Re: [IPk] no delivery alarms



Di

Obviously I can't speak for Minimed pumps, but surely you should get a 'no
delivery' alarm, whether it be your basal insulin or your bolus delivery
going through, because any insulin not getting through could (potentially)
be a risk.  i would have thought that if you didn't get a no delivery alarm
when your normal basla insulin was going through, then the problem isn't
there.

Or am I misunderstanding you?
