n Your Role: Safely Using the mylife OmniPod
System
Work with your healthcare provider to establish diabetes management guidelines and settings that best fit your needs. These
may include:
Insulin-to-Carbohydrate Ratio (IC): Number of grams of carbohydrate covered by one unit of insulin. For example, if your
insulin-to-carbohydrate ratio is 1:15, then you need to deliver
one unit of insulin to cover every fifteen grams of carbohydrate
you eat.
Correction or Sensitivity Factor: How much one unit of insulin
will lower blood glucose. For example, if your sensitivity factor is
2.8, one unit of insulin will lower your blood glucose by 2.8
mmol/L.
Target Blood Glucose Value: The blood glucose level you want
to achieve. For example, you may want to keep your blood glucose close to 5.6 mmol/L.
Duration of Insulin Action: The length of time that insulin
remains active and available in your body after a correction or
meal bolus.

Introduction
Your individual needs influence the initial settings you and your
healthcare provider will enter into the Personal Diabetes Manager (PDM) during setup (see Chapter 2, Getting Started).
Your healthcare provider must help you enter these initial settings. Soon you will enter and change your own settings with
confidence and ease. The mylife OmniPod System is more userfriendly than most electronic devices you use every day. In fact,
technology is what makes the mylife OmniPod System so easy to
use.
Your healthcare provider is a valuable resource. You will rely on
him or her for a lot of critical information about your mylife
OmniPod System, especially during the first few weeks and
months. When you have questions about diabetes management
after starting on the mylife OmniPod System, do not hesitate to
talk with your healthcare provider. For nonmedical emergencies
or for technical questions about your mylife OmniPod System
setup or operation, you can call Customer Care 24 hours a day, 7
days a week.

CHAPTER 1
Your New mylife OmniPod Insulin Management System
n Insulin Delivery with the mylife OmniPod System
The mylife OmniPod® Insulin Management System is an innovative continuous insulin delivery system that provides all the
proven benefits of continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion (CSII)
therapy in a way no conventional insulin pump can. The System’s
innovative design and features allows you to live your life—and
manage your diabetes—with unprecedented freedom, comfort,
convenience, and ease.
The long-term health benefits of better blood glucose control
are well known. Maintaining near-normal blood glucose levels
can help you live a longer, healthier life with fewer diabetesrelated complications. The mylife OmniPod System also has
many practical, everyday benefits, including convenience, freedom, flexibility, and ease of use.
Continuous insulin delivery at preset rates eliminates the need
for injections and the interruptions that come with them. In addition, with the mylife OmniPod System, insulin delivery can be
changed with the press of a button to adapt to snacks or unexpected changes in daily routine. The mylife OmniPod System is a
great option for people with diabetes who require insulin.
The mylife OmniPod System works much like the pancreas of a
person without diabetes by delivering insulin in two ways:
• A small, constant, background supply of insulin (called a basal
rate) is delivered automatically at a programmed rate, all day
and night.
• An extra dose of insulin (called a bolus) can be delivered
when you need it to match the carbohydrates in a meal or
snack or to correct a high blood glucose.
Continuous insulin delivery most closely mimics the insulin
release of a healthy pancreas. Since the landmark 10-year
Diabetes Control and Complications Trial (DCCT), the longterm health benefits of maintaining near-normal blood
glucose levels have been widely recognized.

n How Does the mylife OmniPod System Work?
The Pod is a small, lightweight, self-adhesive device that you fill
with insulin and wear directly on your body. The Pod delivers
precise, personalized doses of insulin into your body through a
small flexible tube (called a cannula), based on instructions that
you program into its wireless companion, the Personal Diabetes
Manager. The cannula is inserted only once with each Pod.
The Personal Diabetes Manager (PDM) is a wireless, handheld
device that:
• Programs the Pod with your personalized insulin-delivery
instructions
• Wirelessly monitors the Pod’s operation
• Incorporates a FreeStyle blood glucose meter
With just two parts, you’ll enjoy all the functionality and benefits
of continuous insulin delivery and blood glucose monitoring.
Plus you’ll enjoy the safety, convenience, and freedom of:
2
No tubing
There is no tubing connecting the Pod to the PDM. You wear the
Pod comfortably and discreetly under your clothes. You can carry
the PDM separately in a backpack, briefcase, or purse. With the
mylife OmniPod Insulin Management System, you don’t have to
worry about snagging, tangling, or feeling tethered by tubing.
Suggested bolus calculation
Calculating bolus doses has never been easier. After you check
your blood glucose, enter the carbs for your snack or meal. Based
on your individual settings, the System displays a suggested
bolus dose. You can accept the suggestion, change it, or cancel it.
Carb presets
To make carbohydrate counting easier, the mylife OmniPod System includes “carb presets.” You can enter your favorite foods,
snacks, or entire meals as “carb presets.” Presets contain the
grams of carbohydrate in the food item or meal. Next time you
eat this same food, you don’t have to count the carbs; just select
your carb preset and the System does the calculating for you.
The System stores up to 36 carb presets.

Your New mylife OmniPod Insulin Management System

Automated cannula insertion
With the mylife OmniPod System, you don’t have to insert the
infusion set manually or carry around a separate inserter. You simply press a button on the PDM and the Pod’s automated
insertion system safely and consistently inserts the cannula
beneath the skin, virtually pain free. It then begins delivering
insulin according to your programmed basal rate.
Record keeping
Another convenient part of the mylife OmniPod System is record
keeping. Paper charts are useful, but sometimes they can be
inconvenient to carry or use. The data storage system in the
Personal Diabetes Manager (PDM) displays up to 90 days’ worth
of information. This includes blood glucose readings, basal rates
and bolus doses, carbohydrates, and alarms.
A fully-integrated design with blood glucose monitoring
With a fully integrated two-part design, there’s no need to carry
separate infusion sets, reservoirs, or inserters. It’s all integrated
into the Pod. With the PDM, you can check your blood glucose
level using FreeStyle blood glucose test strips, but without the
hassle of carrying a separate blood glucose meter.
If you prefer to use another blood glucose meter, you can enter
the readings manually into the PDM.
Personalizing your System
You can personalize your mylife OmniPod System in other ways,
too:
• Enter and name basal programs
• Name and save temporary basal presets
• Add your own customized reminders
• Enter your name, phone number, doctor’s name and
number, and other emergency information

of safety checks in only a few seconds.
The mylife OmniPod System also performs safety checks on the
PDM. If it detects any problems in the PDM or the Pod—or in
communication between them—it informs you with beeps and
on-screen messages.
Occlusion detection
An occlusion is a blockage or interruption in insulin delivery. If
the mylife OmniPod System detects an occlusion, it sounds a
hazard alarm and prompts you to deactivate and change your
Pod (see Chapter 5, Using the Pod).
A hazard alarm sounds when an average of 3 to 5 units of missed
insulin occurs. This table depicts occlusion detection for
3 different situations when using U100 insulin (Table 1). If an
occlusion is cleared, a volume of insulin could be released. That
volume would not exceed the volume of the programmed
insulin intended for delivery.

At very low flow rates checking your blood glucose
frequently may give you an early indication of an
occlusion (refer to Chapter 9, page 106).
For your safety, the mylife OmniPod System provides a range of
alerts and alarms to tell you that your attention is needed, or to
warn you of hazardous situations.
Confirm on ID screen - alerts/alarms do not show on
PDM until after ID screen is confirmed.
See Chapter 6, Using the Personal Diabetes Manager, for a

CHAPTER 3
Understanding and Adjusting Basal Rates
n What Is a Basal Rate?
A basal rate is a small base or background amount of insulin that
is delivered, at a preset rate, continuously for a specified period of
time.
Even without eating, our bodies need a small, constant supply
of insulin for normal daily living. In people without diabetes, the
pancreas continuously delivers this basal insulin. For people
using the mylife OmniPod® Insulin Management System, the
Pod mimics a healthy pancreas by delivering insulin at the rate
that you’ve programmed into the Personal Diabetes Manager
(PDM).
Approximately 50% of a person’s total daily insulin dose
typically comes from basal insulin delivery; the remaining 50% typically comes from bolus doses (see Chapter 4,
Understanding and Delivering Bolus Doses).
n Personalized Basal Programs
Insulin needs vary throughout the day. Therefore, most people
set their basal rates to deliver slightly more or less insulin at
16
certain times. For example, one person may need to deliver a
higher rate of insulin during the early morning and a lower rate
during the late evening. A basal program describes the amount
of insulin to be delivered during an entire 24-hour period.
A basal program contains at least one basal rate for the 24-hour
period, but for most people it will be broken into several time
segments, or basal segments, each delivering a different rate of
insulin. A sample basal program with three basal segments
might be:
12:00 am–8:00 am
0.60 U/hr Between 12:00 am (midnight)
and 8:00 am, the Pod delivers
0.60 units of insulin per hour.
8:00 am–3:00 pm
0.80 U/hr Between 8:00 am and 3:00 pm,
the Pod delivers 0.80 units of
insulin per hour.
3:00 pm–12:00 am
0.70 U/hr Between 3:00 pm and 12:00 am
(midnight), the Pod delivers 0.70
units of insulin per hour.
OmniPod ENT450UK.book Page 17 Tuesday, April 19, 2016 11:36 PM
Understanding and Adjusting Basal Rates
In addition to normal daily changes, insulin needs can vary with
different routines or days of the week. For example, regular
school or workday routines may differ from weekend routines,
and insulin needs may differ, too. With your healthcare provider,
you will decide on the basal rates that best match your lifestyle
and insulin needs. You will enter at least one basal program (your
Basal 1 Program) into your PDM during the setup process (see
Chapter 2, Getting Started). You can add other programs later as
you fine-tune your System settings or when your needs change.
You can also create temporary basal presets to use on occasions
when you need to adjust your basal rate for a short period of
time. See “Temporary Basal Rates and Presets” later in this
chapter.
Create a basal program
The Personal Diabetes Manager can store up to 7 different basal
programs. Each program can contain 24 rates, programmed in
half-hour increments. Once you enter a basal program into the
PDM, you only need to press a few buttons to pick the program
you want. The Pod continues to deliver insulin at those rates until
you change that program or switch to another one.
Check with your healthcare provider before adjusting these settings.

What is a temporary basal rate?
A temporary basal rate lets you adjust your basal rate for a predetermined period of time.
On occasion, you may need to change the active basal rate for
only a short time. For example, if you are going cross-country
skiing for several hours, you may want to lower the basal rate
during and after you exercise. This is called a “one-time temporary basal rate.”
Some temporary changes are easy to predict and respond to.
They happen routinely and you may know from experience how
they affect your insulin needs. For example, you might take the
same exercise class twice a week for a few weeks or months, or
join a summer soccer league. For women, a monthly hormonal
change that affects blood glucose is an example of predictable
change. To easily handle predictable, short-term changes, you
can “preset” a temporary basal rate, so it is ready whenever you
need it. The PDM can remember up to 7 temporary basal presets.
OmniPod ENT450UK.book Page 23 Tuesday, April 19, 2016 11:36 PM
Understanding and Adjusting Basal Rates
You can set a temporary basal rate for a duration of 30 minutes to
12 hours. Once the time limit is reached, the Pod automatically
returns to the active basal program. Pod and PDM do not
need to be close to each other.
When using units per hour, the OmniPod System allows you to
set temporary basal rates from 0.0 U/hr, up to your max basal
rate. When using percent rate, you can set temporary basal rates
from Off to +95% of your active rate, as long as the temporary
rate is less than or equal to your max basal rate. Another limit on
the temp basal rate when configured in % is that the rate
cannot be decreased such that the resultant flow rate will be
less than 0.05U/hr. Example – if flow rate is 0.10U/hr, you
can’t create a temp basal of -60%.
See the sections below on creating, enabling, cancelling, and
changing temporary basal presets.
Enable a one-time temporary basal rate
1. On the Home screen, use the Up/Down Controller buttons
to choose Temp basal, then press Select.
2. If you have created temp basal presets, choose [enter manually] from the list, then press Select.
If you have not created any temp basal presets, the PDM skips
this step.

n Maximum Basal Rate
What is the maximum basal rate?
The maximum basal rate is a safety feature that limits the basal
rate (U/hr) that the Pod can deliver. Once you enter it into the
PDM memory, the maximum applies to both regular basal programs and temporary basal rates.
You and your healthcare provider will enter an initial maximum
basal rate into your PDM during the setup process (see Chapter
2, Getting Started). You can change it later as you fine-tune your
System settings or when your needs change.
Change the maximum basal rate
1. On the Home screen, use the Up/Down Controller buttons
to choose Settings, then press Select.
2. Choose System setup, then press Select.

