Abstract

Insulin infusion pump therapy is a treatment option that facilitates achieving improved blood glucose control and lifestyle flexibility. These advantages are derived from the physiologic mode of insulin delivery and the pharmacologic advantages of using rapid-acting insulin. Patients who are sufficiently motivated and capable can learn to use the pump so that insulin adjustments can be made to compensate for changing circumstances. Although there are potential risks and side effects of using an insulin pump, these can be avoided through proper education and surveillance. The health care provider should be knowledgeable about the management of infusion pump therapy, including assessment of patient capabilities and practices, education, insulin adjustment, and techniques of use. The knowledge assists the health care provider in counseling patients to consider pump therapy and to manage patients already employing this mode of insulin delivery.
