Programmed Insulin and 'On-Demand' Insulin
- Basal Rate: This is a programmed insulin rate made up of small amounts of insulin delivered continuously, mimicking the basal insulin produced by the pancreas. You can determine the programmed rate, based on your patient’s needs. This basal rate delivery can also be customised according to specific daily needs and can be suspended or altered for a definite time frame - this is not possible with long acting insulin injections.
- Bolus Dose: This is the additional insulin that can be delivered ‘on-demand’ to match the meal plan or to correct high blood glucose. Insulin Pumps have bolus calculators that help the patients calculate their bolus amount based on settings that are pre-determined by you.