CHAPTER 4
Understanding and Delivering Bolus Doses
n What Is a Bolus?
A bolus is an extra dose of insulin, delivered when needed to:
• Match the carbohydrates (sugar content) in a meal or snack—
also known as a meal bolus
• Lower blood glucose when it gets too high—also known as a
correction bolus
This extra dose is in addition to the basal rate delivered throughout the day and night (see Chapter 3, Understanding and
Adjusting Basal Rates).
The size of a bolus dose depends on the current factors at the
time you deliver the bolus:
• Your blood glucose level
• Your insulin-to-carbohydrate ratio
• Your correction factor
• Your target blood glucose and correct above threshold
• The amount of insulin on board (IOB) (active insulin) from previous meal and correction boluses
28
• Your correction threshold, the BG level above which you
would like to take insulin to reduce an elevated blood
glucose
• Your activity level
• The type and amount of food you eat
With the mylife OmniPod System, it is easy to adapt to any situation. With just a few button presses, you can adjust to
unexpected or changing insulin needs.
During setup, you entered bolus dose settings in the PDM (see
Chapter 2, Getting Started). You can adjust these settings as you
fine-tune your System or when your needs change (see Chapter
6, Using the Personal Diabetes Manager).
Check with your healthcare provider before adjusting these settings.

n Bolus Dose Options
n Suggested Bolus Calculator
So that you can fully enjoy freedom and flexibility in your life, the
mylife OmniPod System offers the following bolus dose options:
Suggested bolus calculator: When you want the System to
calculate your suggested bolus, based on your personal settings,
your current blood glucose, the amount of insulin still active in
your body from previous boluses, and the grams of carbohydrate (“carbs” for short) you are about to eat.
Normal bolus: When you need a dose of insulin right away to
cover a meal or snack you are about to eat or to reduce a high
blood glucose level
Extended bolus: When you are eating high-fat or high-protein
foods (which take longer to digest and are slower to affect blood
glucose).
The suggested bolus calculator lets the mylife OmniPod System
recommend your bolus based on your personal settings. To
review or adjust these settings—including turning the suggested bolus calculator On or Off—see Chapter 6, Using the
Personal Diabetes Manager.
If the suggested bolus calculator is turned On, the System
automatically calculates a bolus dose. If the suggested bolus
calculator is turned Off, you must enter a bolus amount
manually.
When using the extended bolus function the user
should check their blood glucose levels more frequently to avoid hypoglycemia or hyperglycemia.
The bolus features in the mylife OmniPod System are
designed for flexibility and convenience. You can easily
transition from a normal to an extended bolus with just a
few button presses.
The suggested bolus calculator will display a suggested bolus dose based on the settings you have
programmed into the PDM. Check with your healthcare provider before using this feature or adjusting
these settings.
If a suggested bolus exceeds the max bolus you
have set, the suggested bolus screen displays
“Exceeds max bolus.” (Figure 4-1 on next page.) If you
select Extend or Enter, the following confirmation is
displayed “WARNING: Exceeds max bolus of nn.nn U.
Accept this bolus and temporarily override your
limit?” (Figure 4-2 on next page). Consult your
healthcare provider before changing the setting.

Figure 4-1
Figure 4-2
How a suggested bolus is calculated
The suggested bolus calculator estimates the suggested amount
for each bolus portion based on your personal settings and
inputs.
The settings used to calculate a suggested bolus are:
• Target BG
• Insulin-to-carbohydrate (IC) ratio
• Correction factor (CF)
• Duration of insulin action
30
The inputs used to calculate a suggested bolus are:
• current BG
• carbs entered
• insulin on board (IOB)
A suggested bolus can have a correction bolus only, a meal bolus
only, or both.
Correction bolus: The correction bolus, as the name suggests,
“corrects” for a blood glucose (BG) level above your target BG
level.
Meal bolus: The meal bolus provides insulin for the carbohydrates you enter into the System.
Insulin on board (IOB): Insulin on Board (IOB) the amount of
insulin still working in your body from previous meal and correction boluses. The amount of time the insulin remains “on board”
or “active” depends on what you set for your duration of insulin
action.
The mylife OmniPod System can only subtract insulin on
board (IOB) from a suggested bolus when the current BG
is known.
For formulas for each element of the suggested bolus calculation, detailed examples, and additional guidelines of how the
suggested bolus calculator works, see the Appendix.

Understanding and Delivering Bolus Doses
n Deliver a Normal Bolus
Deliver a bolus when suggested bolus calculator is On
1. After you check your blood glucose, the PDM displays the
results (Figure 4-3; see the end of Chapter 7, Checking Your
Blood Glucose). Press Next.
Figure 4-3
4
A blood glucose value is current for up to 10 minutes
after it is tested. So you can wait up to 10 minutes,
restart the bolus process, and not have to retest your
blood glucose in order to include it in the suggested
bolus calculator.
When your blood glucose result reads “HIGH” or
“LOW,” the suggested bolus calculator will be
disabled.
If you use a separate blood glucose meter—not the
Personal Diabetes Manager (PDM)—you will need to
enter your blood glucose manually. On the Home
screen, choose Bolus, then press Select. Use the Up/
Down Controller buttons to enter your current BG
value, then press Yes if you want this value to be used
by the suggested bolus calculator.
You can also enter a BG manually by choosing the
More actions menu, then choosing Add BG Reading. See the end of Chapter 7, Checking Your Blood
Glucose.

Using the Pod
n The Pod Change Process
Replace the Pod at least once every 48–72 hours or up to 200
units of insulin (2–3 days). Refer to the insulin labeling and follow your healthcare provider’s directions for how often to replace
your Pod. If you like, you can set the Personal Diabetes Manager
(PDM) to notify you when it is time to replace the Pod (see Chapter 6, Using the Personal Diabetes Manager).
WARNINGS!
•
•
42
Do NOT apply or use a Pod if the sterile packaging is open or
damaged, or if the Pod has been dropped after removal from
the package as this may increase the risk of infection. Pods
are sterile unless packaging has been opened or damaged.
Do NOT apply or use a Pod if it is damaged in any way. A damaged Pod may not work properly.
• To minimize the possibility of site infection, do NOT apply a
Pod without first using aseptic technique. This means to:
• wash your hands
• clean the insulin vial with an alcohol prep swab
• clean the infusion site with soap and water
• keep sterile materials away from any possible germs
• Do NOT use a Pod if you are sensitive to or have allergies to
acrylic adhesives, or have fragile or easily damaged skin.
• Check often to make sure the Pod and soft cannula are
securely attached and in place. A loose or dislodged cannula
may interrupt insulin delivery. Verify there is no wetness or
scent of insulin, where as may indicate the cannula has dislodged.
• Do NOT apply a new Pod until you have deactivated and
removed the old Pod. A Pod that has not been deactivated
properly may continue to deliver insulin as programmed, putting you at risk of over infusion and possible hypoglycemia.
OmniPod ENT450UK.book Page 43 Tuesday, April 19, 2016 11:36 PM
Using the Pod
•
Because insulin Pods use only rapid-acting insulin, users are
at increased risk for developing hyperglycemia (high blood
glucose) if insulin delivery is interrupted. If it is untreated,
severe hyperglycemia can quickly lead to diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA). DKA can cause symptoms such as breathing difficulties, shock, coma, or death. If insulin delivery is interrupted for
any reason, you may need to replace the missing insulin usually with an injection of rapid-acting insulin. Ask your healthcare provider for instructions on handling interrupted insulin
delivery.
Gather equipment and supplies
Gather the following before you begin:
• A vial of rapid-acting U-100 insulin (See the warning on
page x of the Introduction for a list of insulin’s approved for
use in the mylife OmniPod System.)
5
If you are a first-time mylife OmniPod System user,
your healthcare provider will guide you through the
steps for initializing and applying your first Pod. Do
NOT attempt to apply or use a Pod until you have
been trained by your healthcare provider. Use of the
System with inadequate training or improper setup
could put your health and safety at risk.
Deactivate the current Pod
1. On the Home screen, use the Up/Down Controller buttons
to choose More actions, then press Select.
2. Choose Change Pod (Figure 5-1), then press Select.
3. Press Confirm (Figure 5-2) to deactivate the current Pod.
Figure 5-1
Figure 5-2
NEVER use insulin that is cloudy; it may be old or inactive. Failure to use rapid-acting U-100 insulin, or using

Using the Pod
Fill a new Pod
Figure 5-7
5
Figure 5-8
Before filling a Pod, ensure that no other Pods are
being activated within 24 inches of your PDM.
Before filling a Pod with insulin, ensure that the Pod
is above 10° Celsius. If the Pod has been exposed to
temperatures below 10° C, then allow the Pod to be
brought back to room temperature before filling it
with insulin.
1. Use an alcohol prep swab to clean the top of the insulin vial,
then discard the prep swab.
2. Securely twist the fill needle onto the syringe (Figure 5-7).
3. Pull outward to remove the protective cap from the needle
(Figure 5-8). Save the cap; you will need it later.
Use care after removing the needle cap and
exposing the fill needle.
Only use room temperature insulin when filling
the Pod.
4. Determine the amount of insulin you need to insert into the
Pod. For example, if you will use this Pod for 48 hours, you
need enough insulin to last you 48 hours. Your healthcare
provider will help you determine the correct amount.
The Pod requires a minimum of 85 units of insulin to
begin operation.
The Pod can deliver up to 200 units of insulin.
5. Draw air into the syringe up to the amount of insulin you
want.
45
OmniPod ENT450UK.book Page 46 Tuesday, April 19, 2016 11:36 PM
5 Using the Pod
6. Insert the needle into the insulin vial and inject the air. This
makes it easier to withdraw insulin from the vial.
7. Turn the vial and syringe upside down. Withdraw insulin from
the vial into the syringe, expelling any and all air or air bubbles. Fill at least to the MIN (minimum) fill line (Figure 5-9).
Refer to the Care Giver Guide as an additional reference.
Any air bubbles present in the fill syringe could be
transferred into the reservoir during the fill process.
The pod does not purge air that is introduced into the
reservoir by way of customer fill.
Failure to expel air bubbles from the fill syringe
may result in interrupted insulin delivery.
Make sure there is no air in the syringe before
attempting to fill a Pod with insulin.
Figure 5-9
Figure 5-10
Fill
port
8. Remove the needle from the vial and insert it straight down
into the insulin fill port on the underside of the Pod
(Figure 5-10).
Be sure to only insert the fill syringe into the fill
port. Attempting to inject insulin into any other
location on the Pod may result in damage to the
Pod or loss of insulin.
To ensure proper fill, do not insert the fill syringe
at an angle into the fill port.
46
OmniPod ENT450UK.book Page 47 Tuesday, April 19, 2016 11:36 PM
Using the Pod
Do not use any other type of needle or filling
device besides the syringe provided with each
Pod.
9. Depress the syringe plunger to completely empty the insulin
into the Pod. The Pod will beep, indicating that the System is
ready to proceed to the next step.
NEVER use a Pod if you hear a crackling noise or
feel resistance when you depress the plunger.
These conditions can result in interrupted insulin
delivery of insulin.
10. Remove the needle from the insulin fill port. The port is selfsealing; insulin will not leak after the needle is removed.
11. Place the protective cap back on the needle and remove the
needle from the syringe.
Do not insert the fill syringe into the fill port more
than once.
NEVER inject air into the fill port. Doing so may
result in unintended or interrupted insulin delivery.
5
The fill syringe is intended for single use only and
should be used only with the mylife OmniPod
System.
12. After you fill the Pod, it will beep twice. After hearing the
beeps, PDM and Pod should be adjacent and touching,
either in or out of tray to ensure proper communication
during priming (Figure 5-11). Press Next.
As a safety feature, the communication distance between the Pod and PDM is reduced during activation.
Once a Pod is primed and communicates with the
PDM, the full communication range is restored and
the Pod can receive commands only from that PDM.
13. The Pod will only beep if you have filled it with at least 85 units
of insulin. If you have filled the Pod with more than 85 units
and still do not hear the 2 beeps, please call Customer Care.
14. The System performs a series of safety checks and automatically primes the Pod (Figure 5-12). Once complete, the PDM
beeps, letting you know that the priming and safety checks
were successful.

