[Adjustment of unstable diabetics with a simple insulin infusion program].
Schweiz Med Wochenschr. 1978 Nov 18; 108(46):1803-6.SM

Abstract

In view of the importance of knowing exactly how much insulin is required by diabetics who are difficult to control with subcutaneous insulin, an insulin infusion program has been tried in such patients. The apparatus, which was produced by Siemens as a prototype, works according to the following simple and flexible principle: During the day a basal rate of insulin is continuously infused. During the three main meals an additional rectangular insulin infusion is initiated by turning a knob. After an hour the apparatus switches automatically back to the basal ratio. We have used this machine in 13 patients who are fully mobile. 11 of them showed an almost ideal blood sugar profile after 4 days. After switching back to subcutaneous insulin 8 of these 11 patients did better than before but not as well as on the insulin infusion program.
