An insulin pump is a medical device that is inserted below the skin with allows insulin to be delivered from a reservoir on a continuous basis rather than all at once with an injection. As such, fast acting insulin (typical of that used in medical emergencies) can be used instead of slow acting insulin. This allows the patient more control over exercise and meal times compared to an injection regimen.
