[IP] paradigm concerns


Software Problems
Beware U-50-----the Paradigm immediately doubles all its insulin doses!

Never Use Clear Pump-----all basals and history are erased

Ensure You Don't Overbolus----25.0 units appears as their bolus selection

Hardware And Electronic Issues
Never Retighten Dislodged Infusion Caps-----no true lock ----Insulin delivery
stops once the cap and reservoir have become partly dislodged -----a twist of
the cap at this point can deliver all of the insulin that was not delivered
before. Doses as large as 15 to 20 units can be delivered

Loss Of Basal Rates---This pump lost its basals and history about 60 seconds
after the alarm started

Small Reservoirs Can Be Costly-----Those on 52 to 78 units a day will increase
to $2,573.25 a year
