Annotation
does not include conventional insulin injections ( = INSULIN /‌admin + specific injection term); for implantable insulin infusion devices coordinate IM with INFUSION PUMPS, IMPLANTABLE (NIM); insulin patches: index INSULIN /‌admin (IM) + ADMINISTRATION, CUTANEOUS (NIM)
Scope Note
Portable or implantable devices for infusion of insulin. Includes open-loop systems which may be patient-operated or controlled by a pre-set program and are designed for constant delivery of small quantities of insulin, increased during food ingestion, and closed-loop systems which deliver quantities of insulin automatically based on an electronic glucose sensor.
