Insulin pumps are medical devices used for the administration of insulin in the treatment of diabetes. This method, also known as continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion (CSII) therapy, has been used alongside traditional insulin infusion by syringe. With the passing of years, technology made these devices more and more sophisticated and available for everyone.
This book provides students with a highly authoritative overview on the use of insulin pumps. The reader can travel through the history of pumps, starting from the first archaic devices to the smartest and automatic pumps of the new millennium. Students can also examine the role of insulin pumps in ameliorating the monitoring of diabetes during decades: how the continuous evolution of constructive strategies positively contributes to the lifestyle of people affected by diabetes, improving glucose monitoring and preventing complications induced by bad glycemic control. Many useful clinical cases have also been exhaustively illustrated, in which CSII was applied (diabetic patients, non-diabetic patients, use of CSII at home or during hospitalization, etc.), so as to give students an initial guideline for the use of this therapy.
