The Artificial Pancreas Book Summary
The Artificial Pancreas presents research on the top issues related to the artificial pancreas (AP) and its application to diabetes. AP is a newer form of treatment to inject insulin accurately and efficiently, thereby significantly improving the patient's quality of life. By connecting a continuous glucose monitor (CGM) to a continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion using a control algorithm, AP delivers and regulates the most accurate amount of insulin to maintain normal glycemic values. Featuring chapters written by the world's leaders in AP research, this book provides readers with the latest studies and results to assist and improve the lives of patients living with diabetes.