5 Using the Pod
Figure 5-11
Figure 5-12
Select the infusion site
Before applying a new Pod, you must first select an appropriate
infusion site. Due to ease of access and viewing, the abdomen is
often used. Your healthcare provider may suggest other potential sites that, like the abdomen, typically have a layer of fatty
tissue, such as the hip, back of upper arm, upper thigh, or lower
back (Figure 5-13 and Figure 5-14 on the next page).
Avoid sites where belts, waistbands, or tight clothing
may rub against, disturb, or dislodge the Pod. Also
avoid sites where the Pod will be affected by folds of
skin.
After filling the Pod with insulin, you should complete
the Pod change process within 60 minutes. As a
reminder that the Pod has been filled, it will beep
every 5 minutes to indicate that time is passing. If you
do not set up the Pod within 60 minutes, you must
deactivate and discard it.
Once a Pod is activated and communicates with the
PDM, it can only receive commands from that PDM,
not from any other.
48
Change the site each time you apply a new Pod. A
new infusion site should be at least 1" away from the
last site. (Using the same location repeatedly may
reduce insulin absorption.)
Do NOT apply the Pod within 2" of your navel or over
a mole or scar, where insulin absorption may be
reduced.

5 Using the Pod
To help avoid condensation from occurring in the
viewing window, make sure both your Pod and your
insulin are at room temperature.
Prepare the infusion site
You can reduce the risk of infection at the infusion site by following aseptic technique and disinfecting the infusion site. Before
applying a new Pod, always:
1. Wash hands with soap and water.
2. Use soap to wash the infusion site.
Apply the new Pod
Prepare the Pod for applying to your infusion site:
1. To remove the needle cap on the underside of the Pod, place
your thumb on the bottom (flat edge) of the needle cap and
pull it upwards (Figure 5-15). The needle cap will snap off.
Figure 5-15
Figure 5-16
Antibacterial soap may irritate skin, especially at the
infusion site. Ask your healthcare provider how to
treat any skin irritation.
3. Dry the site with a clean towel.
4. Use an alcohol prep swab to disinfect the infusion site. Start at
the center of the site and gently rub outward in a circular
motion. Never use lipid balancing to disinfect the infusion
site.
5. Let the site air-dry thoroughly. Do not blow on the site to dry
it.
50
2. Verify that the Pod is ready to be applied:
• Pod is clean and dry.
• Adhesive pad is intact and undamaged.
OmniPod ENT450UK.book Page 51 Tuesday, April 19, 2016 11:36 PM
Using the Pod
•
Pod is intact and in its original condition.
Verify cannula does not extend
beyond adhesive backing once
needle cap is removed.
If Pod is accidentally dropped, discard it; sterility may be
compromised.
If you are unsure the Pod is ready to be applied to the site,
press “Discard” and do not use it (Figure 5-14). Select a new
Pod.
5
For the Pod to work best, apply it:
a. Crosswise or at a slight angle on your abdomen, hip, lower back, or buttocks (in Figure 517)
b. Up and down or at a slight angle on your
upper arm or thigh (in Figure 5-17)
c. At least one inch away from the last site

Do not remove the needle cap until you are
instructed to do so by the PDM. When you remove
the needle cap, a drop of insulin may be visible at the
end of the cannula or in the well.
3. Using the pull tabs, remove and discard the white paper
backing from the adhesive tape (Figure 5-16).
4. Apply the Pod to the prepared infusion site. Press firmly to
secure it to your skin.
b.
51
OmniPod ENT450UK.book Page 52 Tuesday, April 19, 2016 11:36 PM
5 Using the Pod
The Pod’s adhesive keeps it securely in place for up to
3 days. However, if necessary, several products are
available to enhance adhesion. Ask your healthcare
provider about these products. Avoid getting body
lotion, creams, or oils near the infusion site; these
products may loosen the adhesive.
Insert cannula and begin insulin delivery
1. To insert the soft cannula, press Start (Figure 5-19).
Figure 5-19
Figure 5-20
5. After you securely apply the Pod, press Next (Figure 5-18).
The adhesive is designed for one-time use. Once
removed, a Pod cannot be reapplied.
If you are applying a Pod in a place that does not have
a lot of fatty tissue or is very lean, pinch the skin
around the Pod (Figure 5-20) after you press Start
and hold it until the cannula inserts. Occlusions may
result in lean areas if you do not use this technique.
The soft cannula is tinted light blue to improve visibility
at the insertion site.
52
OmniPod ENT450UK.book Page 53 Tuesday, April 19, 2016 11:36 PM
Using the Pod
The Pod automatically inserts the soft cannula below your
skin. It takes a few seconds to complete the insertion process.
Once the cannula is inserted, the Pod delivers a prime bolus to
fill the cannula with insulin (Figure 5-21).
Figure
Figure5-21
5-17
Figure 5-22
5
Check the infusion site after insertion to ensure
that the cannula was properly inserted. You
should check your blood glucose 1.5 to 2 hours
after each Pod change and check the infusion site
periodically. If the cannula is not properly
inserted, hyperglycemia may result. Verify there is
no wetness or scent of insulin, where as may indicate the cannula has dislodged.
If you observe blood in the cannula, check your
blood glucose more frequently to ensure insulin
delivery has not been affected. If you experience
unexpected elevated blood glucose levels,
change your Pod.
Once the soft cannula is inserted, the PDM indicates that the Pod
is active (Figure 5-22).
You will hear a click when the cannula inserts.
Figure 5-22 also displays a reminder to check the infusion site
and cannula. Make sure the Pod is securely attached to your
skin. You can see the cannula through the small viewing window on the Pod.
To help avoid condensation from occurring in the
viewing window, make sure both your Pod and your
insulin are at room temperature.
Condensation may occur in the viewing window,
from sweating and perspiration.

ton, you will turn off the PDM instead.) Or, from the Home
screen, press Status.
The PDM automatically checks the status of the Pod. The PDM
then displays the current reservoir volume, PDM battery level,
last blood glucose, last bolus dose, active basal program, and any
alarm conditions. See Chapter 6, Using the Personal Diabetes
Manager, for details of what you see on the Status screen.
Once a Pod is activated and communicates with the
PDM, it can only receive commands from that PDM,
not from any other.
If the Pod goes into hazard alarm condition and the PDM is
unable to communicate with it to turn off the alarm, you can turn
it off manually. See the end of Chapter 10, Alerts and Alarms, for
instructions.
n Suspend Insulin Delivery
Sometimes you may need to briefly stop insulin delivery (for
example, when editing an active basal program or changing the
time or date). The mylife OmniPod System lets you suspend all
insulin delivery for up to 2 hours. While in suspension, the Pod
beeps once every 15 minutes, reminding you that insulin delivery is suspended.
5
Extended boluses and temporary basal rates will be cancelled when you suspend insulin delivery.
1. On the Home screen, use the Up/Down Controller buttons
to choose Suspend; then press Select.
2. Enter how long you want to stop all insulin delivery, from 30
minutes to 2 hours, in 30-minute increments (Figure 5-25),
then press Enter.
3. Press Confirm to confirm that you want to halt all insulin
delivery (basal and bolus). The PDM beeps and an on-screen
message lets you know that insulin delivery is indeed suspended (Figure 5-26).
The Pod beeps every 15 minutes until the end of the suspension period. The Status screen shows INSULIN SUSPENDED
until you resume insulin delivery (see “Resume Insulin Delivery” on the next page).
4. At the end of the suspend time, a Pod Advisory alarm occurs
(Figure 5-27).
If a temporary basal or extended bolus is in process, the
menu item will read Suspend/cancel instead, and
options for cancelling these programs also appear in the
menu. If these options appear, choose Suspend insulin
delivery.
At any time during a suspension period, press Resume
to resume the basal program that was running when you
suspended insulin delivery.

Do not apply a Pod to any area of the skin with an active
infection. If you are unsure whether to use a specific site, ask
your healthcare provider.
At least once a day, use the Pod’s viewing window to check
the site for signs of infection and to confirm that the soft cannula is securely in place.
Be aware of the signs of infection, including pain, swelling,
redness, discharge, or heat at the site. If you suspect an infection, immediately remove the Pod and apply a new one in a
different location. Then call your healthcare provider.
Change the Pod as instructed by your healthcare provider.
n Get the Most From Your Pod
Avoid extreme temperatures
The Pod’s operating temperature is between 4.4° C and 40° C.
Under normal circumstances, your body temperature will keep
the Pod well within this range.
2. Press Confirm to restart the basal program for that time segment.
n Avoid Infusion Site Infections
•
Always wash your hands and use the aseptic technique to prepare the infusion site before applying a Pod.
57
OmniPod ENT450UK.book Page 58 Tuesday, April 19, 2016 11:36 PM
5 Using the Pod
Do NOT expose a Pod to direct sunlight for long periods of time. It is recommended that you remove your
Pod prior to using hot tubs, whirlpools, or saunas.
These conditions could expose the Pod to extreme
temperatures and may also affect the insulin inside
the Pod.
Remember to check your blood glucose levels frequently
before and after removing the Pod. Check with your
healthcare provider for guidelines on removing the Pod
for extended periods.
Insulin degrades at high temperatures and will
freeze near 0° C. Check the insulin manufacturer’s
instructions for use.
Water and your Pod
The Pod is waterproof up to a depth of 7.6 meters for up to 60
minutes (IPX8). After exposure to water, rinse off the Pod with
clean water and gently dry it with a towel.
58
Do not expose your Pod to water at depths greater
than 7.6 meters or for more than 60 minutes. Check
often to make sure the Pod and soft cannula are
securely attached and in place. If the cannula is not
properly inserted, hyperglycemia may result. Verify
there is no wetness or scent of insulin, where as may
indicate the cannula has dislodged.
The PDM is not waterproof. Do not place it in or near
water.

Using the Personal Diabetes Manager
n The ID Screen
Figure 6-1
Figure 6-2
When you first turn on the PDM, it displays the identification (ID)
screen (Figure 6-1), which allows you to identify that the PDM is
yours. You can personalize the ID screen by adding your name
and choosing its color. You must acknowledge the ID screen
before you can use the PDM.
It is important that you always identify the PDM as
yours before you use it.
n The Status Screen
When a Pod is active and the PDM is turned on, the PDM establishes communication with the Pod to obtain a status check.
During the status check, the PDM collects information from the
Pod about bolus deliveries, active basal programs, and Pod expiration. The information obtained is then displayed in the status
screen, which shows the System’s current operating status.
The Status screen (Figure 6-2) displays:
• Time, date, and result of last blood glucose checked or
entered manually
• Time, date, and total amount of last bolus delivered

If a Pod has not yet been activated (as in during Pod
changes), the screen displays “No active Pod. Would you
like to activate a Pod now?” (See Chapter 5, Using the Pod,
for details on activating a Pod.)
Insulin gauge and display
One of the important icons on the Status screen is the insulin
gauge at the top of the screen. It indicates how much insulin is
left in the Pod’s reservoir. As the reservoir empties, the icon
changes to indicate the amount of insulin remaining.
60
Next to the insulin gauge, the PDM displays the number of units
remaining in the Pod. As long as more than 50 units remain, the
gauge displays “50+ U.” Once the reservoir volume drops to 50
units, the gauge counts down unit by unit. When the volume
falls below 5 units, the display changes to “LOW.”
Regularly checking the insulin gauge enables you
to plan Pod changes easily. For example, if you
know you will need approximately 20 units during
your work day and the insulin gauge shows only 17
units remaining, you can either take a new Pod with
you or change it before you leave for the day.

