2.1 Preparing your Handheld

Chapter 2, Getting Started

Your handheld needs to be set up for normal use as outlined in the manual provided by the manufacturer. You must have a compatible handheld with a compatible Palm

OS in order to use the ACCU-CHEK Pocket Compass software (see Chapter 12, “System Requirements”).

To confi gure the following settings on the handheld, please adhere to the instructions provided in the manufacturer’s manual.

Check the following system data

Determine the available disk space in order to see whether the ACCU-CHEK Pocket Compass software can be installed.

Carry out the following system settings

The following settings on the handheld are particularly important for using the ACCU-CHEK Pocket Compass soft ware. It is therefore better to implement these settings on the handheld prior to installation.

Select the correct display formats for

– date

– time

The display format settings you make in the handheld apply for the entire system, i.e. the settings you make here also apply, for example, to display numerical values in the

ACCU-CHEK Pocket Compass software. Therefore adjust the following settings to your normal system or the standard system for your country.

Set the correct date.

Set the correct time.

The correct time setting for both the handheld and all meters or insulin pumps used with the ACCU-CHEK Pocket

Compass software is of fundamental importance. An over all evaluation of the data stored on the different devices can only be meaningful if they are correctly correlated in time. If the times on the devices deviate too much from each other

(more than 5 minutes), the read out data is (depending on the report type) either fl agged specifi cally, displayed sepa rately (in so-called “not in sync” areas) or not taken into account at all. You should not use such data to draw conclusions for treatment.

Set the auto-off time to at least 2 minutes.

The auto-off time must be set long enough to guarantee suf fi cient time for correct infrared data transfer.

It is recommended that you activate password protec tion if you want to protect your data from unauthorized access.

ACCU-CHEK Pocket Compass Software with Bolus Calculator User Guide

Chapter 2, Getting Started

2.2 Installing the ACCU-CHEK Pocket Compass Software

If you have not already done so, install the software on your PC according to the instructions given in the separate ACCU-CHEK Pocket Com pass software “Getting

Started Guide”.

The program fi les of the ACCU-CHEK Pocket Compass soft ware for the handheld have been copied to the computer (into the Install folder of the Palm user selected during installation). They can now be transferred (using the dock ing station or another suitable connection cable) to the com patible handheld using the HotSync function.

To install the ACCU-CHEK Pocket Compass software on your handheld (via the HotSync function)

1 Insert the handheld into the docking station or connect the connection cable.

2 Press the HotSync button on the docking station or on the handheld.

The program fi les for the ACCU-CHEK Pocket Compass soft ware are installed on the handheld during HotSync data transfer.

Selecting the language when you fi rst start the program

When you start the ACCU-CHEK Pocket Compass software for the fi rst time, dialog boxes prompting you to confi gure the software appear automatically. To ensure that these dialog boxes appear in your language of choice, select the language immediately after starting the program.

1 Touch the desired language. The selected language is highlighted.

2 Confi rm your selection with OK.

The ACCU-CHEK Pocket Compass software transfers data from insulin pumps and meters. For the data to be assigned and managed correctly, each device must be connected to the ACCU-CHEK Pocket Compass software before it is used for the fi rst time. This is called

synchroniza tion (this has nothing to do with the handheld HotSync func tion). The ACCU-CHEK Pocket Compass software makes initial contact with your devices and in doing so ensures that the date and time settings of all devices agree.

Without this adjustment, it is impossible to transfer the data stored in your devices.

You must fi rst defi ne the basic settings described below.

Their dialog boxes are displayed automatically (immediately after language selection) following the initial program start (later changes to these settings are possible, see Chapter 8).

Please have all the devices that you want to use ready at the initial start of the ACCU-CHEK Pocket Compass software. If you have not already done so, please set the correct date and time on your devices. During synchronization, the ACCU-CHEK Pocket Compass software connects with all devices and checks for agreement of date and time (with a maximum tolerance of ± 2 minutes).

If you are not using either meters or insulin pumps, you must still choose some basic settings.

ACCU-CHEK Pocket Compass Software with Bolus Calculator User Guide

Chapter 2, Getting Started

To select the device types for data transfer

Immediately after starting the program for the fi rst time and selecting the language, the dialog box for selecting the device types used appears. Here you can choose whether you want to transfer data from ACCU-CHEK meters and/or an ACCU-CHEK insulin pump. If you select neither of the two options, you can only enter data manually. Each selection made here can be changed or expanded later. However, if you add another device, a new synchronization of all devices will be needed (see Chapter 8.3, “Transfer Setup”).

