Field safety notice for Medtronic 600 series pumps
« on: 24 May 2017, 10:25:21 AM »
Field safety notice for users of Medtronic 600 series pumps (including MM640G). Just in time for the holiday season!

A rare thing to do with buttons sticking if air pressure changes significantly (eg during landing or take off). But it looks like the pressure involved can be released by opening the battery compartment - probably a good idea to take a spare battery with you on flights?

You have a mental picture of a planeload going to a diabetes convention, whose pumps all alarm at the same moment - not so bad during landing maybe but on take-off ....  LOL
