RE: [IP] 3 Minute Basal Pump - What is it?

You are sort of close.  A 3 minute basal means that the pump delivers the
basal dosage every 3 minutes.  The MiniMed pumps only deliver the basal
dosages every 10 minutes.  That is the lowest rate that they can do.

 I think that would be a pump that gives a portion of your basal every 3
rather then, .10 or .05 of a unit spaced out through out the hour..
