You would do anything to avoid dangerous nighttime lows, including waking up 2 to 3 times a night to do fingerstick tests. This can be exhausting, and only provides a brief snapshot of glucose levels, leaving most of the night filled with uncertainty.
Finally, help has arrived. Introducing mySentry, the first remote glucose monitor. mySentry provides valuable nighttime glucose information for a wide range of insulin pump and Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) users—and their loved ones. It can be especially helpful for monitoring children overnight, when they are most vulnerable. With up-to-the-minute sensor glucose values and alerts displayed remotely, you can now feel more confident managing your child's diabetes overnight.
Placed conveniently at your bedside, mySentry displays your child's important insulin pump and glucose information throughout the night, making it available just a glance away.
The mySentry system consists of a Monitor with a color screen, a power supply, and an Outpost that transmits information from your child's Medtronic MiniMed Paradigm® REAL-Time Revel™ System to the mySentry Monitor.
The Outpost enables you to keep watch from up to 50 feet away or greater. This means that your child can be sleeping in one room while you are in another room, observing their insulin pump and sensor information in real-time without having to get up and check the pump itself.
mySentry receives and sounds the same alerts that your child gets on his or her Minimed Paradigm® REAL-Time Revel™ System so that you can take action sooner to avoid dangerous lows or highs. These include predictive alerts, which can warn you up to 30 minutes in advance of low or high events, and threshold alerts that tell you when your child's preset low or high glucose levels have been reached.
Alarms and alerts sound loudly to awaken deep sleepers, and the volume can be adjusted to your desired level. For added convenience, mySentry also features a snooze button that provides you the option of temporarily silencing alarms.
Intuitive buttons and a touch-sensitive display allow you to easily navigate through the various settings and status screens.
Adjustable brightness allows you to dim the monitor appropriately for nighttime monitoring, and the built-in nightlight can help you find your way in the dark.
For those occasions when you don't want to display sensitive glucose information, you can turn on a privacy screen to hide information from broader view while still enabling you to receive important alerts.
mySentry™ easily integrates with the Paradigm Revel System, continuously relaying insulin pump and CGM information. Find out more about the Paradigm Revel System.
