New portable insulin pump discussed at Diabetis Clinic An Insulin Pump, con- ceived first by Dr. John Par- sons and Dennis Rothwell at the Mill Hill Laboratories of the British National Institute of Health, is now available in the United States, according to Dr. O. Charles Olson of the Deaconess Hospital Diabetes Education Center in Spokane. Dr. Olson, who specialized in the treatment and care of diabetes for over twenty-five years, ex- plained the pump and its uses at a Diabetes Education Clinic held May 14 at the Community Medical Center in Brewster. Dr. Olson explained to ap- proximately 70 diabetics and their families, the new developments in diabetes and insulin, diabetic diets, insulin (including equip- ment, injections, mixtures and home glucose monitoring), diabetes and obesity, oral medication, fats in the diet, and the im- portance of urine testing in patients. He was assisted by Mrs. Judy Davis, R.N., B.A. Coordinator for the Diabetes Education Center of Deaconess since 1973, and Dietitian, Mrs. Meri Ander- son, R.D. who is a Board Member of the Inland Em- pire Diabetes Association and has been a guest lec- turer for the Inter-Collegiate Center for Nursing Education in Spokane, Washington. According to Olson, many insurance companies will pay up to eighty percent of the cost of an Insulin Pump. He also said approximately twenty-seven are now being used in the Spokane area. "The pump system more closely approximates the tmman  in iis func- tion of continuous insulin delivery varying according to blood sugar needs," ac- cording to an advertisement, "it consists of a battery, electronic circuit, motor and gear box, syringe mover (or pump)." The pump gives in- sulin at a slow, fixed, con- stant rate throughout the day and night, mimicking the way a normal pancreas would function. It is attached with a 3/8 in- ch to 3/4 inch needle inserted by the patient into their sub- cutaneous tissue. The needle is attached to tubing which connects to a syringe on the pump. The insulin pump is worn at all times except when bathing, showering or performing strenuous exer- cise such as jogging, swim- ming, etc. Current models weigh about 10 ounces (the size of a small transistor radio or calculator). Most used areas use the same sites for injection as nor- really used, such as thighs, hips or abdomen. Home giueose monitoring is essen- tial to the successful use of the pump and it is recom- mended that a patient be proficient in monitoring before obtaining an insulin infusion pump. The pump should not interfer with work or normal daily activities. An exercise program can be worked out with the patient's physician. There should be no change to the diet, and any initial weight gain will .level off shortly after begin- ning use. The pump takes the place of daffy injections. A patient will need to learn some simple calculations regarding the concentration of insulin, converting insulin units to those measured by the pump, also learn to mix regular insulin and saline together and fill the syringe. The pumps are recom- mended for the strongly motivated patient, one that is mature (not necessarily determined by age of patient) and one who demon- strates having made every effort to get maximum con- trd of the diabetes on a well managed program, in- cluding following diet metiquiously, regular exer- cise, having taken two doses of insulin per day and mental tranquility. He/she must demonstrate that monitoring has been done successfully on their own. Four physicians and five nurses from the Brewster area attended the clinic as time permitted throughout the day. Materials were handed out regarding the Deaconess Hospital Diabetes Education Center schedule, medic alert jewelry, a dmbetes glossary, a sugar content chart, a diabetic guide for eating out and a heart attack probability score sheet. A question and answer session followed the seminar. As a continuing education program, the Inter Collegiate Nursing Education Association put on a Diabetes Workshop Friday, May 15 at the Grange Hall in Okanogan. This workshop was spon- sored by the Washington State Nursing Association. Attending from Brewster were Esther Ringer, Dave Hellyer, Kay Hansen and LuAnn Lassiter. More in depth explanation of the pump and its uses took place during this session for medical personnel. Noxious weed program available The cost share program for noxious weeds is still available. The Noxious weed Control Board will pay up to two-thirds of the cost for con- trolling noxious weeds in Okanogan County. The weeds on the list are diffuse knapweed, harnaby thistle, must thistle, and morning glory on range land. Cost share forms are available from the County Weed Supervisor's Office, County Commissioners Of- rice, and Extentions Office all located in the Courthouse at Okanogan, Washington.
