[IP] FDA reports

 Just did search on FDA; if anything happens please post to FDA as this is only
way we can get companies to listen and care and maybe (maybe) fix things

Event Description
 I was inserting a medtronic minimed insulin pump catheter when i got a zombie
state in the insulin pump display. Unfortunately, the pump state was while the
pump was attached and it continued inserting insulin during this phase as i
tried to get the normal screen display back; if i were alone i might have died.
Now i am afraid to use device at night as it might kill me. Blood sugar at time
was 39; since incident i turn off pump at night; called company help line did
not have significant follow up even though promised copy of medwatch. I am
reporting since medtronic may not have and do not want others to risk life. Wife
saved my life; wife found me unable to speak; took blood sugar - reading of 39
and she gave me gylcaon injection
