New and Improved Insulin pump
Transcript of New and Improved Insulin pump
Why Is Our Design Better?
Standard Insulin Pump
Improved from the standard insulin pump!
By: Brittany Knott, Faith Gordon, Broc Peterson, & Nabila Putri
Releases insulin at a steady measured and continuous dose (the "basal" insulin).
Releases insulin as a surge ("bolus") dose, at your direction, around mealtime.
Still have to monitor blood glucose levels; primarily manual.
Still a continuous dose, however, our insulin pump has a digital voice (similar to that of siri's) that instructs the diabetic what steps they need to take when they are going into hyperglycemic or hypoglycemic levels to reach relatively normal blood glucose levels.
Along with the instructions, the pump will administer insulin when needed, and has a gradual color change (which indicates the blood glucose levels).
Hyperglycemic levels- ranges from a very light red to bright red
Hypoglycemic levels- ranges from a pale green to deep green
When blood glucose levels are reaching dangerously high or low levels, the pump will make a constant beeping sound to warn the diabetic (to prevent a diabetic emergency).
