We just chose the Animas Ping and my 11yr old son will start to pump class on the 22nd of this month. We are really looking forward to the freedom of not having to constantly inject him at every meal. He chose the green pump!

yes you still get a basal
you always get a basal unless you suspend it

Comment by Diane McDowell on September 3, 2013 at 1:02pm

Does anyone know if the Ping continues with the Basal delivery while it is administering a combo bolus?

Oh no problem, Siri, I didn't take it personally. It's just something I react strongly to!

Comment by Siri on September 1, 2013 at 5:49am

Sorry I´m late with this reply, but I would really like to apologize to you Zoe. I didn´t mean to be rude or offensive in any way, I just saw that the @-sign was used when other people commented here and thought that was the way the communication went.

Comment by Zoe on August 23, 2013 at 1:46pm

And yes, a lot of social media seems like people talking "at" each other, not with each other!

Comment by Zoe on August 23, 2013 at 1:45pm

Thanks for understanding, gw. I do get a bit strident at times in my attempts to stand against the forces of social media that seem to be invading other areas of our lives. People in my life are often surprised at how much I utilize my computer as they think of me as a Luddite. Then again, perhaps computers are "old school" now in this age of "devices".

I find the Audio Bolus to be convenient as it can be programmed to deliver in .5 units, although I make an effort to only use it if I have just tested my BG within the last 15 minutes. I never thought of using it as an escape from the menu maze, as I never pressed it from the menu, only the main screen.

I should mention that I have had button failure on a couple of Pings, even though I use the remote more often than the pump. The Audio Bolus button never failed, it was the up, down and ok buttons that stopped working.

So taken the stress of these buttons in any way possible has to be a good idea, and this is another reason why I like this shortcut.

I think I agree with you Zoe about the @ sign. To me, @ suggests speaking "at" someone, although convenient (?) I think it can sound rude although that is presumably not the intention. Then again I don't use twitter!

I do prefer speaking/writing communicating "with" or "to" someone however. :)

Thank you gw for clearing this up.

Yes, it´s the audio bolus I refer to as "sound bolus", din´t know what it was called in english.
