Summary:

Many people with diabetes have difficulty maintaining a normal blood glucose level. The Diabetes Control and Complications Trial and the Epidemiology of Diabetes Interventions and Complications study showed that intensive therapy can reduce the long-term risk of retinopathy, neuropathy, nephropathy, and cardiovascular disease associated with Type 1 diabetes. The choice of intensive insulin therapy treatment depends on the wishes of the patient and the comfort and competence of the healthcare team with a given technique. This updated continuing education module provides information to help clinicians better understand insulin pumps and how they work.

Objectives:

The goal of this continuing education module is to update clinicians’ basic knowledge of insulin pumps and their latest developments. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Describe insulin pump therapy
  • Identify candidates for the insulin pump
  • List advantages and disadvantages of insulin pump therapy
 

 
Jamie Dillinger, MSN, CRNP, CDE, has declared that she is a member of the speaker's bureau and stockholder of Medtronic MiniMed, which produces insulin pumps.
