Re: [IPk] new pump user

Hi Lydia,

The pump you may be referring to is possibly the H-TRONplus V100 from our
company, Disetronic, we are the other pump company operating in the UK.

Failing that, we do have a new pump coming through early next year (the
D-TRON) which will take the pre-filled Humalog 3ml pen cartridge. In our
opinion, it will be the most technically advanced pump on the market; in
addition to all the standard alarms you would expect from a pump,  there
will be also be a leak alarm, an infra red port for communication of data,
it will be fully waterproof, have two different programmable basal rates, as
well as the extended bolus function and it will operate on a DC motor, as
all the Disetronic pumps do, which means that even if the pump is delivering
0.1 of a unit of insulin per hour, this is spread into 20 equal deliveries
over that hour.

I hope this answers your question and clarifies the matter.

Kind regards

Estelle Lucas
