  • The insulin pump is a medical device used for the administration of insulin in the treatment of diabetes mellitus, also known as continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion therapy.

  • A portable device for people with diabetes that injects insulin at programmed intervals in order to regulate blood sugar levels. ( 4-19 )

  • An insulin-delivering device about the size of a deck of cards that can be worn on a belt or kept in a pocket. An insulin pump connects to narrow, flexible plastic tubing that ends with a needle inserted just under the skin.

  • A flexible tube inserted through a narrow opening into a body cavity, particularly the bladder, for removing fluid

  • a thin flexible tube inserted into the body to permit introduction or withdrawal of fluids or to keep the passageway open

  • Medical fetishism refers to a collection of sexual fetishes for objects, practices, environments, and situations of a medical or clinical nature.

  • (catheterization) the operation of introducing a catheter into the body

Diabetes 365 - Day 39: November 25, 2007 - Every Three Days

This week's focus is, "Diabetes and our bodies."

Many people with type 1 diabetes (and a few with type 2 who use insulin) use an insulin pump to manage their diabetes rather than multiple daily injections.

An insulin pump works by delivering a continuous flow of insulin around the clock, along with larger amounts programmed in when food is eaten or blood sugar is elevated. The insulin is delivered through a thin plastic tube which ends in an infusion set. The infusion sets usually consist of a small adhesive patch to hold it in place, and a small, hollow Teflon cannula (or catheter) which is inserted under the skin. An insertion needle is used to get the cannula under the skin but is then removed, leaving the flexible part behind. (Some infusion sets do consist of an actual needle which remains under the skin, however.)

These infusion sets usually have to be changed every 2-3 days to minimize the risk of getting an infected site and to ensure insulin is delivered properly.

For those of us with type 1 diabetes, insulin is life. Millions of people worldwide have been saved by the discovery of this hormone in the 1920s.

This photograph is the connection end of insulin pump tubing. This hub snaps into an infusion set, which is a subcutaneous catheter that is inserted just under the skin. The other end is connected to the pump itself. The pump is worn around the clock, even while sleeping. Every few minutes a droplet of basal, or background, insulin is pumped into the body. This droplet is no more than what is in the photo above, yet this small amount of insulin makes the difference between keeping blood sugars in check and having them skyrocket off the charts (even if no food is eaten). When needed, such as when eating food or needing to bring down a high blood sugar, the pump is manually programmed to deliver a larger bolus dose of insulin.
