Why use a Smart Cool'R?
Smart Cool'R is the company that developed a cooler bag, specifically aimed for most insulin pumps currently available.
At temperatures above 25-30 degrees celcius (77-86 fahrenheit), insulin loses its effect and air bubbles may form in the ampoule causing the blood sugar level to rise. This is prevented by constant and preventative cooling, so that fewer fluctuations in blood sugar levels are experienced.
How does the Smart Cool'R work?
By heating up the insulin, air bubbles can form and you could temporarily not receive insulin.
The cooler bag is placed in water in advance so that it is charged. It then cools the insulin pump for a period of 24 hours (depending on the temperature and humidity), on average about 10-12 degrees lower than the body temperature of the wearer. This is done by means of water evaporation.
Using this principle, a constant temperature of the insulin is established. Because of this, the effect of insulin is guaranteed and the chance of air bubble formation is reduced.
The first test results prove that the blood glucose values are more stable.
Pump bags are a handy product, but the Smart Cool'R is multifunctional and can be used 24/7 which means it is a must have!
Directions for use (if cooling bag is used):
Place the cooling bag in cold water for about 45-60 minutes. Distribute the gel crystals evenly between the compartments of the cooling bag. Dry with kitchen paper or a towel. Put the pump in the cooling bag and carry in the waist pouch.