1 If you use a compatible ACCU-CHEK meter and you want to transfer its data using the ACCU-CHEK

Pocket Compass soft ware, activate the Meter checkbox. You can use up to 16 meters with the

ACCU-CHEK Pocket Compass soft ware.

2 If you use a compatible ACCU-CHEK insulin pump and you want to transfer its data using the ACCU-CHEK

Pocket Compass software, activate the Pump checkbox. In this case the Bolus Calculator checkbox appears as another option that you can activate.

3 If you activate the Bolus Calculator checkbox, a dialog box informs you of the Bolus Calculator being avail able after you have synchronized your pump.

Confi rm the dialog box with OK.

4 If you do not want to transfer data from either of the device types, deactivate both checkboxes.

Chapter 2, Getting Started

It is not guaranteed that the times of the devices agree before synchronization takes place. Therefore only the data that has been stored in the devices after initial synchroniza-

tion is dis played without any restrictions. The data prior to

synchroni zation is (depending on the report type) either fl agged specifi cally, displayed separately (in so-called “not in sync” areas) or not taken into account at all. This also applies to data with a date/time deviation that lies outside the allowed tolerance of 5 minutes. You should not use such data to draw conclusions for treatment.

Chapter 2, Getting Started

2.4 Synchronizing the ACCU-CHEK Pocket Compass Software and the Selected Devices

As described previously, the synchronization process is of fundamental importance for evaluating meter or insulin pump data. A time deviation (between insulin pump and meter) would mean that the times of insulin administration and blood glucose test results are no longer correctly related to each other in the report. This could result in misleading conclusions being drawn from the therapyrelevant data.

For this reason, the ACCU-CHEK Pocket Compass software considers the following criteria:

Data is only transferred from devices that have pre viously been synchronized with the ACCU-CHEK

Pocket Compass software.

The dates and times of the devices involved must agree in order to be displayed in the reports without any restrictions. If the system detects a time deviation of at least ± 4 minutes while reading out the devices, a message is displayed prompting you to correct the deviation as soon as possible while performing a new synchronization.

If the system detects a deviation of ± 5 minutes out-

side the tolerance range while transferring devices, the read out data is (depending on the report type) either fl agged specifi cally, displayed separately (in so-called “not in sync” areas) or not taken into account at all. You should on no account use such data to draw conclusions for treatment.

Confi rm the dialog box with OK, to continue with

synchronization.

ACCU-CHEK Pocket Compass Software with Bolus Calculator User Guide

23

Chapter 2, Getting Started

24

To prepare for initial synchronization

Ensure that all the devices you use (handheld, meters and insulin pump) have the same date and time settings. Small deviations (max. ± 2 minutes during synchronization) are tolerated.

1 Have all devices ready from which you want to transfer data. You will synchronize them one at a

time (not all at the same time, because infrared com munication can be disrupted if multiple devices try to communicate simultaneously).

2 The infrared windows of the devices currently being synchronized (i.e. handheld/pump or handheld/ meter) must be facing each other at a distance of about 10-15 cm (4-6 inches).

3 Depending on the devices you have selected, proceed as follows:

– If you are using an insulin pump and meter(s), the pump must be synchronized fi rst. Leave the meters turned off until synchronization of the pump is com plete. Activate infrared communication for the pump.

– If you are using meters exclusively, fi rst turn on only one meter and activate infrared communication for this device.

If you have activated the use of an insulin pump and/or meters in the settings, you are prompted to perform a syn-

chronization at each program start until a synchronization has been successfully completed. If you have activated this option by mistake or decided at a later time to not read out the devices, deactivate the corresponding checkboxes via

Transfer Setup in the Options menu. This prevents syn-

chro nization from being started automatically.

ACCU-CHEK Pocket Compass Software with Bolus Calculator User Guide

Chapter 2, Getting Started

To perform initial synchronization

If you have prepared the devices according to the above instructions, you can start synchronization. If you cancel the synchronization process (with No), it will automatically be repeated with each program start (until it is successfully completed for the fi rst time).

Synchronization runs in the order: insulin pump – meter 1 – meter 2 …, and non-selected devices are omitted. Depending on the selected device types for data transfer, you will now see either the dialog box for pump synchronization or the dialog box for meter synchronization.

