Re: [IPk] question about minimed pump



Sorry for the delay in replying to this 'Blank Screen' problem, but I have
missed a few days postings.

I have not had any other reports of anything like this and would tend to
assume that if everything is OK now that is not significant. However I have
sent the info of to Minimed for their comments. I really want to check it is
not some new feature in the 508, but I don't believe so - as John says it
would not help anything.

Whenever you get a 'glitch' with any pump just be especially wary for the
next few hours to see that everything continues to work. With all the
sophisticated monitoring that goes on inside these things (Both MiniMed and
Disetronic) now you will get occasional error messages and most will simply
be sorted when the pumps are reset.

I will post more when I hear from MiniMed

PS does anyone out there know what is the true cost of insulin in vials
versus cartridges - I am trying to do a detailed cost analysis and this info
is vital.
