How Does An Insulin Pump Work? - Manipal Hospital

This animated video provides a clear understanding of the use of an insulin pump for people with diabetes mellitus, who require frequent blood glucose and sometimes a glucose pump. An insulin pump is a battery powered device used to deliver fast acting insulin to the body through a catheter, replacing the need for periodic injections. To help keep glucose levels consistent, the diabetic insulin pump can be scheduled ahead of time for continuous insulin delivery 24 hours a day. An insulin infusion pump would adjust the blood sugar immediately. You can also program the insulin infusion device to administer larger doses of bolus insulin just before eating to accommodate our carbohydrate cover that you are about to eat. Insulin travels from the pump through an infusion set that includes a flexible tube attached to a soft plastic cannula inserted just below the skin. Using a blood glucose pump or pump for patients with diabetes can help a person lead a more flexible lifestyle while helping to maintain stable glucose levels. Studies show that regular monitoring and maintenance of glucose levels help prevent long-term complications such as blindness, kidney disease, heart disease, and long-term stroke.