To synchronize the insulin pump

1 To start synchronization, touch Yes.

2 Activate infrared communication. Confi rm preparation completion with OK.

3 Confi rm that you wish to use the newly detected insulin pump with Yes. If you have not selected to use any meters, confi rm successful synchronization of the pump with Finish.

4 If you have selected to use meters, confi rm continuation of meter synchronization with Yes.

5 Deactivate infrared communication of the insulin pump.

6 Take the pump out of the range of infrared communica tion. Switch the insulin pump back to RUN mode.

ACCU-CHEK Pocket Compass Software with Bolus Calculator User Guide

Chapter 2, Getting Started

To synchronize the fi rst meter

1 To start synchronization, touch Yes.

2 Activate infrared communication of the meter.

Confi rm preparation completion with OK.

3 Confi rm that you wish to use the newly detected meter with Yes.

4 If you want to use only one meter, answer the question requesting another synchronization with

No.

5 Turn the meter off and take it out of the range of infra red communication.

To synchronize the second meter

6 If you want to use another meter, answer the question requesting another synchronization with

Yes.

7 Activate infrared communication of the meter.

8 Proceed with synchronization as for the fi rst device.

Once the ACCU-CHEK Pocket Compass software has synchro nized all devices, this setup process is complete.

3 Care and Maintenance

Chapter 3, Care and Maintenance

It is very important to properly care for your compatible handheld as recommended by its manufacturer.

The ACCU-CHEK Pocket Compass software is stored on a handheld that, depending on the model, has no powerinde pendent storage media (i.e. a device used to keep and retrieve data); therefore, the permanent preservation of all stored data depends on power supply. The remaining battery life is displayed by a battery symbol in the upper part of the handheld screen.

Drained batteries may lead to deletion of the handheld mem ory. Battery life varies depending on use.

In order to avoid loss of data, it is recommended that you recharge the batteries before they are empty. Consult your handheld manual for more detail.

It is important to HotSync on a regular basis. This backs up the data stored on the handheld onto your PC, and in case data is lost (e.g. due to drained batteries), the records can easily be copied back on to your handheld. For further information on data backup, see Chapter 10.

All diary entries are saved with a date and time. As the max imum memory capacity is reached, the oldest entries are deleted when new entries are made. The original source of the record (insulin pump, meter, bolus calculator or manu ally made entry) is displayed by the appropriate icon. A cal culator is displayed for entries created using the bolus calculator. Entries that were manually created without the bolus calculator are marked by a pen.

You can save information about insulin dosages, the amount of carbohydrates taken in, reminders and events.

This infor mation can be linked with a blood glucose test or entered independently of such a test. Using this information, you can get a clearer picture of your blood glucose levels. Regularly recording and reviewing this information assists you and your healthcare professional in improving your treatment.

You can enter data manually or transfer data from a suitable blood glucose meter or insulin pump by infrared data trans fer. Manually entered blood glucose and insulin results are marked as such and may be changed and deleted by the user.

It is not possible to edit results transferred from a meter or insulin pump. You can, however, change all additional infor mation linked to a diary entry or exempt individual records from the reports using the “Invalid” event.

In order to avoid manually entered blood glucose or pump insulin results being duplicated in the diary by subsequently transferring data from the meter or insulin pump (and thus being incorporated in reports twice), the manually entered result is replaced by the result being transferred. These replaced results are marked by the letter -R- and can no longer be changed manually. By touching such a result, you will get information on the originally entered result.

1 Touch the icon next to the Data “not in sync”

message.

2 Activate Convert to “sync record” checkbox.

The converted data is managed in the same way as manual entries. Should the “not in sync” categorization be due to a time deviation that is known to you, it is recommended that you manually correct this deviation.

What happens to reminders if you delete the diary entry?

All reminders are always transferred from the ACCU-CHEK

Pocket Compass software to the calendar in the Palm OS.

Thus, you can retain a reminder even if you have deleted the related diary entry.

However, if you delete the entry from the Palm OS calendar, the reminder is automatically deleted from the diary.

What happens to reminders when you change the date and/or time in your handheld?

Do not change the date and time of your handheld without any reason if you have saved reminders.

By changing the date/time settings of your handheld, pend ing reminders are triggered at the wrong point in time or are mistakenly treated as already triggered.

Therefore, only change the date and time with good reason, or better still, when no more reminders are pending. If this is not possible:

1 Display the list of pending reminders before

changing the time setting (see page 83).

