Those interested in trying the Disetronic H-Tron insulin pump using saline can do so by making an appointment prior to the conference. Disetronic will be bringing different infusion sets to wear and will offer their new Ultraflex infusion set for saline trials. A Disetronic Certified Diabetes Nurse Educator will be conducting these saline pump trails. For more information or to make an appointment, contact Meredith Rivers at (800) 915-3698 ext. 5705 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
