Event Description
A couple hours after changing an infusion site for my medtronic minimed insulin pump, my blood glucose crashed from 140 mg/dl to less than 20 mg/dl in less than twenty minutes, resulting in a hypoglycemic seizure and hospitalization. My employer maintains its own emt staff because of our remote work location. Had our emts not found me and provided over 200 grams of dextrose to bring me out of the seizure. I would have died. I suffered severe muscle damage from the intensity of the seizure. This muscle damage resulted in rhabdomyolysis and temporary kidney and liver damage. When i called medtronic on (b)(6) 2015 to report the issue, i was transferred to technical support and i was blamed for my own seizure. Today ((b)(6) 2017), medtronic issued an urgent voluntary recall for the infusion sets. I strongly encourage you to consider enforcing a non-voluntary recall to prevent anyone from experiencing the medical trauma that i experienced.
