Re: [IP] System Alarm - Disetronic Pump
I've been using my Disetronic pump for 16 months now and had something happen
today for the first time. I was changing the vial of insulin and was priming
the tubing when I got an 03 battery alarm. I changed the battery (which just
happened to be a defective new battery). Then got an 02 alarm (which wasn't
correct). Then an 07 system alarm!!!
I pulled out my book, found out I needed to remove both batteries, then
reinsert the batteries, reset the clock, check basal rates, etc.
Hi Joyce - I had a very similar thing happen last weekend (when I was at
church and participating in 4 services!) The 03 went off when I went to bolus
for a bagel (had eaten very early and was starting to go low), then the 02
goes off - I changed the 03 battery, but only had 1 with me. Then the pump
just went dead, then it started a constant whine - not a beep. That is when
I called disetronic - I had NO display at all at that time - so maybe it was
a 07 alarm. Got an anwsering service who wanted a number so they could call
me back - said I was in church - not convient - since I still had to ring
bells at one more service ended up just taking BOTH batteries out (didn't
even know that was what I was supposed to do). when I got home was relieved
to see I had only gone up to 153 (I was off for almost 2 hrs - plus the
bagel). I put two totally new batteries in and haven't had a problem since.
(knock on wood).
