In brief: TPN insulin
Once Insulin is given IV (like tpn) it lasts the same (minutes) no matter what type it is.
Usually regular (human r) Insulin is added because it is the cheapest insulin., so why spend more on more expensive Insulin when they all will last for the same timings and have exactly the same effects.