n Alerts and Reminders
In addition to automatic safety alarms (see Chapter 10, Alerts and
Alarms), the mylife OmniPod System offers a number of personal
settings to help you manage your diabetes. These features are
optional. You can turn them on or off at any time, except for the
alerts. Those you can set at levels that you find convenient to
remind you to change your Pod.
Notifications you can use are:
BG (blood glucose) reminder: Reminds you to check your blood
glucose. Choose from On or Off. The default setting is Off. When
the reminder is on, the PDM asks you each time you enter a bolus
dose whether you want to set a BG reminder, and you can then
choose a time interval, in 30-minute increments.
Pod expiration: Reminds you when the Pod is nearing the 72hour expiration time. Choose a period from 1 to 24 hours before
expiration, in 1-hour increments. The default setting is 4 hours.
You will hear 2 sets of beeps every minute for 3 minutes. The
notification will repeat every 15 minutes until you press OK to
acknowledge it.
Low reservoir: Alerts you when insulin in the Pod reaches a certain level, so you can plan ahead to change the Pod. Choose a
level from 10 to 50 units, in 5-unit increments. The default setting
is 10 units.
OmniPod ENT450UK.book Page 67 Tuesday, April 19, 2016 11:36 PM
Using the Personal Diabetes Manager
The Low reservoir alert will escalate to an Empty reservoir hazard alarm when insulin is depleted. Be sure
to respond to the alert when it occurs.
Auto-off: Alerts you if the PDM does not receive a Pod status
within a predefined period of time. Obtain Pod status by pressing and holding the PDM’s Power button. Choose a time period
from 1 to 24 hours, in 1-hour increments, or choose Off. The
default setting is Off. Refer to page 54 to check Pod status and to
Confirm ID.
The Auto-off alert will escalate to a hazard alarm if
ignored and will result in the deactivation of your
active Pod. Be sure to respond to the alert when it
occurs.
Turning the PDM on by inserting a blood glucose
test strip does not send a Pod status to the PDM.
This alert can be especially reassuring if you are prone to hypoglycemia unawareness. Ask your healthcare provider about
using this alert and where to set it.
If you use the Auto-off feature, always turn on the
PDM with the Power button before using the system.
This allows the PDM
to obtain a Pod status. Refer to
FF
page 54 to check Pod status and to Confirm ID.
6
Bolus reminders: Notifies you if you have not delivered a meal
bolus, manually or using the suggested bolus calculator,
between the times you specify. Choose On or Off and choose up
to 6 time segments.
Program reminders: Pod beeps when a program is in process
(see Chapter 3, Understanding and Adjusting Basal Rates; and
Chapter 4, Understanding and Delivering Bolus Doses, for
details). These include:
• Temporary basal in process
• Extended bolus in process
Choose On or Off. The default setting is On.
Confidence reminders: The Pod or PDM beeps in response to
your instructions, so you become familiar with the operation of
the mylife OmniPod System and feel confident that you are getting the insulin you need. These notifications include:
• Bolus delivery started
• Bolus delivery completed
• Extended bolus started
• Extended bolus completed
• Temporary basal rate started
• Temporary basal completed
Choose On or Off. The default setting is On.

The Diagnostics screen allows you to instantly confirm how the
System is working or to completely update settings entered
during setup (see Chapter 2, Getting Started). Options include:
Check alarms: Confirms that all alarms work properly when
needed. When you select this function, the PDM beeps and
vibrates, then the Pod beeps. This function cannot be executed
unless insulin delivery is suspended.
If the PDM fails to beep, immediately call Customer
Care. If a Pod is active and fails to beep, change the
Pod immediately (see Chapter 5, Using the Pod).
Continuing to use the System in these situations
may put your health and safety at risk.
Reset PDM (soft reset): Restores all settings in the PDM to the
factory defaults.
Resetting the PDM deletes all basal programs, temp
basal presets, carb presets, bolus presets, and all suggested bolus settings. Before you use this feature
and delete these settings, be sure you have a written
record of the information you need. History records
will not be deleted.
As a safety feature, you cannot reset the PDM when a
Pod is active. You must first deactivate the Pod.

n Get the Most from Your PDM
Keep it handy
Wireless communication technology means you don’t have to
keep the PDM right next to the Pod for the Pod to work. Once
you set your basal program, the Pod continues to deliver your
basal program 24 hours a day, regardless of the location of the
PDM. However, you still need the PDM to deliver a bolus, change
the basal rate, and so on. You can store the PDM conveniently
inside an article of clothing (like a shirt pocket) or put it discreetly
into a drawer, briefcase, or purse.
Communicating with the Pod
When you use the PDM to communicate with the Pod, hold the
PDM within 24'' (61 cm) of the Pod.
Water and your PDM
Do NOT use IV Prep wipes, alcohol swabs, soap,
detergent, or solvents to clean the screen or any
other part of the PDM. The PDM is NOT waterproof.
Do NOT immerse it or place it in or near water.
75
OmniPod ENT450UK.book Page 76 Tuesday, April 19, 2016 11:36 PM
6 Using the Personal Diabetes Manager
Avoid extreme temperatures
Extreme operating temperatures can affect PDM batteries and
interfere with System operation. Avoid using the PDM in temperatures below 40°F (4.4°C) or above 104°F (40°C).
Do not store or leave the PDM where it may be
exposed to extreme temperatures, such as inside a
car. Extreme heat or cold can cause the device to
malfunction.
Never attempt to test your blood glucose while your
PDM is connected via USB cable to a computer.
Doing so could result in electrical shock.
Electrical interference
The PDM is designed to withstand normal radio interference and
electromagnetic fields. However, as with all wireless communication technology, certain operating conditions can interrupt
communication. For example, electric appliances such as microwave ovens and electric machinery located in manufacturing
environments may cause interference. In most cases, interruptions are easy to resolve (see Chapter 11, Communication
Failures).
76
Only connect a USB cable to your PDM when downloading data to a computer. Other PDM functions are
disabled while a USB cable is connected, and the
PDM cannot communicate with the Pod.
The PDM is compatible only with Windows®-based
operating systems. Do not connect a USB cable to
your PDM or attempt to download your data to a
non-Windows®-based computer operating system,
as the PDM may alarm and require a reset.
When you connect a USB cable to the PDM, only use
a cable that is less than or equal to 2.7 meters in
length.

CHAPTER 7
Checking Your Blood Glucose
n The Built-in FreeStyle Blood Glucose Meter
With the FreeStyle blood glucose meter, checking your blood glucose requires a very small sample size, 0.3 microliter of blood.
Refer to your FreeStyle test strip instructions for use for important test strip information.You may want to test for low blood
glucose:
• When you feel symptoms such as weakness, sweating,
nervousness, headache, or confusion
• When you have delayed a meal after taking insulin
• When your healthcare provider advises you to do so
Keep the system and the FreeStyle accessories away
from young children, as they contain small parts that
may be dangerous if swallowed.
Never attempt to test your blood glucose while your
PDM is connected via USB cable to a computer.
Doing so could result in electrical shock.
This Device is intended for self-testing by the user.
Please read all the instructions provided in this User
Guide and practice the testing procedures before
using the system and FreeStyle accessories. Follow the
guidance of a healthcare professional for proper
blood glucose monitoring.
Unless stated otherwise, references to FreeStyle
Blood Glucose Test Strips (FreeStyle test strip)
includes both FreeStyle and FreeStyle Lite Test Strips.
Only use FreeStyle test strips and FreeStyle control
solution with the System. Using other brands of test
strips and control solutions with the System can produce inaccurate results.
77
OmniPod ENT450UK.book Page 78 Tuesday, April 19, 2016 11:36 PM
7 Checking Your Blood Glucose
n The FreeStyle Blood Glucose Test Strips
Complete information on the FreeStyle test strips
(such as interferences and performance) can be
found in the test strip package insert. Please read all
instructions provided on the test strip package insert
before using the mylife OmniPod System and
FreeStyle accessories.
Important test strip information
• Store the blood glucose test strip package between 40° and
86° F (4.4° and 30° C).
• Use test strips only when the system is within its operating
temperature range, between 40° and 104° F (4.4° and 40° C).
• Keep test strips away from direct sunlight and heat.
• Store test strips in their original vial only; never transfer them
to another vial or any other container.
• Never store individual test strips outside the vial.
• After removing a blood glucose test strip from the vial, immediately close the vial cap tightly.
• With clean, dry hands, you can gently touch the test strip anywhere when removing it from the vial or inserting it into the
test strip port.
• Do not bend, cut, or alter blood glucose tests strips in any
way.
78
Do not use strips beyond the expiration date printed
on the package, as this may cause inaccurate results.
For detailed storage and usage information, refer to the
package insert in the box containing the test strip vial.
The cap or vial contains drying agents that may be
harmful if inhaled or swallowed and may cause skin
or eye irritation.
n The FreeStyle Control Solution
The FreeStyle control solution (Figure 7-1) is a
red liquid that contains a fixed amount of glucose and has two important uses:
• To ensure that your meter and test strips
are working together properly
• To practice testing without having to use
your own blood
Two levels of control solution are available:
Low, and High. For information on how to
obtain control solution, call Customer Care.
When to perform a control solution test
You should perform a control solution test:
Figure 7-1
OmniPod ENT450UK.book Page 79 Tuesday, April 19, 2016 11:36 PM
Checking Your Blood Glucose
• When you suspect that your meter or test strips are not working properly
• When you think your test results are not accurate or if your
test results are not consistent with how you feel
• When you drop or damage your PDM or expose it to liquids
• When your healthcare provider advises you to do so
Check that the meter and test strips are working
A control solution test follows the same procedure as a blood
glucose reading, except that you use a sample of control solution
instead of a drop of blood. (See “Performing a Blood Glucose
Reading” later in this chapter.)
When you perform a control solution test, if the reading is within
the control solution acceptable range, the meter is working
properly.
Control solution expiration date
FreeStyle control solution is good for 3 months after opening the
bottle, or until the expiration date printed on the label, whichever comes first. Count forward 3 months from the date you
open a new bottle of control solution. This is your discard date.
Write this date on the side of the control solution bottle. For
example, if you open the control solution on January 15, count
forward 3 months to April 15. This is the discard date to record
on the bottle, as well as the date to discard it and begin using a
new bottle.
7
Ensure accurate control solution results
• Replace the cap on the control solution bottle immediately
after using it.
Use only FreeStyle control solution with the
System. Other brands of control solution may produce inaccurate results with this System.
Do not use control solution past the expiration
date or you may get inaccurate results.
•
•
Do not add water or any liquid to control solution.
Control solution tests are specified to be accurate only when
performed between 59° and 104° F (15° and 40° C).
Results from FreeStyle control solution tests do
not reflect your blood glucose level.
• The control solution test results should fall within the range
printed on the test strip vial label.
The control solution range is a target range for control
solution only. It is not a target range for your blood
glucose.
If control solution results are out of this range, REPEAT THE TEST.
Out-of-range control solution results
79
OmniPod ENT450UK.book Page 80 Tuesday, April 19, 2016 11:36 PM
7 Checking Your Blood Glucose
Out-of-range test results may be caused by:
• Expired or bad control solution
• Expired or bad test strip
• Error in performing test
• Code on test strip vial does not match code set in the PDM
• Malfunction of the System
• Control solution test done outside 59° to 104° F (15° to 40° C)
If your control solution test results continue to fall outside the
range printed on the test strip vial:
1. The System may not be working properly.
2. Do not use the System to test your blood glucose.
3. Call Customer Care.
n Performing a Control Solution Test

test strip vial (Figure 7-4).
It is important to always enter a code whether
using FreeStyle or FreeStyle Lite with the mylife
OmniPod, even if some FreeStyle Lite products
indicate that no coding is required. No coding
only apply when these strips are used with certain
Abbott meters, and does not apply to mylife
OmniPod. (Figure 7-4)

The code number on the screen should match
the code number on the side of your test strip
vial (Figure 7-4). They must always match or your
results will be inaccurate. (See “Set the blood glucose test strip code” later in this chapter.)
4. Wait for the PDM to display “Apply a blood sample to the
strip” on the screen (Figure 7-5 on the following page).
82
5. Gently touch only ONE EDGE of the test strip to the control
solution. Specifically, apply the control solution to the test
strip edge next to one of the dark-colored half-circles (Figure
7-6). If BG sound is set to On, the PDM beeps when the test
strip is full.
If you do not apply the sample within 10 seconds, the strip
port light turns off. To turn it on again, press Light.
The “Checking” screen appears while the sample is processing (Figure 7-7). The strip port light turns off when the sample
is accepted.

