What, sort of like an Open Pump-off?  I don't think so, but if you go 
to each individual pump's web page I'm sure that you can find the 
individual study of their pumps that prove effectiveness. OR just go 
to our Links page  http://www.insulin-pumpers.org/links.shtml

One could take it from your statement above that if a Doctor 
prescribes anything but a certain brand of pump that they are guilty 
of malpractice!   I don't think so!   What I said was that EVERY pump 
has been proven as "very effective" and each individual needs to make 
their own decision and be supported by their team!
