[IP] RE:pumps and air travel

<<A pump trainer recently told
us that one brand has a problem during airplane flights.  He said all of the
insulin is delivered during the flight.>>

This is an example of something that was  out of proportion when someone had
a problem in flight with a particular brand of pump. I have heard this
"story" from a competitor pump manufacturer rep.
If something like this does happen, the FDA would have been on the case long
ago. Don't believe negative comments about the competition. The pump trainer
who told you this is not up to date on the current pump technology and very
likely only trains on one specific pump. Check information on all pump
companies and then make the choice that meets your needs.
