Dual-rate continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion was performed with a specially adapted Mill Hill Infuser. The infuser delivers 2 rates, a slow rate of ca. 50 microliter/h and an eightfold higher rate, designed to cover the increased requirement during meals. The high rate is engaged by pressing a button on the side of the pump, and returns automatically to the basal level after 17 min. Insulin is delivered to the subcutaneous side by a nylon cannula.
