I’ve been pumping with Medtronic pumps for 8+ years and have just received my new Animas. I don’t have any training scheduled and really don’t think I need it. I’ll be using the same type of infusion sets although the reservoir set-up will be different.
What do all of you think about training, especially those of you who have switched brands of pumps?
I have a routine endo appointment this week and was planning to stay on my Medtronic pump until the appointment so she would have some Carelink data. However, I’m a little worried that if I haven’t started the Animas pump yet she might suggest that I get trained on it. Frankly I don’t think that she’d really care, but it’s her job to recommend the “safe” way to transition to a new pump.