Test results below 3.9 mmol/L mean low blood glucose
(hypoglycemia).
Test results greater than 13.9 mmol/L mean high blood glucose (hyperglycemia).
If you get results below 3.9 mmol/L or above 13.9 mmol/L,
but do not have symptoms of hypoglycemia or hyperglycemia (see Chapter 9, Living with Diabetes), repeat the test. If
you have symptoms or continue to get results that fall below

Understanding Your Records
n Record Keeping
Record keeping is an important part of successful diabetes management. The Personal Diabetes Manager (PDM) helps simplify
this task. It automatically stores records of insulin delivery history,
blood glucose readings, alarms and carbohydrates. The PDM can
store over 5,000 records or approximately 90 days’ worth of information. Once the memory is full, new information begins to
replace the oldest information.
If the PDM batteries run out, data in the memory is at
risk. Do NOT remove the old batteries until you have
new ones on hand. The PDM protects data in the
memory for up to 2 hours after the batteries run out
or are removed.
Special symbols in record screens
In the record screens, you may encounter several special symbols:
Records with a question-mark symbol next to them have
additional information available. To see this information, use
the Up/Down Controller buttons to highlight the record,
then press the User Info/Support button to view details
about that record.
The record for this item has been “lost.”
If the PDM can no longer communicate with an
active Pod, then you must activate a new Pod. The
PDM may not be able to communicate with the
active Pod because of signal interference or because
you have discarded the Pod. If you change the Pod
without getting a Status update, any “unconfirmed”
records will be “lost.” If this occurs, the PDM will not
display insulin totals for any day containing “lost”
records.

4 The record for this item is “unconfirmed.”
When you power on the PDM, it will request a status
update from the active Pod and then update the
insulin history. If the PDM does not receive a status
update from the Pod, the PDM will update history
with “unconfirmed” records. The next time the PDM
receives a status update, it will update these records.

CHAPTER 9
Living with Diabetes
n Your Role: Safely Using the mylife OmniPod
System
Before deciding on the mylife OmniPod® Insulin Management
System, you and your healthcare provider discussed the advantages and benefits of the mylife OmniPod System, as well as the
responsibilities that come with insulin pump therapy. Remember: safe use begins and ends with you. If you have questions or
doubts about being able to safely use the mylife OmniPod System at any time, consult your healthcare provider immediately.
Most problems are easily avoided by:
• Learning all you can about successful diabetes management.
• Being actively involved in your treatment.
• Checking your blood glucose levels frequently.
• Washing your hands and disinfecting infusion sites to reduce
the possibility of infection.
• Being aware of the signs of hypoglycemia (low blood glucose), hyperglycemia (high blood glucose), and diabetic keto-
acidosis (DKA). (See “Avoid Lows, Highs and DKA” later in this
chapter.)
• Keeping a diabetes emergency kit with you at all times. (See
“Prepare for Emergencies” later in this chapter.)
• Knowing how to contact your healthcare provider in case of
an emergency.
If you are unable to use the mylife OmniPod Insulin
Management System according to instructions, you
may be putting your health and safety at risk. Talk
with your healthcare provider if you have questions or
concerns about using the mylife OmniPod System.
n Daily Diabetes Management Activities
To ensure proper mylife OmniPod System operation and your
continued good health:
• Check your blood glucose frequently
• Inspect the infusion site daily
107
OmniPod ENT450UK.book Page 108 Tuesday, April 19, 2016 11:36 PM
9 Living with Diabetes
Check your blood glucose frequently
When you routinely check your blood glucose level, you can identify and treat high or low blood glucose before it becomes a
problem (see “Avoid lows, highs, and DKA” later in this chapter).
Check your blood glucose (BG):
• At least 4 to 6 times a day: when you wake up, before every
meal, and before going to bed
• Whenever you feel nauseated or sick
• Before driving a car
• Whenever your blood glucose has been running unusually
high or low
• If you suspect that your blood glucose is high or low
• Before, during, and after exercise
• As directed by your healthcare provider
Inspect the infusion site daily
At least once a day, use the Pod’s viewing window to inspect the
infusion site. Check the site for signs of infection, such as pain,
swelling, redness, discharge or heat.
108
If an infusion site shows signs of infection:
1. Immediately remove the Pod and apply a new
one at a different site (see Chapter 5, Using the Pod).
2. Contact your healthcare provider.
Treat the infection according to instructions from
your healthcare provider. (Refer to Chapter 5, Using
the Pod, for how to prepare and care for a site.)
Consider making infusion site checks a part of your
regular daily routine (like showering or brushing your
teeth). That way, it’s easy to remember. Verify there is
no wetness or scent of insulin, where as may indicate
the cannula has dislodged.
If you observe blood in the cannula, check your blood
glucose more frequently to ensure insulin delivery
has not been affected. If you experience unexpected
elevated blood glucose levels, change your Pod.
OmniPod ENT450UK.book Page 109 Tuesday, April 19, 2016 11:36 PM

Living with Diabetes
n Prepare for Emergencies
Keep an emergency kit with you at all times to
quickly respond to any diabetes emergency. The kit
should include:
• Several new, sealed Pods
• Extra new PDM batteries (at least two AAA alkaline) and do not use rechargeable batteries
• A vial of rapid-acting U-100 insulin (See the warning on page x of the Introduction for insulins
approved for use in the mylife OmniPod System.)
• Syringes for injecting insulin
• Instructions from your healthcare provider about
how much insulin to inject if delivery from the
Pod is interrupted
• Blood glucose test strips
• Ketone test strips
• Lancing device and lancets
• Glucose tablets or another fast-acting source of
carbohydrate
• Alcohol prep swabs
• A copy of the letter from your healthcare provider for airline security (see “Minimize airport
security delays” later in this chapter)
•
•
Phone numbers for your healthcare provider
and/or doctor in case of an emergency
Glucagon kit and written instructions for giving
an injection if you are unconscious (see “Avoid
Lows, Highs and DKA” later in this chapter)
Ask your healthcare provider to help you develop
plans for handling emergency situations, including
what to do if you cannot reach your healthcare
provider.
n Water and Your Pod
The Pod is waterproof to a depth of 7.6 meters for up to 60 minutes (IPX8). After the Pod gets wet, rinse it off with clean water
and dry it with a towel.
Do NOT expose your Pod to water at depths greater
than 7.6 meters or for longer than 60 minutes. Check
the infusion site often to make sure the Pod and soft
cannula are securely applied and in place. If the cannula is not properly inserted, hyperglycemia may
result.
109
OmniPod ENT450UK.book Page 110 Tuesday, April 19, 2016 11:36 PM
9 Living with Diabetes
The Personal Diabetes Manager (PDM) is not waterproof. Do NOT place it in or near water. Do not use
oily bath lotions as this could reduce the stickiness of
the adhesive.
n Traveling and Vacationing
Plan for changing time zones
If you’re planning a vacation or business trip to a different time
zone, you may need to adjust your basal rate programs. For
changes of just a few hours, basal rate adjustments are minor
and easy to calculate. For long-distance travel, however, figuring
out the correct program can be more challenging. Your healthcare provider can help with these adjustments.
110
Take enough supplies
Keeping your emergency kit with you during trips or vacations
is especially important (see “Prepare for Emergencies” on
page 109). It may be difficult or impossible to get insulin or
supplies in an unfamiliar place. If traveling by air, be sure to pack
your supplies in your carry-on luggage. When packing for travel,
take more supplies than you think you’ll need. Be sure to include:
• Diabetes emergency kit packed in your carry-on luggage
• Enough Pods for your trip, plus a backup supply
• Extra new PDM batteries and do not use rechargeable batteries
• Additional blood glucose meter
• Insulin syringes or pens in case you need injections
• Several vials of insulin or insulin cartridges if you use a pen
OmniPod ENT450UK.book Page 111 Tuesday, April 19, 2016 11:36 PM
Living with Diabetes
•
Glucagon kit (Make sure any person you are traveling with
knows how to give the injection.)
• Alcohol prep swabs
• Written prescriptions for all medications and supplies
(Generic medications may be easier to find than brand
names.)
When you travel outside the country or for long periods of time, be sure to take extra Pod supplies. Call
Customer Care to order additional supplies for your
trip.
Minimize airport security delays
With changing airport security checks and screening procedures,
you may have questions on how this impacts traveling with
your diabetes supplies. Below you will find more information on
prepping for travel and what you can expect when going
through security checkpoints.
Travel Preparation
• Review the countries provincial airports website for travel
updates
• Pack extra supplies and hypoglycemia treatments
• Carry contact information for your physician
• Arrive at the airport 2-3 hours prior to your flight
9
To ensure airport security checks run smoothly, be sure you have
the following items easily accessible:
• All diabetes supplies in your carry-on luggage
• A signed letter from your healthcare provider explaining
you need to carry insulin supplies and mylife OmniPod
equipment
• Prescriptions for all medications and supplies with original prescription labels
Screening Procedures
The countries provincial airport may offer the option of requesting a visual inspection of your medical supplies rather than
putting them through the X-ray. This must be requested before
the screening process begins. Your medical supplies should be
ready in a separate bag when you approach the Security Officer.
In order to prevent contamination or damage to your supplies,
you should be asked at the security checkpoint to display, handle, and repack your own supplies during the visual inspection
process. Any medication and/or associated supplies that cannot
be cleared visually must be submitted for X-ray screening.
If you're concerned or uncomfortable about going through the
walk-through metal detector, you should notify the Security Officer that you're wearing a pump and would like a full-body patdown and a visual inspection of your pump instead. You should
also advise the Security Officer that the insulin pump cannot be
111
OmniPod ENT450UK.book Page 112 Tuesday, April 19, 2016 11:36 PM
9 Living with Diabetes
removed because it is inserted with a catheter (needle) under
the skin.
Visit the countries provincial airports website if you have
any further questions or concerns.
If the security detector goes off, tell the security screener that you
have diabetes and wear an insulin Pod (pump).
Pods and PDMs can safely pass through airport
X-ray machines (see the “OmniPod System Notice
Concerning Interference” in the Appendix).
Keep supplies accessible
On airplanes and trains, keep these items with you, rather than
checking them:
• Personal Diabetes Manager (PDM)
• An emergency kit
• Vials of insulin (cargo area temperatures may affect insulin)
• A copy of your healthcare provider’s letter (see “Minimize airport security delays”)
• Prescriptions for insulin and supplies
• Snacks, in case food is not available
• Bottled water (especially on planes) to prevent dehydration
The name and phone number of a physician at your final
destination, in case of emergency.
112
n Avoid lows, highs, and DKA
You can avoid most risks related to using the mylife OmniPod
System by practicing proper techniques and by acting promptly
at the first sign of trouble. You can avoid potential problems by
knowing the signs of hypoglycemia (low blood glucose), hyperglycemia (high blood glucose), and diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA).
The easiest and most reliable way to avoid these conditions is to
check your blood glucose often.
General precautions
• Keep careful records and discuss changes and adjustments
with your healthcare provider.
• Tell your healthcare provider if you have extreme highs or
lows, or if highs or lows are occurring more often than usual.
• If you have technical problems with your mylife OmniPod
System and cannot resolve them, do not hesitate to call Customer Care.
Hypoglycemia (Low Blood Glucose)
Hypoglycemia can occur even when a Pod is working properly.
Never ignore the signs of low blood glucose (no matter how
mild). If left untreated, severe hypoglycemia can cause seizures
or lead to unconsciousness. If you suspect that your blood glucose level is low, check your BG level to confirm.
OmniPod ENT450UK.book Page 113 Tuesday, April 19, 2016 11:36 PM
Living with Diabetes
Symptoms of hypoglycemia
Never ignore these symptoms:
• Shakiness
• Fatigue
• Unexplained sweating
• Cold, clammy skin
• Weakness
• Blurred vision or a headache
• Sudden hunger
• Rapid heart rate
• Confusion
• Tingling in the lips or tongue
• Anxiety
9
Hypoglycemia unawareness is a condition in which
you do not realize when your blood glucose level is
low. If you are prone to hypoglycemia unawareness,
you may want to use the mylife OmniPod System’s
blood glucose reminder and check your blood glucose more frequently. See “Alerts and Reminders” in
Chapter 6, Using the Personal Diabetes Manager, for
how to set the reminder.
To avoid hypoglycemia (low blood glucose)
Make sure your blood glucose is at least 5.6 mmol/L
before driving or working with dangerous machinery
or equipment. Hypoglycemia may cause you to lose
control of a car or dangerous equipment. Also, when
you focus intently on a task, you may miss the symptoms of hypoglycemia.
• Work with your healthcare provider to establish individualized blood glucose targets and guidelines.
• Keep a fast-acting carbohydrate with you at all times to
respond quickly to low blood glucose. Examples of fastacting carbs are glucose tablets, hard candies or juice.
• Teach your friends, family members and colleagues to
recognize the signs of hypoglycemia, so they can help if you
develop hypoglycemia unawareness or a severe adverse
reaction.
113
OmniPod ENT450UK.book Page 114 Tuesday, April 19, 2016 11:36 PM
9 Living with Diabetes
•
Keep a glucagon injection kit with your emergency supplies.
Teach friends and family members how to give a glucagon
injection in case you have severe hypoglycemia and become
unconscious.
Periodically check the expiration date of your glucagon
kit to make sure it has not expired.
Always carry medical identification (emergency
wallet card) and wear an emergency medical necklace or bracelet such as the Medic Alert tag. (See the
end of the Appendix for address, telephone and
website information for obtaining these items.)
Again, frequent blood glucose checks are the key to avoiding
potential problems. Detecting low blood glucose early lets you
treat it before it becomes a problem.
Check with your healthcare provider for guidance in any and all
areas listed above.
To treat hypoglycemia (low blood glucose)
Any time your blood glucose is low, treat immediately. Check it
every 15 minutes while you are treating, to make sure you don’t
overtreat the condition and cause blood glucose levels to rise
too high.
114
Even if you cannot check your blood glucose, do NOT
wait to treat symptoms of hypoglycemia, especially
if you are alone. Waiting to treat symptoms could
lead to severe hypoglycemia, which can quickly lead
to shock, coma or death.
1. If blood glucose is below 3.9 mmol/L, eat or drink 15 grams of
fast-acting carbohydrate, such as glucose tablets, juice, or
hard candy (see “How much is 15 grams of carbohydrate?”
below).
Do NOT use chocolate or candy bars to treat low
blood glucose. Their fat content slows down glucose
absorption.
2. Check blood glucose again after 15 minutes.
3. If blood glucose remains low, eat another 15 grams of
carbohydrate. Contact your healthcare provider as needed
for guidance.
4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 until blood glucose is within the BG goal.
5. Investigate possible cause for hypoglycemia to avoid similar
problems in the future (see “Possible causes of hypoglycemia
(low blood glucose)” on the next page).
OmniPod ENT450UK.book Page 115 Tuesday, April 19, 2016 11:36 PM

