Luckily, the pod empties slowly and gives off audible clicks as the plunger moves. I'm used to hearing the occasional click as it gives my basal dosage. I'd be suspicious enough if it starts clicking off an entire pod full of insulin. I keep my pdm handy at all times, so I could check to see what's going on. I have no proble with ripping off a pod full of insulin if it's malfunctioning or hacked.
Still scary though and it really does depend on me paying attention to what's going on.
I guess you would know then. I have head people complain about the Ping being noisier than other pumps, it really was not that noticeable to me. If I wasn't paying attention, then it would be pretty easy to do.
Ha! I just told someone (not here) that I'd really be more concerned that if I were in an accident, and they had to cut my clothes off, that the ER would lose my transmitter by not seeing it. I don't think the warranty would cover that, and who knows if the hospital would take responsibility.
In my other post to you, I wrote "This just reinforces my thoughts, that I will NEVER use a pump." I think that if I really wanted to pump, the article wouldn't scare me away. Or maybe I'm just too tired to think straight.
At least we won't have to worry about you getting done in by your pump. Although having it on while you are umping might not be the safest time - I would imagine some people get a little bent out of shape over some calls.
