Trial Time


Ping and 522
Originally uploaded by lilituc.

Anyone else feel like pump technology hasn't advanced all that much recently? I've had my 522 for about 3.5 years now, and the new "upgrade" seems to be features that other pumps already had before I got mine.

So I'm looking into other options. I feel like I know way too much about other pumps and why they wouldn't work for me. The Nipro Amigo is cute, but only has one infusion set available, and I'm allergic to it. The Accucheck Spirit comes with a PDA, which I love, but it doesn't talk to the pump; it just calculates your dose because there's no bolus calculator on the pump itself.

So I'm doing a trial of the Ping.

I'll be interested to hear your thoughts about the Ping. Unfortunately the choices between pumps is minimalist right now. I've got a deltec cozmo that has a year to run on its warranty. At this stage I may be using it past that date, waiting for something better to arrive.

The Nipro uses standard lied lock sets, giving you many options, even if that company only makes one set.

Oh, sure. I meant that Nipro only has FDA approval for one set to be used with it.
