NOTE: An Insulin flow blocked alarm occurs when insulin cannot be pushed through the tubing or cannula. If this alarm occurs, make sure your reservoir is not empty and check the tubing for kinks, knots or other obvious blockages.

If you detect an issue and are able to resolve it, check BG and select Resume Basal. If an Insulin flow blocked alarm occurs again, follow the steps on the screen and select Rewind to change your reservoir and infusion set.

If you are unable to detect an issue, follow the steps on the screen and select Rewind to change your reservoir and infusion set.
