SmartGuard™ Auto Mode Bolus


Device: MiniMed™ 770G Insulin Pump

Delivering a bolus in SmartGuard™ Auto Mode is similar to delivering a bolus using the Bolus Wizard™ feature in Manual Mode. The Bolus feature in Auto Mode requires you to enter either carbs or a blood glucose (BG) value. You may also choose to enter both. Auto Mode then calculates the bolus amount needed to cover the meal or correction. Once you confirm this amount, Auto Mode will deliver the bolus.

To use the Auto Mode Bolus feature:

  1. Press Select and select Bolus.

  2. If you use an Accu-Chek Guide Link meter, go to step 3. Otherwise, enter your BG value. You can enter a value within the range of 20 to 600 mg/dL.


    Enter Value

  3. Enter your Carb amount in grams. If you choose not to enter a Carb amount, go to step 4.

  4. Select Next. The screen indicates the amount of the calculated bolus.

  5. Select Deliver Bolus.


    A screen appears briefly to indicate the bolus delivery has started. Then, the Home screen appears and shows the progress of the bolus delivery.
