I am traveling out of town this weekend and was wondering if anyone has had issues with airport security giving them trouble about the OmniPod. With other pumps, it’s obvious that there’s tubing connecting you to the pump. However, my concern is that the OmniPod does not look like a traditional pump – no tubing – and might not be as readily recognized for what it is.
I’m not so much concerned about setting off the metal detectors, but rather the fact that I will be carrying 8 or 9 pods with me (I am out of town for a week and want to make sure I have enough pods to cover malfunctions). I will have them in my carry-on luggage, as I do not feel comfortable putting them in my checked luggage, which can be lost.
Should I get a note from my doctor explaining that I am using the OmniPod, or might it just be enough to bring a product brochure so TSA personnel can see what it is?
