Is the basal amount that is set up on your pump (in my case, .5 per hour) distributed over an hour or at one time in that hour?I hope this is not an ignorant question!Thanks for help!
That's a good question, I believe it's distributed sort of evenly but probably not perfectly? I look at it as being on the technology/ magic frontier, although I'm sure the person who designed it could explain it better than that?
I know that for the Omnipod the basal is distributed evenly over the hour in .05 pulses. So in the case of 0.50 per hour, there would be 10 pulses during the hour, one every 6 minutes. I think other pumps work similarly.
I put my pump up to my ear and can hear it beep every <60 seconds or so. I think it depends on the basal rate.
