If you need juvenile Diabetes medical equipment and supplies, RSVP Home Care can supply what you need. There are various supplies for children with type 1 diabetes including essential blood sugar testing gear and insulin delivery systems.
Accurate blood sugar testng and the administration of insulin are two of the most important things anyone with type 1 diabetes can do. Managing your child’s diabetes requires having the diabetic supplies you need to check blood sugar levels several times each day, and then adjust the amount of insulin your child needs accoriding to the results.
You will need test strips to use when testing your child’s blood sugar level. These are a thin piece of plastic made especially for this purpose. Your child’s blood will interact with the test strip. Next you will need a hand-held meter or other monitor to read the strip and display your child’s glucose levels. You can depend on RSVP to provide you with quality strips and juvenile diabetes medical equipment that your child needs.
There are a variety of syringes on the market today to deliver insulin. Your doctor will help you choose the best one for your child.
An insulin pump is a battery-operated computer about the size of a cell phone that you can clip on your waistband, belt or other clothing. It also holds insulin that can be refilled as needed. A flexible tube leads from the pump to an infusion set, which is inserted beneath your child’s skin. This is where the insulin is delivered. Insulin is delivered throughout the day, depending on the amount and type of insulin your doctor prescribes. The infusion site can be used for up to three days before you need a new site which is more comfortable for your child.
The infusion set includes flexible tubing, connectors and cannula, which is a small, soft tapering tube you insert under your child’s skin. There are a variety of infusion sets to choose from including: metal or Teflon. There are also a variety of needle sizes, tubing lengths and connecting and disconnect mechanisms and inserters.
Insulin pens look like a pen and delivers insulin using disposable needles and cartridges of insulin. Some of the cartridges are replaceable and some not. All of the pens use replaceable needles. Dosing with an insulin pen is easy.
There is a vast array of diabetic accessories on the market, including insulin refrigerators, syringe holders, insulin pen coolers and injection aids.
