Re: RE: [IPk] The time of my pump is running out!



Hi Sara

There is no smart chip within the Mini-med so no it does not knock off af=
ter 2/4 years, in fact I have a friend in USA who has hed her pump for ov=
er 5 years with no problems at all, and she has never had it serviced yet=
, her philosophy is why fix what ain't broken!!!!

If the Disetronic pump last for 4 years with 2 pumps, then how long does =
the
Minimed pump last and does this one shut off at a certain point ?

Probably best if Christian explains his situation himself, but my guess i=
s
that his German clinic have unofficially given him a single pump with jus=
t
a few months time left on the clock to tie him over till the new pump (th=
e
DTron) becomes available. ie he's not doing it by the book...

>Do the pumps record how many days' usage you have had?

I believe they do.
