Re: [IP] Animas IR1200??

The Omnipod has not been evaluated or tested for use in the areas of a coal
mine where an explosive atmosphere could develop.  The Ominipod is powered by
three, size 357, button batterys the same as a MM508 or 507C.
Is anyone wearing an insulin pump, possibly on the QT, to work as an
underground miner or any other occupation (examples - refinery, natural gas
pump station, chemical plant, or other flammable fuel handling facility) that
may take them into an area where an explosive atmosphere could develop?  Would
like to get some idea of how many pump wearers need a pump that is listed as
intrinsically safe. Then convince at least one of the pump manufacturers there
is a market.
Note - Almost no occupation takes persons to an area where an explosive
atmosphere is known to exist.

Ashley, have you looked into the Omnipod.  you don't have to disconnect it,
therefore no lag in glucose control
