Insulin pump is a small and discreet device that delivers a specific amount of insulin through a needle inserted underneath the skin. The insulin pump is integrated with the receiver, transmitter, and a sensor that can be programmed to deliver constant doses of insulin during the day. It delivers and regulates blood sugar level in the body. It consists of a disposable infusion set, a cannula for subcutaneous insertion, a tubing system to connect the cannula with the insulin reservoir, and a disposable reservoir for insulin set.
