After having used the Animas Ping with remote for 7 months, I’ve got several minor gripes with the system.
ALL pump functions should be accessible via the meter remote (setting a temp basil, turning off the “reminder” x hours after a bolus are two that come to mind. Currently, you have to do these from the pump itself.)
Change the pump software so that a BG after a meal is logged as “after”. Example… my breakfast time period is from 5 to 9 AM. If I eat breakfast at 5:30, then do a finger stick at 9 AM, the logbook will show “before breakfast”. In addition, if I eat a “snack” at 9 AM, the snack will be logged as “breakfast”.
The software should be changed so that the logbook will record a meal as a “snack” when a bolus is given after one has been given for a meal…
I’m curious to hear your thoughts on improvements…and also hope that somehow, someone at Animas will see these comments.
Despite the above, I find the Ping system easy to use, and wouldn’t think of switching to another pump.
