Enlite How To: Inserting The Sensor

Enlite How To: Inserting The Sensor | The LOOP Blog

Today, Michael walks you through a live demonstration of inserting the new Enlite sensor. With the improved design of the new Enlite serter, the needle is completely hidden and inserted at a 90 degree angle. All you need to start is alcohol swabs, the Enlite glucose sensor, Enlite serter, sensor over tape, and the MiniLink transmitter. Have questions after watching the video? Let us know in the comments below.


Medtronic Diabetes insulin infusion pumps, continuous glucose monitoring systems and associated components are limited to sale by or on the order of a physician and should only be used under the direction of a healthcare professional familiar with the risks associated with the use of these systems. MiniMed 530G with Enlite is intended for the delivery of insulin and continuous glucose monitoring for the management of diabetes mellitus by persons 16 years of age or older who require insulin.

Pump therapy is not recommended for people who are unwilling or unable to perform a minimum of four blood glucose tests per day. Insulin pumps use rapid-acting insulin. If your insulin delivery is interrupted for any reason, you must be prepared to replace the missed insulin immediately.

The information provided by CGM systems is intended to supplement, not replace, blood glucose information obtained using a home glucose meter. A confirmatory fingerstick is required prior to making adjustments to diabetes therapy. MiniMed 530G with Enlite is not intended to be used directly for preventing or treating hypoglycemia but to suspend insulin delivery when the user is unable to respond to the Threshold Suspend alarm and take measures to prevent or treat hypoglycemia themselves.
