It still ain't Wilford Brimley. Here I am in the second of our 3-part series on pumping. This one gives you an overview of different pump models.
When I watch these clips, I find that I look a little stiff here. Not nearly as smooth as, say... Nicole Johnson Baker (I wish). But hey, we started taping at 8am East Coast time, which was 5 o'clock in the morning for me. I'm lucky I could make out the teleprompter at that hour!
Anyway, in case you missed the intro on how these videos came about or why I did them, have look back at yesterday's post.

Amy,I think you looked great in the video. You can't compare yourself to Nicole (if I did, I would never leave my house).One small thing to note in your video, Animas was proud to introduce the Animas2020 in 2007 (color screen, waterproof) and then build on those features by launching the OneTouch Ping glucose management system in 2008. OneTouch Ping is the first full-feature insulin pump that wirelessly communicates with a blood glucose meter-remote. Using the OneTouch Ping meter-remote, a person can calculate insulin doses and opt to wirelessly instruct the pump to deliver them without touching the pump at all, giving patients more freedom and flexibility in using their insulin pump. Hope that helps clarify!Can't wait for the next installment of AmyTV!Best to you in 2009,Melissa
Another hit! And . . . I don't think you look too stiff. Good eye contact with the camera while holding and describing a pump, but don't be afraid to glance down at the pump, and then go back to looking into the camera even more than you are doing. That will come across as a bit more natural. Perhaps that is what you are sensing/feeling. In production, it's always a delicate balance, and I think you are doing a great job!TimPS - I love the screen on my One Touch Ping Pump! Now, if they would just do something about the screen on the wireless meter! Are you listening Animus/LifeScan??? Please!!!????? :-)
I am not a pump user, but I thought the Omnipod doesn't require that long tubing?
