Medtronic's MiniMed 640g insulin pump

has a colour screen which shows the

status of how much insulin is left in the

reservoir, how much battery power, and

time since the last infusion set change.

The system comes with SmartGuard

technology that works in combination

with Medtronic CGM Enlite sensors.

SmartGuard is a closed-loop system

whereby insulin delivery is automatically

suspended by the pump if the CGM

measures a low glucose reading. Based

on settings inputted specifically for the

individual concerned, the pump stops

insulin delivery when readings are low and

by doing so can avert a hypo.

Trials have proven that this system

has been helping diabetics to make it

through the night without having a hypo.

The model is waterproof and comes with

a Bayer Contour Next Link II blood test

meter that also doubles are a remote

bolus controller (so it's possible to

administer a bolus using wi-fi from the

meter to the pump).

The Minimed 640g system, also

referred to as a Sensor Augmented

Pump (SAP), is one step closer to the

ideal of a closed loop insulin delivery

system (or artificial pancreas). Speaking

of which, very newly available in the UK

is Medtronic's MiniMed 670g, which is

a closed loop insulin delivery system

featuring SmartGuard HCL (hybrid closed

loop) algorithm. There will be a full report

on the 670g in the next issue of the

magazine.
