Medtronic Insulin Pumps & Infusion Sets

The Medtronic MiniMed Paradigm Insulin Pump is designed to deliver insulin to diabetes patients, making daily injections unnecessary. Serious injury and death, from potentially defective or malfunctioning parts of the device, are being reported to the FDA.

MiniMed Paradigm Insulin Pumps are designed to deliver insulin continuously, taking the place of daily, manual injections of insulin.

MiniMed insulin pumps are about the size of a cell phone and can be worn on a belt or placed in a pocket. The pump connects to the patient’s body with an infusion set. The set consists of a needle going into the abdomen, secured by an adhesive pad and connecting to the pump with a thin plastic tube. The infusion set tubing is designed to be replaced every several days. However, increasing incident reports of blocked sets carry the potential for under or over delivery of insulin.

Too much or too little insulin may cause fainting, seizure, or coma. Here are the warning signs for both:

  • Rapid heartbeat
  • Shaking, trembling
  • Sweating
  • Double vision/blurry vision
  • Headache, confusion
  • Mood shifts, ranging from angry to nervous
  • Fatigue, interrupted sleep
  • Pale or tingling skin

Seek medical attention immediately if you suspect you have a problem with your insulin pump and are experiencing any of these symptoms.
