Device: MiniMed 770G Insulin Pump

High Sensor Glucose (SG) Settings alert you when your SG:

  • is rising rapidly (Rise Alert)
  • is approaching your high limit (Alert before high)
  • has reached your high limit (Alert on high)

Remember, the Sensor feature must be turned On before you can set any High settings.

High Limit
Your high limit is the value your other high SG settings are based on. Your high limit can be set from 100 to 400 mg/dL.

You can set a different high limit for up to eight time segments throughout the day or night.

Your high limit is not the same as your glucose target. Your healthcare professional will help you determine the setting that is appropriate for you.

Alert before high
When Alert before high is on, the pump alert tells you any time the SG is predicted to reach the high limit. This makes you aware of potential highs before they occur.

Time before High
Time before high is only available when using Alert before high. Time before high determines when you will receive an Alert before high.

You can set a time between 5 and 30 minutes.

Alert on high
When Alert on high is on, you will receive an alert any time your sensor glucose reaches or exceeds your high limit. This allows you to evaluate and treat if necessary as instructed by your healthcare professional.

Rise Alert
The Rise Alert will notify you when your sensor glucose is rising rapidly. This alert helps you understand how your sensor glucose values are affected by things such as eating meals or when forgetting to give a bolus.

The Rise Alert can be set to alert if sensor glucose is rising as follows:

  • ↑ - SG is rising at a rate of 1 mg/dL per minute or more
  • ↑↑- SG is rising at a rate of 2 mg/dL per minute or more
  • ↑↑↑ - SG is rising at a rate of 3 mg/dL per minute or more
  • Custom – SG is rising at the rate that you set, from 1.0 to 5.0 mg/dL per minute

Rise Limit
The Rise Limit determines when you will receive a Rise Alert. Rise Limit is only available when using the Rise Alert.

High Snooze
High Snooze is available once you have set your High Settings. High Snooze allows you to set the amount of time that you want to wait before you are reminded that an alert condition still exists. After a high alert is received and cleared, you will be alerted again only if the high alert condition still exists after the snooze time you have set.
