We’re thrilled to introduce our new video series, MiniMed FUNdamentals, to help answer some common questions about MiniMed 530G with Enlite in real-life scenarios! We’ve rounded up the D-Force to help. They’re real Medtronic Diabetes customers just like you – just a little more, er, animated. Each person in the D-Force represents one of the personalities from the D-Type quiz: Busy Bee, Adventurer, Champion, D-tective, and Trendsetter.
In this video, the MiniMed D-Force, Trendsetter Kelly and Busy Bee Cara, walk Adventurer Ryan through how sensor insertion techniques and taping tips can impact your sensor readings.
We had a blast shooting voiceovers with our MiniMed Ambassadors, and creating a special series of animations just for you. Let us know what you think in the comments below!
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION
– 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.
– Successful operation of the insulin infusion pumps and/or continuous glucose monitoring systems requires adequate vision and hearing to recognize alerts and alarms.
Medtronic Diabetes Insulin Infusion Pumps
– Insulin pump therapy is not recommended for individuals who are unable or unwilling 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.
Medtronic Diabetes Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) Systems
– 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 treatment.
– Insertion of a glucose sensor may cause bleeding or irritation at the insertion site. Consult a physician immediately if you experience significant pain or if you suspect that the site is infected.
