Comparison of a perfusion syringe (Mill Hill Infusor) and a glucose-controlled insulin infusion system in the regulation of diabetes mellitus.Horm Metab Res Suppl. 1979HM
In a preliminary study, three unstable, juvenile diabetics were first connected to a glucose-controlled insulin infusion system (Biostator), and subsequently to a portable infusor (Mill Hill Infuser) for continuous subcutaneous insulin application. The levels of glucose and several other metabolites as well as the insulin requirement were compared. As a tentative conclusion, continuous subcutaneous application is recommended (1) for long-term therapy when several daily doses are required and (2) after metabolic compensation with a Biostator, but before conventional therapy.