9
How much is 15 grams of carbohydrate?
Examples of fast-acting foods:
Three 5-gram glucose tablets, or four 4-gram tablets
118 milliliters of apple or orange juice
6 pieces of hard candy
1/2 can of regular (non-diet) soda
30 milliliters of table sugar, honey or corn syrup
Teach people you trust (like family members and
close friends) how to give a glucagon injection. You
will need to rely on them to give it to you if you have
severe hypoglycemia and become unconscious.
Include a copy of the glucagon instructions in your
emergency kit and periodically review the procedure with family and friends.

Hyperglycemia (high blood glucose)
Insulin Pods use rapid-acting insulin, so you have no long-acting
insulin in your body. If an occlusion (interruption of insulin delivery from the Pod) occurs, your blood glucose can rise rapidly.
An occlusion may result from a blockage, Pod malfunction or from using old or inactive insulin. If
insulin delivery is interrupted by an occlusion, check
your blood glucose level and follow the treatment
guidelines established by your healthcare provider.
Hyperglycemia could result if appropriate actions
are not taken.
Symptoms of hyperglycemia (high blood glucose)
• Fatigue
• Frequent urination, especially during the night
• Unusual thirst or hunger
• Unexplained weight loss
• Blurred vision
• Slow healing of cuts or sores
Hyperglycemia symptoms can be confusing.
Always check your blood glucose before you
treat for hyperglycemia.
117

9 Living with Diabetes
To avoid hyperglycemia (high blood glucose)
Check your blood glucose at least 4–6 times a day (when you
wake up, before each meal, and before going to bed). In addition, always check it:
• If you feel nauseated or sick
• Before driving a car
• Whenever your blood glucose has been running unusually
high or low
• If you suspect that your blood glucose is high or low
• Before, during and after exercise
• As directed by your healthcare provider
To treat hyperglycemia (high blood glucose)
Always check your blood glucose levels frequently while treating
hyperglycemia. You don’t want to over-treat the condition and
cause your BG level to drop too far.
1. Check your blood glucose level. The result will help you to
find out how much insulin is needed to return your blood
glucose to the BG goal.
2. If your blood glucose is 13.9 mmol/L or above, check for
ketones. If ketones are present, follow your healthcare
provider’s guidelines.
3. If ketones are not present, take a correction bolus as prescribed by your healthcare provider.
118
4. Check blood glucose again after 2 hours.
5. If blood glucose levels have not decreased, take a second
bolus by injection, using a sterile syringe. Ask your healthcare
provider whether to inject the same amount of insulin as in
step 3.
6. If you feel nauseated at any point, check for ketones and call
your healthcare provider immediately (see “Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA)” later in this chapter).
7. If blood glucose remains high after another 2 hours (a total of
4 hours), replace the Pod. Use a new vial of insulin to fill the
new Pod. Then:
• Contact your healthcare provider for guidance.
• Drink eight ounces of water every 30 minutes until blood
glucose is within BG goal.
If you need emergency attention, ask a friend or
family member to take you to the emergency
room or call an ambulance. Do NOT drive yourself.

Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA)
Insulin Pods use rapid-acting insulin, so you have no long-acting
insulin in your body. If insulin delivery from the Pod is interrupted
(an occlusion), your blood glucose can rise rapidly and lead to
diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA). DKA is a serious—but totally preventable—emergency that can occur if you ignore high blood
glucose levels.
If left untreated, DKA can cause breathing difficulties,
shock, coma, and eventually death.
Symptoms of DKA
• Nausea and vomiting
• Abdominal pain
• Dehydration
• Fruity-smelling breath
• Dry skin or tongue
• Drowsiness
• Rapid pulse
• Labored breathing
The symptoms of DKA are much like those of the flu. Before
assuming you have the flu, check your blood glucose and check
for ketones to rule out DKA.
9
To avoid DKA
The easiest and most reliable way to avoid DKA is by checking
your blood glucose at least 4–6 times a day. Routine checks
allow you to identify and treat high blood glucose before DKA
develops.
To treat DKA
• Once you have begun treatment for high blood glucose,
check for ketones. Check for ketones any time your blood
glucose is 13.9 mmol/L or above.
• If ketones are negative or trace, continue treating for high
blood glucose.
• If ketones are present, and you are feeling nauseated or ill,
immediately call your healthcare provider for guidance.
• If ketones are positive, but you are not feeling nauseated or ill,
replace the Pod, using a new vial of insulin.
• Check blood glucose again after 2 hours. If blood glucose
level has not declined, immediately call your healthcare
provider for guidance.
If you need emergency attention, ask a friend or
family member to take you to the emergency
room or call an ambulance. Do NOT drive yourself.

n Handling Special Situations
•
Sick days
Any physical stress can cause your blood glucose to rise, and illness is a physical stress. Your healthcare provider can help you
make a plan for sick days. The following are only general
guidelines.
When you are ill, check your blood glucose more often (at least
once every 2 hours) to avoid DKA. The symptoms of DKA are
much like those of the flu. Before assuming you have the flu,
check your blood glucose to rule out DKA (see “Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA)” earlier in this chapter).
•
To handle sick days
• Treat the underlying illness to promote faster recovery.
• Eat as normally as you can.
• Adjust bolus doses, if necessary, to match changes in meals
and snacks.
• Always continue your basal insulin, even if you are unable to
eat. Contact your healthcare provider for suggested basal
rate adjustments during sick days.
• Check your blood glucose every 2 hours and keep careful
records of results.
• Check for ketones when blood glucose is 13.9 mmol/L or
higher.
122
Follow your healthcare provider’s guidelines for taking additional insulin on sick days.
Drink plenty of noncaffeinated fluids to prevent dehydration.
If you are well enough to eat, drink sugar-free beverages. However, if you are too sick to eat solid foods,
alternate between sugar-free beverages and those
containing sugar.
•
Call your healthcare provider immediately if you have:
• Persistent nausea
• Vomiting for more than 2 hours
• High blood glucose or ketones that stay high even
though you take extra insulin
• Low blood glucose with nausea and vomiting
Exercising, playing sports, or working hard
Check your blood glucose levels before, during and after exercising, playing sports, or doing unusually hard physical labor.
The Pod’s adhesive keeps it securely in place for up to 3 days.
However, if necessary, several products are available to enhance
adhesion. Ask your healthcare provider about these products.
Avoid getting body lotion, creams, or oils near the infusion site;
these products may loosen the adhesive.
For some contact sports, you may want to remove the Pod.
OmniPod ENT450UK.book Page 123 Tuesday, April 19, 2016 11:36 PM
Living with Diabetes
Be sure to check your blood glucose levels before removing the
Pod and after applying a new one. Pods are designed for onetime use. Do not attempt to reapply a used Pod.
If possible, avoid wasting Pods by planning removal
times that coincide with a scheduled Pod replacement.
If you will need to remove the Pod for more than 1 hour, ask your
healthcare provider to recommend appropriate guidelines.
X-rays, MRIs, and CT scans
9
Surgery or hospitalization
For scheduled surgeries or hospitalization, you should tell the
doctor/surgeon or hospital staff about your insulin Pod. It may
be necessary to remove it for certain procedures or treatments.
Remember to replace the basal insulin that was missed while the
Pod was removed. Your healthcare provider can help you prepare for these situations.
Always carry medical identification and wear an
emergency medical necklace or bracelet such as
the Medic Alert tag.
The Pod and PDM may be affected by strong radiation or magnetic fields. Before having an X-ray, MRI, or
CT scan (or any similar test or procedure), remove
your Pod and put it and the PDM outside the treatment area. Check with your healthcare provider on
Pod removal guidelines.
The Pod and PDM can tolerate common electromagnetic and electrostatic fields, including airport security

Alerts and Alarms
n Safety Checks
The OmniPod System has a very important safety feature: It can
check its own functions and let you know when something
needs attention. When you turn on the Personal Diabetes Manager (PDM), the System automatically performs a series of safety
checks. (Refer to Page 54 for detailed instructions. The ID screen
must be confirmed before you can check Pod status.) To make
you aware of a serious or potentially serious condition, the System sounds an alarm and displays an on-screen message. The
message has instructions for taking care of the alarm condition.
Alarm conditions are easy to handle. They are not a problem if
you attend to them promptly.
n Blood Glucose Meter Alerts
These alerts let you know about an error in the blood glucose
meter, test strip, sample, or results. The PDM beeps and displays
an error message number, as in Figure 10-1.
124
If you are having symptoms that are not consistent
with your blood glucose test and you have followed
all instructions described in this User Guide, call your
healthcare professional.

Alerts and Alarms
n Alarms
The OmniPod System provides alarms to make you aware of
serious or potentially serious conditions. When a condition
occurs that requires your attention an Advisory Alarm or a
Hazard Alarm will sound. Advisory alarms beep intermittently
and inform you about a condition that requires your attention.
Hazard alarms are continuous tones and occur when either the
Pod or PDM is in a serious condition. During an alarm the PDM
will display an on-screen message with instructions for taking
care of the alarm condition. Be sure to respond to all alarms
when they occur.
Details on how to handle an Advisory or a Hazard Alarm are
below:
Many alarms (such as Auto-off) will escalate and
result in deactivation of the active Pod if ignored. Be
sure to respond to all alarms when they occur.
Advisory Alarms
Advisory alarms tell you about a condition that requires your
attention. Each advisory alarm beeps intermittently. When you
hear an advisory alarm, first turn on the PDM to display the
Status screen. The PDM communicates with the Pod, if
necessary, and the screen displays a message describing the
alarm and how to resolve it. All advisory alarms are time sensitive
and require a response. Some advisory alarms escalate to hazard
10
alarms if you do not respond within a certain time period (as
noted in the following table).
Some advisory alarms are controlled by levels you set in the
Settings screen. One example is the level at which the Low
reservoir volume alarm sounds.
Hazard Alarms
Hazard alarms occur either when the Pod is in a very serious condition or something is wrong with the PDM. Hazard alarms are
continuous tones and each has an on-screen message. Follow
the instructions in the message to fix the alarm situation. For
details, see the following table.
When a hazard alarm occurs in the Pod, all insulin
delivery stops. Failing to address the situation could
result in hyperglycemia. If you had a temp basal or
extended bolus running when the hazard occurred,
the PDM will remind you of this.
Due to the serious nature of hazard alarms, you must
act promptly to resolve them.
1. Acknowledge the alarm condition by pressing
OK, which silences the alarm.
2. Deactivate and remove the active Pod (see Chapter 5, Using the Pod).
3. Activate and apply a new Pod (see Chapter 5,
Using the Pod).

