I've always used a Medtronic insulin pump, and until recently the style of the pump and the menus have not dramatically changed. Yes, new features have been added and I've learned to use them. But overall, it still felt like the same familiar pump that I'm comfortable with. I can do things like quick bolus or clear alarms without even looking at the screen.
That is all about to change!! I will (hopefully) soon be moving from my 530G pump to the new 670G. This is the hybrid closed-loop pump so I'm very excited. And this pump has a whole different look and feel than the pumps I've used. That's exciting too, but also a little worrisome for me. I know that I hate change at first, and I always find the learning curve miserable.
So, my question is for those who have switched to significantly different pumps than the ones they were used to - what tips do you have for me? What got you through as you learned to do everything in a different way? How did you cope with having to really think about things that you used to be able to mindlessly take care of?
