Insulin pump

Insulin pump  is a semi – automatic device that  continuous subcutaneous insulin or an analogue thereof is administered subcutaneously around the clock.
The insulin pump contains an insulin-filled reservoir with an infusion set at the end of the catheter.  Insulin enters the subcutaneous tissue through a catheter.
The infusion system / catheter should be changed every 2 to 3 days.