CHAPTER 11
Communication Failures
n The Communication Process
n Failure During Pod Activation or Operation
When you turn on or use the Personal Diabetes Manager (PDM),
it establishes communication with the active Pod. Usually, communication occurs quickly. Occasionally, communication takes
longer and the PDM displays the communication icon during
that time in the upper left-hand corner of the current screen.
However, if communication does not work, the PDM will walk
you through the necessary steps to re-establish communication.
Communication can fail if the PDM is:
• Too far from the Pod—The PDM and Pod should be side by
side while priming during activation.
• Interrupted by outside interference—See the “mylife OmniPod System Notice Concerning Interference” in the Appendix.
As a safety feature, the communication distance between the Pod and PDM is reduced during activation.
Once a Pod is primed and communicates with the
PDM, the full communication range is restored and
the Pod can receive commands only from that PDM.
When you send an instruction from the PDM—such as Start to
begin bolus delivery or Enable to begin using a different basal
program—the Pod usually responds quickly. However, if the
PDM cannot send your instruction within a few seconds, it displays the “Communication error” screen (Figure 11-1 on the next
page).
1. Move the PDM closer to the Pod. The PDM will try to communicate with the Pod again. If communication still fails, you will
see the message in Figure 11-2 on the next page.

3. If at any point in this process the PDM can communicate
again with the Pod, you will see either:
a. Figure 11-5, indicating that your original instruction or
command was successfully sent to the Pod. When you
press OK, or within 5 seconds, the System displays the next
screen in the command sequence you were entering.
b. Figure 11-6, indicating that your last command was not
sent to the Pod. Press OK.
If you were activating a Pod, the System returns to the previous screen where you can continue activation. If you
were issuing any other command, the System returns to
the Status screen, where you can reissue the command.

n Pod Care and Maintenance
n Personal Diabetes Manager Care and Maintenance
Storage
Store unopened Pods in a cool, dry place. Extreme heat or cold
can damage Pods and cause them to malfunction. If Pods are
exposed to extreme temperatures, inspect them carefully before
use. Pods are sterile unless packaging is opened or damaged. Do
not apply or use a Pod if its sterile packaging is opened or
damaged.
Storage
When you are not actively using the Personal Diabetes Manager
(PDM) to enter or change programs, you can store it in a convenient, nearby location. The storage location should be cool and
dry.
Cleaning
Pods are waterproof. If you need to clean a Pod, you can gently
wash it with a clean, damp cloth. Or you can use mild soap and
water. However, do not use strong detergents or solvents. They
can damage the Pod’s casing or irritate the infusion site.
Hold the Pod securely and take care while cleaning
it, so the cannula doesn’t kink and the Pod doesn’t
become detached from your skin.
140
Do not store or leave the PDM where it may be
exposed to extreme temperatures, such as inside a
car. Extreme heat or cold can cause the device to
malfunction.
If the PDM is not safe from children or others who may press the
buttons by accident, consider using the optional PDM lock
safety feature to prevent accidental program changes (see
Chapter 6, Using the Personal Diabetes Manager).

Cleaning and disinfecting
Cleaning is to keep free from dirt, stains, or impurities; unsoiled.
Disinfecting is the process of destroying pathogenic organisms
or rendering them inert.
Keep your PDM test strip port and USB port free of debris and
liquids. Dirt, dust, blood, and control solution can impair the
functionality of your PDM or damage it.
If the battery compartment becomes soiled, gently shake out
the debris or use a dry, lint-free cloth to remove it.
Do NOT use IV Prep wipes, alcohol wipes, soap,
detergent, or solvents. Never put any liquid into the
battery compartment. The PDM is NOT waterproof.
Do NOT immerse it or place it in or near water.
It is recommended that the user pre-clean the device
prior to each disinfection cycle.
You should clean and disinfect your PDM at least once a week.
You should also clean your PDM whenever it is visibly soiled. For
both cleaning and disinfecting the same process should be followed. Therefore, if you are intending to complete weekly
cleaning and disinfection you should complete the process outlined to the right.
Use the guidelines below to clean or disinfect your PDM:
The PDM can be cleaned and disinfected up to twice a week over
the course of the life of the device (4 years).
1. Be sure to turn off your PDM before cleaning or disinfecting.
2. To clean and disinfect the outside surfaces of the PDM housing, use Dispatch® Hospital Cleaner Disinfectant Towels with
Bleach (EPA Reg. No. 56392-8) (available online through
major retailers).
3. Following the instructions on the label of the Dispatch® Hospital Cleaner Disinfectant Towels with Bleach (EPA Reg. No.
56392-8), wipe the outside surfaces of your PDM. Treated surfaces must remain wet for a full (1) minute.
While cleaning, do NOT allow debris or liquid to get into
the test strip port, USB port, battery compartment, or
buttons (see Figure A-1).
4. Let your PDM air dry completely before checking your BG
next. We recommend you perform a control solution test to
ensure the System functions properly. See”Performing a Control Solution Test” in Chapter 7, Checking Your Blood Glucose.
5. If you see any signs of deterioration of the PDM (i.e.
cracking separation, discolorations), please contact customer care.

Replacing batteries
The PDM uses two (2) AAA alkaline batteries. You can purchase
them at any grocery, hardware or convenience store.
AAA alkaline batteries are the preferred battery to
power the PDM. Do not use any other type of batteries. Never use old or used batteries; the PDM may
not work properly. Using any kind of batteries other
than alkaline may reduce battery life and cause damage to the PDM. Do no use rechargeable batteries.
142
On average, a pair of batteries powers the PDM for 3 weeks. The
battery life indicator on the PDM shows the battery power level.
See “Personal Diabetes Manager Icons” later in this Appendix for
the various battery power levels and their respective icons.
The PDM automatically alerts you when its battery power gets
low (see Figure A-2). When you see the “Low PDM battery” alert,
press OK to turn off the alert. Replace the batteries as soon as
you can.
Figure A-2
Figure A-3
OmniPod ENT450UK.book Page 143 Tuesday, April 19, 2016 11:36 PM
Appendix
When your PDM alerts you that battery power is getting
low, the PDM will maximize remaining battery life by:
• Turning off your vibration alert (if set)
• Disabling bright mode
• Disabling the test strip port light
Once the batteries are replaced, these functions resume.
If the batteries run out, data in the memory is at risk.
DO NOT remove the old batteries until you have
new ones at hand. The PDM protects data in the
memory for up to 2 hours after the batteries run out
or are removed.
To replace batteries
1. Open the battery compartment on the back of the PDM by
pushing the compartment latch inward and then upward
(Figure A-3). No special tools are necessary.
2. Insert 2 new AAA alkaline batteries into the compartment.
The diagram inside the compartment shows you
which direction to insert the batteries.
3. Replace the battery door.
4. Turn the PDM face up. The PDM powers on automatically.
The PDM is now ready to use. Dispose of the old batteries in
accordance with local waste disposal regulations.
If the PDM becomes submerged in water
The PDM is not waterproof. Do not place it in water or leave it
near water where it can accidentally fall in. If it becomes submerged in water:
1. Dry the outside of the PDM with a clean, lint-free cloth.
2. Open the battery compartment; remove the batteries and
discard them.
3. Use a clean, lint-free cloth to gently absorb any water in the
battery compartment.
4. Leave the battery compartment door open until the PDM is
thoroughly dry.
Never use a blow dryer or hot air to dry the Pod or
PDM. Extreme heat can damage the electronics.
5. Do not put in fresh batteries or attempt to use the PDM until
it has thoroughly air-dried.

If you drop the PDM
The PDM is built to withstand reasonable amounts of abuse, but
shock or a severe impact can damage it. If you drop the PDM or if
it is otherwise subjected to severe impact:
1. Inspect the outside of the PDM for visible signs of damage.
2. Press and hold the Power button to see whether the PDM
turns on and whether the LCD screen is damaged.
3. Inspect the inside of the battery compartment for visible
signs of damage.
4. Do NOT use the PDM if it appears damaged or is not working

A suggested bolus is equal to the sum of a correction bolus and
meal bolus, then adjusted for insulin on board, if applicable.
Examples of each of these elements are shown below.
Example of correction bolus
Target BG: 5.6 mmol/L
Current BG: 11.2 mmol/L
Correction factor (CF): 50
11.2 mmol/L (current) – 5.6 mmol/L (target) = 5.6 mmol/L
5.6 mmol/L ÷ 50 (CF) = 2 units correction bolus
If the reverse correction feature is turned On and if your current
BG is below your target BG, the suggested bolus calculator subtracts a correction amount from the meal bolus.
Example of reverse correction bolus:
Target BG: 5.6 mmol/L
Current BG: 4.2 mmol/L
Correction factor (CF): 50
4.2 mmol/L (current) – 5.6 mmol/L (target) = –1.4 mmol/L
–1.4 mmol/L ÷ 50 CF = –0.5 units reverse correction bolus
(reduces meal bolus)
Meal bolus calculation
Carbs entered ÷ insulin-to-carb (IC) ratio
Example of meal bolus
Carbs entered: 45 grams of carb
Insulin-to-carb ratio: 15
45 carbs ÷ 15 I/C ratio = 3 units meal bolus
Insulin-on-board (IOB) calculation
(Duration of insulin action – time since your previous bolus) ÷
(duration of insulin action)  (previous bolus)
IOB from a previous correction bolus is called “correction IOB,”
and IOB from a previous meal bolus is called “meal IOB.”
Example of correction insulin-on-board (IOB)
Duration of insulin action: 3 hours
Time since previous correction bolus: 1 hour
Previous correction bolus: 3 units
3 hours – 1 hour = 2 hours
2 hours ÷ 3 hours = 2/3
2/3  3 units = 2 units correction IOB
In other words, one hour after your previous correction bolus,
you have received only 1 unit of insulin from it; 2 units of insulin
are still working to correct your BG. This feature prevents delivering too much insulin when correcting a high BG.
145
OmniPod ENT450UK.book Page 146 Tuesday, April 19, 2016 11:36 PM
Appendix
Example of meal insulin-on-board (IOB)
Duration of insulin action: 3 hours
Time since previous meal bolus: 2 hours
Previous meal bolus: 4.5 units
3 hours – 2 hours = 1 hour
1 hours ÷ 3 hours = 1/3
1/3  4.5 units = 1.5 units meal (IOB)
In other words, two hours after your previous meal bolus, you
have received 3 units of insulin from it; 1.5 units of insulin are still
working to cover your meal.
Meal (IOB) is only used to reduce a correction bolus,
and the correction bolus is only reduced until it
becomes 0 units.
Examples of suggested bolus calculations
The examples below use these settings:
• Target BG: 5.6 mmol/L
• I/C ratio: 1:15
• Correction factor (CF): 50
• Duration of insulin action: 3 hrs
146
Example 1
Current BG level: 8.4 mmol/L
Carb intake: 0 grams of carbohydrate (carbs)
Meal (IOB): 1 units
Correction insulin on board (IOB): 1 units
Correction bolus: 8.4 mmol/L (current) – 5.6 mmol/L (target) = 50
50 ÷ 50 (CF) = 1 unit
Meal bolus: 0 (carbs) ÷ 15 (IC ratio) = 0 units
Suggested bolus dose = 1 (correction) + 0 (meal) – 2 (IOB) = 0U
Example 2
Current BG level: 8.4 mmol/L
Carb intake: 45 carbs
Meal (IOB): 0 units
Correction IOB: 0 units
Correction bolus: 8.4 mmol/L (current) – 5.6 mmol/L (target) = 50
50 ÷ 50 (CF) = 1 unit
Meal bolus: 45 (carbs) ÷ 15 (IC ratio) = 3 units
Suggested bolus dose = 1 (correction) + 3 (meal) – 0 (IOB) = 4U
OmniPod ENT450UK.book Page 147 Tuesday, April 19, 2016 11:36 PM
Appendix
Example 3
Current BG level: 5.6 mmol/L
Carb intake: 45 carbs
Meal IOB: 1 unit
Correction (IOB): 0 units
Correction bolus: 5.6 mmol/L (current) – 5.6 mmol/L (target) = 0
0 ÷ 50 (CF) = 0 units
Meal bolus: 45 (carbs) ÷ 15 (IC ratio) = 3 units
Suggested bolus dose = 0 (correction) + 3 (meal) – 0 (IOB) = 3U
Meal (IOB) is never subtracted from another meal
bolus—only from a correction bolus.
Example 4
Current BG level: 8.4 mmol/L
Carb intake: 60 carbs
Meal (IOB): 0 units
Correction (IOB:) 1 unit
Correction bolus: 8.4 mmol/L (current) – 5.6 mmol/L (target) = 50
50÷ 50 (CF) = 1 unit
Meal bolus: 60 (carbs) ÷ 15 (IC ratio) = 4 units
Suggested bolus dose = 1 (correction) + 4 (meal) – 1 (IOB) = 4U
Calculator guidelines
When the suggested bolus calculator is turned On, the mylife
OmniPod System applies these guidelines to the suggested
bolus doses:
• Suggested bolus doses are rounded down to the nearest
0.05U.
• If the total of the suggested bolus calculation (correction
bolus plus meal bolus) is less than zero, the suggested bolus
dose is 0.00U.
• The System will not suggest a bolus dose if your current
blood glucose (BG) reading is below the minimum BG you
have set for bolus calculation (see Chapter 2, Getting Started,
and Chapter 6, Using the Personal Diabetes Manager).
• The System suggests a correction bolus only when your BG
reading is above the correction threshold or correct-above
value you have set (see Chapter 2, Getting Started, and
Chapter 6, Using the Personal Diabetes Manager).
• Meal IOB, which is insulin on board from a previous meal
bolus, is subtracted first from the current correction bolus, if
any, until it is zero. However, any remaining meal IOB is never
subtracted from the current meal bolus.

