I am thinking of swapping over my 4 year old son's minimed pump for an omnipod. I sometimes have to give a corrction at night and worry that if he was lying on the pod would it still pick up a signal from the PDM?
Any answers would be much appreciated. Thanks
Like was said, just hold the pdm close to your son and it should work, currently I think it's a range of 5 feet. If he happens to be completely covering it and it's not connecting it will let you know and all you need to do is move closer, maybe lift him a bit to get a connection but as soon as it connects you can lay him back down and walk away. It does just take a second. Can't imagine it being a problem. Good luck, I think you will be happy with the pod!
I do that all the time. In fact, just last week I bolused my son through the bathroom wall...
I almost shot milk out my nose on that one! :)
We've bolused through a bedroom wall before too! However, if it doesn't get a signal in a few tries then it can fail the pump - I don't risk it anymore - hate it when I get the death BEEEEEPPPPPPPPP .....
I didn't think it would work but I had already pushed confirm when he darted in the bathroom and closed the door. I was prepared to just throw it to him. Not a practice we use often, lol!!
The new PDMs also have a significantly increased range than the current models.
