Re: [IPp] Choosing a pump

My 5 year old son in using the Cozmo since April 2003 and I love it.  It is
very easy to use.  I showed his preschool teachers and they couldn't believe
how easy it is to use.  They had no trouble programing and giving him
insulin to cover his snack at school.  All you have to do is type in how
many carbs he is eating and it will tell you how much insulin to give based
on the carb ratio you set in (you can set in 4 different ratios) and it will
also calculate insulin on board (so he doesn't go too low) and reduce his
bolus based on his blood sugar and carb intake.  You don't have to do any
figuring out.  Some say it's too easy and if something was to happen with
his pump you may not know how to figure out how much insulin to give.
However, I know all formulas and I always figure out what I think he should
get and then compare it with what the pump says.  I reduce or increase his
insulin if needed (which doesn't happen often).  But for ease of use in a
school with no nurse it's wonderful.  I also know the Animas is an excellent
pump and know several children on it and doing well.  Either one you choose
you will be pleased because pumping has made our lives so much easier.
