Entering a BG value in SmartGuard™ technology
Device: MiniMed™ 780G insulin pump
From time to time, you may need to enter a blood glucose (BG) value when the pump requires it to stay in the SmartGuard™ feature. There are two ways to enter a BG value when using the SmartGuard™ feature: manually entering a BG value or entering a BG value using the compatible Accu-Chek® Guide Link meter.
A BG can be manually entered via the SmartGuard™ bolus feature for ease of use, especially when a bolus is needed. If you are not using the SmartGuard™ bolus feature, the Blood Glucose screen lets you manually enter a BG value as well. When you access the Blood Glucose screen, it does not show any previously entered manual or linked meter BG values.
If a BG value is received from a linked meter, that value will immediately display in a separate BG meter screen and you will be prompted to confirm the BG value.
When you enter a BG while in the SmartGuard™ feature, a correction bolus may be suggested.
To manually enter BG readings:
- From the Home screen, press and select .
- Select Enter BG.
Enter a BG value.
The entered BG will also be used to calibrate the Guardian™ 4 sensor if between 50-400 mg/dL and the Guardian™ Sensor 3 if between 40-400 mg/dL.
