    Are you talking about the ones that took the plunger out of the syringe? Or did they change the pods themselves now? What's an occultation pod?

    What's new about them? Are you talking about Omnipods?

    Yes omnipods

    They fixed the occupation detection on the pods. So that you would not lose as many pods.

    Additional monitoring has been added to the pod occlusion algorithm to confirm an actual occlusion or other non delivery of insulin versus a rise in pressure. When it senses a rise in pressure it will monitor for 30 minutes instead of alarming for deactivate

    How do you know they are updated? Was there a note on the box? We received a box yesterday and nothing looks different. Maybe we were already using the new ones.

    I'm guessing occulation and occupation both autocorrects for occlusion?

    I don't think occulation is a word. When I google it all that comes up is this thread and an episode of "The Stain" on FX. :)
