In the event of an insulin pump failing, or being stolen or lost, things will be much less stressful and easier to manage if you are prepared.
Consider the following:
Do you have Novorapid or Humalog penfill cartridges or flexpens?
Do you have a prescription (in date) for intermediate or long-acting insulin (e.g. Levemir,Lantus?)
Do you know how to calculate doses if you need to revert back to injections?
Do you upload regularly and/or have pump settings/rates recorded somewhere to enter into a new pump should it be required?
If required, these things should be discussed during clinic to ensure you're prepared in case of pump failure. This may occur on weekends or at night which can cause added stress. Being prepared with the necessary supplies and information is paramount to help manage your child's BGL's until a replacement pump is organised.
