[IPk] Pump problems / Minimed

If ever you get an error code or problem with a MM pump , I recommend that you perform a self test .
This feature is available in the newer generation pumps [ 507 , 507C , 508 ]

A self test takes about 60 seconds and check all the internal functions [ electronic components ] of the pump .

If you get a test OK message at the end you can be reassured that all is well .

If an error code occurs following the test you should call MM immediately .

This test can be reassuring if ever you drop your pump and can be quickly and simply programmed .

To check the accuracy of the insulin delivery rate [ mechanical function ] you can perform a rotation screw test . You programme a 7.2 unit bolus and the lead screw should turn a full 360 degrees . Instructions are in the User's manual .

Please call us if you need any help with these test procedures .
