Careline:

Medtrum's A6 TouchCare System

incorporates a tube-free insulin patch

pump, a CGM sensor and includes a

Predictive Low Glucose Suspend (PLGS)

mechanism - a semi-closed loop system

which can help prevent hypos. Insulin

delivery is automatically suspended when

the sensor glucose is predicted to reach

the low limit in a set period of time. Basal

insulin will be automatically resumed

when the sensor glucose is within the

target range.

Relatively thin, small and light, the A6

TouchCare insulin pump has a 200-unit

insulin reservoir, infusion set, pumping

mechanism, and power supply. Basal

patterns are stored in the pump, delivery

continuing even when the PDM is out

of range. Easy to operate, with remote

bolus dosing an option, it can be worn in

the shower, when swimming and doing

other exercise. The corresponding A6

TouchCare CGM has a seven-day sensor

life and uploads data automatically to the

Medtrum software, all managed by the

TouchCare (Personal Diabetes Manager,

or PDM) connected to the sensor and

pump via Bluetooth. Using the PDM you

can see sensor information at a glance

including trend arrows with customizable

reminders and alerts.

The PDM controls the pump bas,

which is the patch part that is attached

to the body, and which comes in four

colours (pink, blue, green, lavender). The

pump base is the 'brains' of the system

and has a four-year guarantee. It does

not get thrown away after every use but

is recharged.

Roche Diabetes Care

A survey of Accu-Chek insulin pump

users revealed that nine out of ten

people found their diabetes easier

to manage using pump therapy. The

survey, carried out by Roche Diabetes

Care, was completed by 244 people

who had been on pump therapy (AccuChek Combo or Insight) for a minimum

of one year. More than two thirds

of respondents found the following

elements of their diabetes management

had improved since switching to pump

therapy: No injections (76%); Easier

mealtime management (74%); Improved

HbA1c (70%); Gave them more stable

glucose levels (68%); Enabled discreet

management of diabetes (66%).

People were also asked how they

found the transition from pen to pump. As

many as two thirds stated that it was easy

or very easy, with almost three quarters

reporting they would have preferred an

earlier transition. The survey also sought

to identify what influences pump choice.

Respondents were asked what was

important to them when choosing a new

pump. Answers included: the ability to

use a pump discreetly, the pump using

pre-filled cartridges, the ability to integrate

a continuous glucose monitoring (CGM)

function, and having a built-in bolus

advisor.