2 Write down the reminder times and reasons.

3 Then save again the reminders that are affected by the time change.

Naming your insulins

112

The ACCU-CHEK Pocket Compass software allows you to assign specifi c labels or “names” to three insulins. These labels are displayed later in the diary when you use that type of insulin. When entering insulin names, please distinguish between pump insulin and syringe/pen insulin.

If you are using the ACCU-CHEK Pocket Compass software with an insulin pump, Pump is set for pump insulin. Enter the name of your pump insulin here.

If you also use a syringe or pen, enter the name of your short-acting insulin under Bolus, and the name of your long-acting insulin under Basal. In the Daily Sums report

(see Chapter 6.5), the total insulin amounts are displayed as fol lows:

Long-acting insulin plus basal rate insulin delivered by the pump in the “Basal” column (blue values)

Pump and Bolus in the “Bolus” column (purple

values)

If you do not use a pump, enter the names of your shortacting insulins under Bolus 1 and Bolus 2. Enter the name of your long-acting insulin under Basal. In the Daily Sums report, these total insulin amounts are displayed as follows:

Long-acting insulin in the “Basal” column (blue

values)

6 Touch Back button to return to the Options menu, or touch the Menu button to return to the main menu.

Please take care that if you change existing insulin names at a later date, you do not wrongly interpret entries that have already been saved because the old insulin name is no longer visible. This is especially important if your new insu lin works in a different way (e.g. when you change from human insulin to analog insulin).

Timeblock defi nition

By setting up timeblocks, you divide a 24-hour day into eight time periods, each one defi ned by important regular events (e.g. main meals). You can adjust the start time of each time period. The table below provides detailed infor mation on timeblocks.

You need to enter only the start time for each timeblock.

The ACCU-CHEK Pocket Compass software automatically calcu lates the end time as soon as you enter the start time for the following timeblock. Example:

When you enter the start time for the period “BB”

(Before Breakfast), the software automatically calcu lates the end time for the period “Nt” (Night).

When you set the start time for “AB” (After Breakfast), the software automatically calculates the end time for “BB” (Before Breakfast).

Talk to your healthcare professional about setting up timeblocks. Decide together which settings suit your habits best and allow ther apy-relevant conclusions to be drawn.

8.4 Foods

Chapter 8, Options

The ACCU-CHEK Pocket Compass software features a carbo hydrate calculator that accesses the food list selected during installation. By installing the food list, the most common food components and their characteristic values are avail able for selection.

In addition, you can add your own food components and combine them into entire meals. This combination option allows you to access most often selected values more quickly and is always useful when you eat certain meals regularly.

The carbohydrate calculator is available both during carbo hydrate entry in the diary and in the bolus calculator.

The calculated result is exclusively based on the food you selected, the related nutritive values and the quantities you entered. Therefore, it is very important (especially for self-defi ned food and meals) that you enter the nutritive values and amounts correctly for the calculation results to be appli cable.

If data entered while adding components is incorrect and lies outside the ranges defi ned in the software, a message is displayed to this effect. If, however, the data is wrong, but plausible, no message is displayed. Therefore, it is important that you always carefully review your entries.

The food list is intended as a guideline for estimating nutri ent values when dealing with food and drinks in your day-to-day life. Please note that the information represents

average values and that these values can vary from country to coun try.

Chapter 9, Data Transfer

9.1 Transferring (“Reading Out”) Device Data

Only transfer data from your own devices. Otherwise, other peoples’ results could get mixed with yours and lead to mis interpretations. If invalid data (e.g. from other people) is stored in your ACCU-CHEK Pocket Compass soft ware, you must mark these as “Other’s Result” or “Invalid”. Appropriate events are available to do this (see Chapter 5.10). Data marked like this will no longer be used in reports.

Ensure that all the devices you use have the same time and date settings. If this is not the case, data transferred from

“not in sync” devices is (depending on the report type) either fl agged specifi cally, displayed separately (in so-called

“not in sync” areas) or not taken into account at all.

If an imminent time deviation is detected while transferring data from a device, a corresponding warning message is displayed. This enables you to transfer all data from your devices in time, correct the time settings and then resynchronize the devices.

Transfer data from meters and pumps regularly (at least every 2 weeks). If you are not sure when the last data trans fer was performed and which meter was used, you can dis play this information (see page 136).

