Frequently Asked Questions - Insulin Pumps
The Insulet OmniPod system is compatible with rapid-acting insulin. Specifically, the analogs NovoLog/NovoRapid, Humalog, Fiasp and Apidra have been tested and found safe for use with the OmniPod.
Your OmniPod can hold up to 200 units of insulin. However, it requires a minimum of 85 units to start operating.
A fill needle and syringe is included in the OmniPod’s package for this purpose. Do not use other needles or filling devices with the OmniPod.
The Pods for the OmniPod has been found to function as intended as deep as 25 feet underwater for up to an hour; however, the PDM is not waterproof. To ensure the system’s adhesive does not detach, regular breaks are recommended while swimming. Due to the effects of high temperatures on insulin, the OmniPod should not be used in hot tubs.
Most of the differences between these systems are based on the newer technology used in the latter. The OmniPod DASH features a touchscreen interface, Bluetooth connectivity, Wi-Fi enabled, iOS compatibility, ability to set zero basal rates, battery is rechargeable, must be within 5-50 feet of the pod to deliver boluses, and other additional features.
No - the OmniPod does not feature continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) capabilities. That said, it can be used with external CGM systems.
The OmniPod and other products in the OmniPod line are manufactured by Insulet Corporation, a medical device business based in Massachusetts.
The OmniPod is a type of insulin pump - like other devices in that category, it is a computerized device capable of delivering insulin doses throughout the day. The primary difference between the OmniPod and “traditional” insulin pumps is the former product’s innovative “Pod” form factor.
When you use an OmniPod, you’ll use your Personal Diabetes Manager to program your insulin delivery settings. Those settings are then wirelessly sent to your Pod, which will administer insulin doses accordingly.
