Product Description

Review

It is a great introduction to the field, as well as an excellent review for healthcare providers with some experience with pumps (Ronald N. Cohen, University of Chicago Medical Center, Doody's notes)

Just a book on basics of insulin pumping, generalised information for everybody and anybody.
I think most people going on to a pump will not find this book has any great depth of detail in it. I have passed it on to a retired nurse who is going to be support for me when going on to my pump next week, but it is only a brief version of other books, anbd I certainly did NOT think it was worth the money I paid for it.