Chapter 9, Data Transfer

Normally your devices are synchronized directly after instal lation of the ACCU-CHEK Pocket Compass software

(see Chapter 2.4). Manual synchronization must be carried out if you want to use a new or additional device, if you have changed the date and/or time or you have noticed discrepan cies in the time settings during data transfer.

The synchronization process sets a new “start point” in time for data transfer. If your devices have already been synchronized, you should transfer all stored data to the ACCU-CHEK

Pocket Compass software before you start a new synchroni zation. After synchronization, device data stored with time information prior to synchronization will be adopted as “not in sync” data (see Chapter 5.4).

To ensure that the date and time settings of all devices match, all devices used (for transferring data) must be syn chronized at the same time. Subsequent synchronization of individual devices is not supported.

Appendix A, Bolus Calculator Basics

The following pages provide you with a detailed explanation of the principles behind the bolus calculator. Here you will fi nd answers to important questions about the functions of the bolus calculator and how it operates, such as:

Who can use the bolus calculator?

How does the bolus calculator support you?

How does the bolus calculator operate?

How are exceptional circumstances handled?

ACCU-CHEK Pocket Compass Software with Bolus Calculator User Guide

145

Appendix A, Bolus Calculator Basics

1.1 Who Can Use the Bolus Calculator?

As with any specialized tool, you need to know certain things in order to use the bolus calculator. You need to be completely familiar with your insulin pump therapy and be able to judge yourself and your own current physical state as well as possible.

The bolus calculator does exactly what the name says: it cal culates. This can make it much easier to determine the cur rently required bolus. You and your healthcare provider provide the values on which these calculations are based.

Though this may be simple enough as long as it involves determining a current blood glucose test result, it can be a real challenge if you have to estimate an increased or decreased insulin requirement under certain conditions.

It is therefore very important that you follow the safety information listed in the chapter, “Using the

Bolus Calcu lator”. The safety information is based mainly on the fact that the benefi t and correctness of the calculated results depend on many factors, but primarily on the care with which you handle them.

For this reason, the bolus calculator is intended exclusively for use only by well-trained individuals who manage insulin pump therapy for themselves or others.

You can use the bolus calculator only if you have synchronized an ACCU-CHEK Spirit insulin pump with the

ACCU-CHEK Pocket Compass soft ware.

146 ACCU-CHEK Pocket Compass Software with Bolus Calculator User Guide

1.2 How Does the Bolus Calculator Support You?

Appendix A, Bolus Calculator Basics

What the bolus calculator can do

Actually, the name “bolus calculator” already precisely describes the function of this tool:

The bolus calculator calculates insulin boluses on the basis of current blood glucose test results, intended food intake and other individual user parameters.

The parameters used for this purpose and the values included in the calculation are fully explained on the follow ing pages. Terms used here such as “parameter” may seem complicated, but the bolus calculator of the

ACCU-CHEK Pocket Compass software carries out its func tions simply and clearly: The complexity remains hidden “behind” the program’s user interface, invisible to the user.

The bolus calculator evaluates information from two sources: the settings (“parameters”) in which you have stored your own diabetes-related values, and the currently recorded values for blood glucose and carbohydrates. A bolus is calculated in three easy steps:

ACCU-CHEK Pocket Compass Software with Bolus Calculator User Guide

147

Appendix A, Bolus Calculator Basics

1 Enter the current blood glucose result.

2 If you want to eat, enter the corresponding carbohydrate amount either directly or by means of the carbohydrate calculator.

3 If necessary, adjust the calculation for individual changes in your metabolic situation.

The bolus is now calculated, based on the information you entered and the settings mentioned before.

What the bolus calculator cannot do

The bolus calculator is a calculator. It is not able to judge your current physical state independently of your own estima tion nor can it correct possible input errors. This is particu larly true for the carbohydrate amount entered or the entries you made to calculate the carbohydrate amount using the carbohydrate calculator.

Entries that exceed plausible limits are recognized as such. In this case, you will be prompted to check the entry and cor rect it, if necessary. As long as the entries fall within a plau sible range, however, their accuracy cannot be checked. This is where, as already mentioned, a precise awareness of your actual current physical state is of crucial importance.

148 ACCU-CHEK Pocket Compass Software with Bolus Calculator User Guide

1.3 How Does the Bolus Calculator Operate?

Appendix A, Bolus Calculator Basics

Along with the basic values, blood glucose and carbohy-

drates, there is a whole series of information required in order to optimize the calculation to match your needs to the greatest possible extent. Different people have different sen sitivities to insulin (“insulin sensitivity”), for example due to differences in their constitutions, or different daily rhythms. These factors must be taken into account in order for the result of a bolus calculation to be correct.

