Animas Vibe Insulin Pump
Insulin is delivered from a cartridge held inside the pump. The pump is
pre-programmed to deliver insulin continuously (basal insulin) to keep the blood glucose
constant. When any carbohydrates are eaten the carbohydrate amount needs to be entered
into the pump by the user/carer. The pump will then advise an additional dose of insulin to
be delivered (bolus insulin).
Navigating the pump
The pump is attached to a thin flexible tube – the infusion set - which is inserted into the skin
of the abdomen or buttock via a fine needle called a cannula. The cannula is held in place by
an adhesive dressing.
There are 3 buttons for the main programming functions
•
The
and buttons allow you to move through screen selections and scroll up and
down to enter values such as a blood glucose reading.
•
The
button allows you to select an item or activate a function.
How to use the Animas Vibe pump to give insulin at school
The key worker (or young person) will need to give a bolus of insulin every day when:
•
•
The child/young person’s blood glucose is greater than 14 mmols/L
Whenever the child/young person has anything to eat or drink containing
carbohydrate
How to give a bolus using ezCarb
From the main menu, go to the Bolus Menu,
scroll to ezCarb. Press OK. The ezCarb Home
screen is displayed.
The cursor will flash on the Carbs field to
indicate that you can edit the total number of
carbs eaten. Use the Up/Down arrows to enter
the number of carbs. Press OK.
Add BG is highlighted. Press OK. The BG
Correct screen is displayed.
The Actual field is highlighted and flashing to
indicate Edit mode. Use the Up/Down arrows to
enter your BG value. Press OK.
Show Result is highlighted. Press OK with Show
Result highlighted.
The Bolus Total screen is displayed and the
Total field shows the total amount of insulin
required for the bolus. Underneath the total 0.00U
will be highlighted and flashing. Press the Up
button once to change the amount to match the
suggested bolus amount.
When you have the desired delivery amount, Go is
then highlighted. Press OK to deliver.
How to give a correction bolus using ezBG

When you have the desired delivery amount, Go is then highlighted.
Press OK to deliver.

To lock the keypad press and hold both Up and Down arrows at the same time. To unlock,
repeat same action.
How to set temporary basal rates
The key worker (or young person) will need to set a temporary basal rate when:
•
The child/young person undertakes exercise
Alongside having snacks to maintain blood glucose levels during exercise, the amount of
basal insulin can also be decreased using temporary basal rates.
There pump is able to remain attached during exercise, however, it should be removed
during certain activities such as contact sports to protect the young person from injuries and
pump from damage.
From the basal menu, scroll to TEMP and press ‘OK’.
The ‘Change’ % field will flash to indicate it is in edit
mode. Use the up and down arrows to select the
percentage change desired then press OK.
The ‘Duration’ field is highlighted. Press OK so it is
flashing. Use the up and down arrows to select the
desired duration, then press OK.
‘Go’ is highlighted, press OK to start Temporary basal
The Home screen will show the Temporary Basal
Rate is active, percentage and duration.
Suspending the pump
The pump can be stopped with the suspend function. Suspend stops all basal and bolus
insulin delivery and should be used to stop delivery of an incorrect bolus while it is being
delivered, or if following hypo rules. When the pump is resumed, the basal insulin will
automatically restart. As long as the pump is suspended, it will beep or vibrate periodically e
to remind you that no insulin is being delivered.
To suspend/resume all insulin delivery
To suspend the pump, from the main menu scroll to
Suspnd/Resum, press OK. Suspend is highlighted,
press OK.
The screen will display a message reminding
you that this suspends the basal as well as all
temp basal rates and remaining bolus insulin
To resume the pump, from the main menu scroll
to Suspnd/Resum, then press OK. Resume is
highlighted, press OK.
Extra information: Alerts, Warnings and Alarms
The pump has a progressive warnings and alarms safety system. This means if you do not
confirm the warning or alarm, it will get progressive louder, and change to a sweep tone with
vibrate within one hour.
If an alarm sounds the pump screen will display a message, which can be silenced by
pressing
.
