Alert Silence

Device: MiniMed™ 770G insulin pump

The Alert Silence option lets you temporarily silence sensor glucose (SG) alerts. This is useful in situations where you do not want to disturb others, such as when you are in a business meeting or in a movie theater. When using this option, your system still records the time and glucose value for any alerts that occur. You can view this information in the Alarm History screen.

If a glucose alert occurs when you are using the Alert Silence option, the notification light begins to flash and the Sensor alert occurred alert appears to let you know an alert was silenced, but there is no vibration or sound. If you have not cleared the alert by the end of the preset alert silence duration, your pump begins to beep and/or vibrate periodically until the alert is cleared.

To set Alert Silence in Auto Mode:

  1. Press select, select Audio Options and select Alert Silence Options.
