis of the pressure gradient values during these changes allow the tuning of the device, the characterization of a patient physiological characteristic and/or the detection of a failure.

The present invention concerns a medical pump comprising: a. A hard housing comprising a top (24) and bottom (1) hard shells, within which a rigid wall (3) and a movable membrane (2) create three distinct chambers; wherein i. said movable membrane tightly separates said second (29) and third (22) chambers ii. said first and third chambers have a watertight interface iii. said second chamber (29) is designed to contain a fluid iv. said first chamber (23) comprises a first venting mean (20) which is arranged to provide a fluidic communication between said first chamber (23) and the external environment; v. said third chamber (22) comprises a second venting mean which is arranged to provide a fluidic communication between said third chamber (22) and the external environment b. A pumping element (4) located in the first chamber (23) c. A least one pressure sensor which measure the pressure gradient between the first chamber (23) and the second chamber (29) d. A fluid pathway which permits: i. a first fluid connection (27) between said second chamber (29) and said pumping element ii. a second fluid connection (28) between said pumping element and a patient line (30).