Correction IOB, which is insulin on board (active insulin) from
a previous correction bolus, is then subtracted from the current correction bolus, if any remains, until it is zero. At that
point, any remaining correction IOB is subtracted from the
current meal bolus.
The calculated insulin on board is rounded up to the nearest
0.05U.
A reverse correction only occurs if the meal bolus is greater
than 0.00U.
If your blood glucose value is below the target blood glucose
value and you have set reverse correction to On, the suggested correction bolus is subtracted from the suggested
meal bolus. If you have set reverse correction to Off, the
System will not subtract insulin from the suggested meal
bolus dose.
If you manually increase or decrease the suggested bolus, the
following rules apply:
If you increase a suggested bolus, the increase is applied to
the meal bolus unless there is no meal bolus, in which case it
is applied to the correction bolus.
If you decrease a suggested bolus, the decrease is applied to
the meal bolus until it reaches zero; then it is applied to the
correction bolus. If there is no meal bolus, the decrease is
applied to the correction bolus.

n mylife OmniPod System Notice
Concerning Interference
The mylife OmniPod Insulin Management System (both the Pod
and the Personal Diabetes Manager or PDM) complies with Part
15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two
conditions:
1. These devices may not cause harmful interference.
2. These devices must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesirable operation.
Changes or modifications not expressly approved by Insulet
could void the user’s authority to operate the equipment.
Both the Pod and the PDM generate, use, and can radiate radio
frequency energy, and may cause harmful interference to radio
communications. There are no guarantees that interference will
not occur in a particular installation. If the mylife OmniPod System does cause harmful interference to radio and television
reception, the interference may be corrected by one of the following measures:
• Move or relocate the mylife OmniPod System.
• Increase the distance between the mylife OmniPod System
and the other device that is emitting or receiving interference.
Insulet Corporation declares that the mylife OmniPod System is
in compliance with the essential requirements and other rele156
vant provisions of Directive 1999/5/EC. This ISM device complies

OmniPod ENT450UK.book Page 157 Tuesday, April 19, 2016 11:36 PM
Appendix
Care should be taken if the System is used adjacent to other electrical equipment; if adjacent use is inevitable, such as in work
environments, the System should be observed to verify normal
operation in this setting.
The System communicates by low level RF energy. As with all RF
receivers, the potential for disturbance exists, even with equipment that complies with FCC and CISPR emissions requirements.
The mylife OmniPod System communicates with the following
characteristics:

where P is the maximum output power rating of the transmitter in watts (W) according to the transmitter manufacturer and
d is the recommended separation distance in meters (m).
Field strengths from fixed RF transmitters, as determined by an
electromagnetic site survey,a should be less than the compliance level in each frequency range.
Interference may occur in the vicinity of equipment marked
with the following symbol:
Note 1: At 80 MHz and 800 MHz, the higher frequency range applies.
Note 2: These guidelines may not apply in all situations. Electromagnetic propagation is affected by absorption and reflections from structures, objects, and people.

Field strengths from fixed transmitters, such as base stations for radio (cellular/cordless) telephones and land mobile radios, amateur radio,
AM and FM radio broadcast, and TV broadcast, cannot be predicted theoretically with accuracy. To assess the electromagnetic environment
due to fixed RF transmitters, an electromagnetic site survey should be considered. If the measured field strength in the location in which the
equipment is used exceeds the applicable RF compliance level above, the equipment should be observed to verify normal operation. If
abnormal performance is observed, additional measures may be necessary, such as reorienting or relocating the equipment.
Recommended Separation Distances Between Portable and Mobile RF Communications Equipment

In type 1 diabetes, the pancreas no longer makes insulin and
therefore blood glucose cannot enter the cells to be used for
energy. In type 2 diabetes, either the pancreas does not make
enough insulin or the body is unable to use insulin correctly.
Diabetic ketoacidosis (see Ketoacidosis)
Duration of insulin action
The length of time that certain types of insulin remain active and
available in your body after a bolus. This duration can vary greatly
depending on the type of insulin you take. Only use rapid-acting
insulin with the mylife OmniPod® Insulin Management System.
Extended bolus
A feature of the mylife OmniPod System that allows a meal bolus
dose to be given over an extended period of time.
Fat
One of the three main energy sources in food. (The other two are
carbohydrate and protein.) Fat is a concentrated source of energy,
providing 9 calories per gram. Foods high in fat include oils, margarine, salad dressings, red meat, and whole-milk dairy foods.
Fiber
The indigestible part of plant foods. Foods that are high in fiber
include broccoli, beans, raspberries, squash, whole-rain bread,
and bran cereal. Fiber is a type of carbohydrate but does not raise
blood glucose levels as other carbohydrates do.
Glucose
A simple sugar (also known as dextrose) used by the body for
energy. Without insulin, the body cannot use glucose for energy.
Hazard alarm
Notification by the PDM and Pod that a dangerous condition
exists.
Healthcare provider
A professional who practices medicine or teaches people how to
manage their health. All healthcare providers are a resource for
valuable diabetes management information.

Glossary
Hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c)
A test that measures a person’s average blood glucose level over
the past 2 to 3 months. Also called glycosylated hemoglobin, the
test shows the amount of glucose that sticks to the red blood cell,
which is proportional to the amount of glucose in the blood.
Hyperglycemia (high blood glucose)
A higher-than-normal level of glucose in the blood; generally
13.8 mmol/Lor higher.
Hypoglycemia (low blood glucose)
A lower-than-normal level of glucose in the blood; generally 3.9
mmol/L or lower.
Hypoglycemia unawareness
A condition in which a person does not feel or recognize the
symptoms of hypoglycemia.
Infusing
Introducing a liquid substance under the skin into the body.
Infusion site
A place on the body where an infusion set or Pod is placed and
cannula is inserted.
Insulin
A hormone that helps the body use glucose for energy. The beta
cells of a healthy pancreas make insulin.
164
Insulin on board (IOB) (active insulin)
The amount of insulin that is still “active” in the body from a previous bolus dose. In the mylife OmniPod System, insulin on board
(IOB) is considered in two parts: the Insulin on Board (IOB) from a
previous correction bolus and the IOB from a previous meal bolus.
The amount of time insulin remains “on board” or “active”
depends on each individual’s duration of insulin action. Talk with
your healthcare provider to determine your duration of insulin
action.
The mylife OmniPod System continually calculates the Insulin on
Board (IOB) to help prevent “stacking” of bolus doses, which is a
major cause of hypoglycemia.
Insulin reaction (see hypoglycemia)
Insulin-to-carbohydrate ratio (IC Ratio)
Number of grams of carbohydrate covered by one unit of insulin.
For example, if your insulin-to-carbohydrate ratio is 1:15, then
you need to deliver one unit of insulin to cover every fifteen
grams of carbohydrate you eat.
In vitro
Literally, “in glass.” Refers to a biological function taking place in a
laboratory dish rather than in a living organism.

Glossary
Ketoacidosis (diabetic ketoacidosis or DKA)
A very serious condition in which extremely high blood glucose
levels and a severe lack of insulin cause the body to break down
fat for energy. The breakdown of fat releases ketones into the
blood and urine. DKA can take hours or days to develop, with
symptoms that include stomach pain, nausea, vomiting, fruity
breath odor, and rapid breathing.
It is important to rule out ketoacidosis when you
experience symptoms that might otherwise indicate
the flu.
Ketones
Acidic by-products that result from the breakdown of fat for
energy. The presence of ketones indicates that the body is using
stored fat and muscle (instead of glucose) for energy.
Meal bolus (also known as carbohydrate bolus)
An amount of insulin administered before a meal or snack to
ensure that blood glucose levels stay within the desired BG goal
after a meal. The mylife OmniPod System calculates a meal bolus
by dividing the grams of carbohydrates you are about to eat by
your insulin-to-carbohydrate ratio.
Occlusion
A blockage or interruption in insulin delivery.
Prime bolus
An amount of insulin used to fill the cannula, preparing it to
begin delivering insulin under your skin.
Protein
One of the three main energy sources in food (the other two are
carbohydrate and fat). Protein is necessary for the growth, maintenance, and repair of body cells and tissues. Protein contains 4
calories per gram. Foods high in protein include meat, poultry,
fish, legumes and dairy products.
Reverse correction (negative correction)
Using an individual’s correction factor (sensitivity factor), the
reverse correction is a calculation that reduces a portion of a
meal bolus dose when the patient’s blood glucose level is below
their blood glucose target. This feature is an option in the mylife
OmniPod® Insulin Management System, which should be
turned on or off according to the advice of a healthcare provider.
Sensitivity factor (see correction factor)
Multiple daily injections (MDIs)
Introducing insulin into the body with a syringe several times a
day.

Glossary
Sharps
Any medical item that may cause punctures or cuts to those
handling them. Sharps include needles, syringes, scalpel blades,
disposable razors, and broken medical glassware. Dispose of
used sharps according to local waste disposal regulations.
Sharps container
A puncture-proof container used for storage and disposal of
used sharps.
Soft Key
A button on the PDM whose label or function appears on the
screen directly above the button. The label changes depending
on the task you are performing.
Subcutaneous
Under the skin.
Suggested bolus calculator
A feature that calculates bolus doses with user-specific settings
and inputs. The settings used to calculate a suggested bolus are
target BG, insulin-to-carbohydrate (IC) ratio, correction factor (CF)
and duration of insulin action. The inputs used to calculate a suggested bolus are current BG, carbs entered, and insulin on board.
The bolus calculator can be turned Off or On in the PDM.
166
Target blood glucose (BG) level
The ideal number at which you would like your blood glucose
level to be. The mylife OmniPod System uses this number in calculating bolus doses.
Temp basal
A basal rate that is used to cover predictable, short-term changes
in basal insulin need. Temporary rates are often used during exercise and for sick-day insulin adjustments.
Temporary basal preset
An adjustment in a basal rate, in either % or U/hr, that can be
assigned a custom name and preprogrammed into the PDM.
