Got a basic loop up and running. Producing nice results so far. If daytimes around the house go well, will try overnights this weekend.

Anyone remember which versions of non-us Medtronic pumps work? Getting a q on Fbk and realizing I don't remember and it's not in our docs. Will update the docs if someone else remembers :)

554? Great. (That's the one in q). Thanks. And anyone else please Lmk if you know of other varieties working from outside us.

Paul Andrel
@stavlor
Oct 01 2015 20:33 UTC

Dana Lewis
@danamlewis
Oct 01 2015 20:33 UTC
@oschumac Which version is your 554? Earlier than 3.1?
Chris Oattes
@cjo20
Oct 01 2015 20:33 UTC
the pump they sent me at the start of last month, in the UK
Dana Lewis
@danamlewis
Oct 01 2015 20:34 UTC
@stavlor That does or does not work?
Ben West
@bewest
Oct 01 2015 20:34 UTC

Paul Andrel
@stavlor
Oct 01 2015 20:34 UTC

So probably easiest to have people look for PC Connect. If it's absent, they're good.

@cjo20 So you got a 554 eu version in the UK recently? Siobhan recently got a new pump - the 540g I think.. which is fully locked down apparently
Her 722 is pretty much on the way out. I'm worried it's going to die just after we get all this stuff working 100% smoothly :(
Ben West
@bewest
Oct 01 2015 22:23 UTC
why?
is it cracked/beaten?
Oskar Pearson
@oskarpearson
Oct 01 2015 22:25 UTC
A little bit of both. Microfractures around the battery compartment. Her last pump was well and truly cracked by the time we replaced it
No major cracks
It's just a bit worrysome to have no backup / replacement lined up
Ben West
@bewest
Oct 01 2015 22:25 UTC
we need to buy up world supply of 22's

I can house them, but I'm really bad at the paper/mailing and stuff
I'd be willing to chip into fund to purchase all we can
Oskar Pearson
@oskarpearson
Oct 01 2015 22:28 UTC
It'd be interesting to see if the EU versions don't have locked firmware
Ben West
@bewest
Oct 01 2015 22:28 UTC
they do now, but it took a lot longer to take affect than in US
in US FDA forced them to do a recall and prevented them from selling pumps with the "debugging controls open"
no one forced them to do that outside US, so they took their time replacing it as they saw fit

I don't see any pumps second hand on ebay here . I've had a look a few times, and have a recurring search. The only thing I found was people selling neoprene bags etc.
Ben West
@bewest
Oct 01 2015 22:29 UTC
ebay is not very good I found
craigslist is ok here
best is...

I got some quotes back from the chinese manufacturers, btw. USD1270. I've asked for additional technical information
Ben West
@bewest
Oct 01 2015 22:30 UTC
nice
I agree, let's just build one
make it work with the common sets out there

Oh cool - that's a great site.
Ben West
@bewest
Oct 01 2015 22:32 UTC
yeah, price is a bit higher on medwow
Chris Oattes
@cjo20
Oct 01 2015 22:32 UTC
@oskarpearson yes, at the start of september, when my old 554 broke
Ben West
@bewest
Oct 01 2015 22:32 UTC
it's a really good indicator of what pumps are "out there"
medtronic et al are collecting all the old ones
Lori
@LoriLori
Oct 01 2015 22:37 UTC
they have Omni PDM hmm, is it reliable site?
Ben West
@bewest