This is why you must make certain settings. No bolus calcu lation is possible without these entries. It is important that you discuss this step with your healthcare professional. The following is an overview of the information that must be entered into the ACCU-CHEK Pocket

Compass software. For an example of the personal parameter table that you generate together with your healthcare professional, see page 156.

ACCU-CHEK Pocket Compass Software with Bolus Calculator User Guide

149

Appendix A, Bolus Calculator Basics

Units

This data provides information on the Units used:

The right choice of units is crucial if the calculated results are to be accurate. All other input values (page 151) as well as the personal parameters determined together with your healthcare professional (see page 156) refer to the units you select here.

The unit for carbohydrates

The unit for blood glucose

The unit for the carbohydrate ratio

The unit for insulin sensitivity.

The carbohydrate ratio defi nes the amount of insulin needed to compensate for a certain amount of carbohydrates consumed.

The insulin sensitivity (correction factor) describes the

“sen sitivity” to a dose of insulin, i.e. the decrease in blood glu cose in response to a predefi ned amount of insulin.

The input fi elds for carbohydrate ratio and insulin sensitivity shown here are just for selecting the units or ratios

(that are used in the calculations). The values themselves are actually entered in the Factors menu option described in the next section.

150 ACCU-CHEK Pocket Compass Software with Bolus Calculator User Guide

Appendix A, Bolus Calculator Basics

Factors

The Factors area allows you to make settings to take account of the following important aspect: Your insulin requirement varies depending on the time of day. Using the same values and factors throughout the course of the day would not necessarily match your own personal metabolism and daily rhythm. This could lead to inappropriate or poorly adjusted dosages of insulin.

Here you can defi ne up to eight blocks (time periods)

– depending on your own personal daily rhythm – for the time-dependent factors used in calculating a bolus. In order to match your changing insulin requirement you might, for example, defi ne different ranges and values for morning or evening hours than for the middle of the day or at night.

You are free to choose when a time period is to begin or end to suit your personal lifestyle. You do not have to fi t any pre determined time grid.

Your target range for blood glucose results, defi ned by an upper and a lower value, may change over the course of the day, as can the carbohydrate ratio and the insulin

sensitivity. You can defi ne all of these values separately for each block. Depending on the time of day at which the calculation is per formed, the bolus calculator then automatically takes these values into account.

ACCU-CHEK Pocket Compass Software with Bolus Calculator User Guide

151

Appendix A, Bolus Calculator Basics

General parameters

After having defi ned the units and factors used, you then enter special limits. These limits enable the bolus calculator to issue warnings that call your attention to any undesirable development in your blood glucose values.

The High bG Warning sets the corresponding limit for blood glucose results that are too high. When this blood glucose value is reached or exceeded, a warning message is issued to regularly control your blood glucose and insulin dosage.

The Low bG Warning sets the corresponding limit for blood glucose results that are too low. Here, too, a warning mes sage appears, in this case prompting you to eat fast-acting carbohydrates.

The Low bG Alert (hypoglycemic alarm threshold) is below the Low bG Warning along the test result scale. If your blood glucose result reaches or falls below this limit, you are also prompted to eat fast-acting carbohydrates. In this case, the appropriate carbohydrate amount that you should consume according to your current blood glucose value is calculated as well. No bolus calculation is carried out, however.

152 ACCU-CHEK Pocket Compass Software with Bolus Calculator User Guide

Appendix A, Bolus Calculator Basics

The Meal Excursion parameter (post-meal blood glucose) takes another normal event into consider ation. In the period of time following a meal, the blood glu cose result usually increases by an appreciable amount. The following diagram illustrates a typical progression of the blood glucose level after a meal (blue line).

Tolerance range

(for meal excursion)

The bolus calculator takes the rise following a meal into account and tolerates an increase in the blood glucose result within a certain range (green area), without calculating an additional correction bolus.

Target value

The duration (width of the green fi eld) is determined by the Acting Time parameter. The Acting Time describes the entire time period for which the increase in blood glucose following a meal is taken into account.

Progression of post-meal blood glucose levels

The fall in the curve (start of a decreasing blood glucose value) shown in the diagram starts after the so-called

Offset Time has expired. The Offset Time describes the fi rst time period within the Acting Time by which the fall in the blood glucose level is offset.

