Re: [IP] MiniMed's Paradigm

From: "John Morse" <email @ redacted>

>>>  Is the MiniMed Paradigm different from the 508?  <snip> and that it has
a faster rate of bolus injection? (it doesn't, it is still as slow as the
508, 1/10 of a unit every 35 seconds, 1 unit in 7.5 minutes).>>>

Whoa, Nellie!!  Where did you get 7.5 minutes for a one unit bolus?????  It
takes my 507C (very similar to a 508, but no remote) 5 minutes to deliver 6
units - hardly 0.1 every 35 seconds! I LOVE the slower bolus delivery - had
too much pain my first 10 years of pumping with the faster delivery kind -
besides, if I make a mistake I have time to stop the delivery since it can't
be sucked back out once in. And, I LOVE the clicks. I intend to go with a
508 when I upgrade in a year or so. YMMV  (~_^)
