Insulin pump accidentally falls, don’t hurry to deal with

Many diabetic patients are more careless, and it is easy to drop insulin pumps, and they do n’t know how to deal with them.

In this case, experts suggest that the appearance of the insulin pump should be checked immediately. The occurrence of cracks means that the pump will lose waterproof effect and need to be repaired in time. Secondly, see if all the accessories are in the correct position, there are signs of shaking and looseness. Check that there is a liquid leak at all the connections. A piece of cloth can be wrapped around the connection to observe whether there are signs of humidity.

The most important thing is to remove the infusion device from the body immediately, take out the battery, and then install it. In this way, the insulin pump will automatically perform self -examination. After determining the normal work of the insulin pump, it will be reopened. It should be noted that during wearing, pay attention to avoid being clamped or wrapped in the entire infusion device, so as not to affect the correct infusion of insulin.

When replacing the drug storage device, pay attention that insulin should be removed from the refrigerator 3 to 4 hours in advance, and the temperature rises to room temperature before use. Otherwise, if the insulin is just taken out of the refrigerator, it is directly loaded into a drug storage device. After a few hours, the temperature will rise, and the gas dissolved in the insulin solution will run out and even go to the catheter.

In addition, in order to avoid accidental infusion of insulin, before replacing a new drug device, the infusion device must be disconnected from the puncture site. Please check the reservoir before going to bed at night to determine that there is enough insulin to use the next morning. So as not to hear the insulin alarm because of deep sleep.
