Device: MiniMed™ 780G insulin pump
When in SmartGuard™ technology, a current blood glucose (BG) or sensor glucose (SG) reading is used to determine the bolus amount. A carb amount can also be entered for a food bolus. The SmartGuard™ bolus feature then calculates the bolus amount needed to cover the meal, the correction, or both.
If the BG or SG is under 120 mg/dL, or if the bolus recommended is zero after the pump accounts for active insulin, or if the SmartGuard™ feature estimates that the current basal insulin delivery is enough, no correction is recommended.
Please note: A paired Accu-chek® Guide Link meter sends BG readings directly to the pump. If an Accu-chek® Guide Link meter is not used to check a BG, the BG value must be manually entered in the SmartGuard™ bolus screen.
To deliver a bolus with the SmartGuard™ feature:
- From the Home screen, press and select .
Enter your Carb amount, in grams. The screen indicates the amount of the calculated bolus.
- 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.
Here's a tip: You can also access the Bolus screen by pressing the down arrow from the Home screen.
*This is the SmarGuard™ feature Home screen with Guardian™ 4 sensor. If using the Guardian™ Sensor 3, your Home screen may look slightly different.
