La Fenice Insulin Pump

La Fenice™ Insulin pump (below we called "La Fenice™" in brief) is a medical aid for treatment of diabetics, mainly suffering from diabetes mellitus. La Fenice™ supplies at certain time intervals basal dose of insulin which covers daily usual need of insulin. To cover food intake so-called bolus doses are applied. It resembles pancreatic secretion which is missing in diabetics.

La Fenice™ pump is small, easy to use and can replace insulin shots for many people using insulin to treat diabetes. The pump's larger three-milliliter (300 units) reservoir is well suited for children, young adults, insulin-resistant Type 1 and Type 2 patients, and women with gestational diabetes. It enhances patient convenience by enabling users to change their insulin reservoirs less often.

It simplifies diabetes management by providing insulin dosing support to patients, making it easier for them to deliver the correct amount of insulin to normalize and maintain blood sugar levels, which helps improve health and quality of life for many patients.

Most people imagine that insulin pump is a device which is carried in backpack and which is horribly uncomfortable - but it is a big mistake. La Fenice™ is a device which weight approximately 70 gramms and is of mobile telephone size; moreover it is very durable and waterproof.

Features

  • The adjustable injection force can keep the transfusion flowing and decrease the possibility of obstruction.
    With the four unique bolus modes, such as normal wave, rectangle wave, triangle wave and double wave, it helps to meet different dietetic needs.
    The minimal injection precision can be 0.004U.
    The cartridge can be positioned automatically and precisely. This function not only makes it more convenient to operate the product but also helps to avoid the possibility of any error or inconvenience caused by the manual position.
    With the use of iron-electric memorizer, data can be stored permanently.
    With the security alarm function when such situation occurs: running out of drug, stopping injection, low battery, obstruction.
Pump Therapy
The insulin pump is a pager-sized, battery-operated device that can be worn on a patient's belt or hidden beneath a layer of clothing. It delivers fast-acting insulin from a reservoir inside the pump to the body through a tiny plastic tube, called an infusion set. Pump therapy more closely mimics the insulin delivery of a healthy pancreas. Unlike insulin shots, a pump automatically delivers a constant rate of insulin around the clock, and users can easily start and stop additional insulin delivery upon demand. The pump supplies at certain time intervals basal dose of insulin which covers daily usual need of insulin. To cover food intake so-called bolus doses are applied. It resembles pancreatic secretion which is missing in diabetics. Pump doses insulin into the organism via so-called infusion set which is connected to pump by cannula. The cannula must be replaced (pricked into another place) every 3-4 days. Infusion set is usually introduced subcutaneously into the belly, gluteus, thighs or upper arms. Mostly analogues of insulin are used in insulin pumps. It can be said that insulin pump is interlink between conventional treatment of Diabetes Mellitus (by insulin pens) and treatment of Diabetes Mellitus by means of "artificial pancreas" - e.g. apparatus which measures glycaemia and applies insulin according to complicated algorithm.
The Mechanics of the insulin pump
The Pump: A battery operated computerized device about the size of a pager that delivers insulin, stores the user specific setting and calculates bolus does.
The Reservoir: A vial, similar to a syringe, that is filled with insulin and placed in the pump.
The Infusion Set: A thin plastic tube connected to the reservoir through which insulin passes. The infusion set has either soft cannula or needle at the end that the user inserts into subcutaneous tissue every 3 days.
 
Advantages of treatment by insulin pump
  1. Lowering of total insulin dose
  2. Life quality improvement
  3. Relative release of diabetic diet and lifestyle
  4. Restriction by hypoglycaemia
  5. No need of perpetual pricking by insulin pens
  6. Better possibility of management of down phenomenon and of other complications caused by diabetes
