Abstract

Insulin pump therapy or continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion is becoming more common. Nurses can expect to encounter a growing number of children who have insulin pumps and an increasing number of questions concerning the general application and efficacy of these pumps. Therefore it is important that pediatric nurse practitioners, school nurses, and pediatric nurses understand insulin pump therapy and its role in the overall treatment of children with diabetes. This article describes the advantages, disadvantages, and alternatives to insulin pump therapy. It also discusses staff expertise, patient selection criteria, and patient education as elements of successful insulin pump management.