If you eat another meal during the time in which your blood glucose value falls within the green area, the allowed increase following a meal is again taken into consideration.

ACCU-CHEK Pocket Compass Software with Bolus Calculator User Guide

153

Appendix A, Bolus Calculator Basics

Offset Time and Acting Time also apply for correction boluses. These parameters help to prevent potential sources of error, such as double or overdosage due to underestima tion of the acting time of an insulin dose. This could lead to hypoglycemia.

The Acting Time can be set in a range from 90 to 480 min utes, depending on the “speed” of your own metabolic pro cesses. The Offset Time must be at least 45 minutes and is limited upwards by the acting time.

The Snack Size is another default parameter that defi nes a certain amount of carbohydrates for which a meal bolus is calculated but no Meal Excursion is triggered. No Meal

Excursion is tolerated for this amount of carbohydrates. A correction bolus would then be used to compensate for any increase in blood glucose caused by a snack.

The Daily Insulin Dose serves as additional information for reviewing the relation between the daily insulin dose and the calculated single dose. Unusually high values trigger a warning message, thus prompting you to check your entries.

The last parameter of the default settings is the Bolus

Incre ment of the insulin pump that you are using. This serves to round off the calculated bolus quantities to match your insu lin pump’s input requirements, thereby allowing you to enter the values directly, after you review them in detail.

154 ACCU-CHEK Pocket Compass Software with Bolus Calculator User Guide

Appendix A, Bolus Calculator Basics

1.4 How Are Exceptional Circumstances Handled?

If your daily routine were to always remain absolutely iden tical from one day to the next, then the settings mentioned above would provide enough information to calculate suit able boluses. This is usually not the case, however.

In order to handle certain exceptional circumstances, you need to be able to calculate a bolus that differs from the

“normally” calculated result.

Examples of such exceptional circumstances are changes in metabolism. Activities such as sports or physical work may change the insulin requirement, just as illnesses or the men strual cycle can, too. Since these deviations do not occur at perfectly regular intervals, using blocks (daily time periods) to account for them is both senseless and impossible.

For this reason, you can defi ne an exceptional insulin requirement for recurring events. This deviation is specifi ed in the basic setup parameters of the bolus calculator

(as a percentage of the insulin requirement) – for example, “When playing badminton, my insulin requirement is

50% lower”.

If a bolus is then calculated, you can select the desired adjustment whenever one of the given situations arises.

If none of the adjustments that you have defi ned applies to the situation, you are also free to directly modify the calcu lated value manually, either as a percentage or as an absolute value. Here again, the ability to accurately estimate your own condition is of crucial importance.

Safety information regarding the confi guration and use of the bolus calculator

The bolus calculator is only available to users who have syn chronized an insulin pump with the ACCU-CHEK

Pocket Compass software and have activated the Bolus

Calculator option in the Transfer Setup menu.

The bolus calculator calculates a bolus for you that is adapted to changing times of day and situations.

Important information regarding the confi guration (Bolus

Calc. Setup) and use of the bolus calculator is presented below. Please read it through completely before you con tinue.

Safety information on bolus calculator settings

It is very important to discuss the required basic settings with your healthcare professional. In fact, the best approach is to set up the bolus calculator together with your healthcare professional.

The calculated result is based exclusively on your default settings and entries. Therefore, before you use the bolus cal culator, you must be familiar with your therapy data and able to enter it correctly.

If data entered during confi guration is incorrect and lies outside the ranges defi ned in the software, a warning mes sage is displayed to this effect. If, however, the data is wrong but plausible, no message is displayed.

Therefore it is important that you carefully review your entries.

ACCU-CHEK Pocket Compass Software with Bolus Calculator User Guide

157

Appendix B, Using the Bolus Calculator

How to use the bolus calculator

The bolus calculator calculates insulin doses based on many different pieces of information, such as

– the values you entered in the setup;

– your current blood glucose result;

– the carbohydrate amount you entered either directly or using the carbohydrate calculator.

Always compare your result with the way you actually feel and adjust it, if necessary.

Always carry out the actions entered in the bolus calculator without delay.

The following information is not taken into account when the bolus calculator is used

It is possible that the values entered during confi guration do not match the way your body actually feels. In this case, you can increase or reduce the calculated insulin dose to adjust it to your needs.

Insulin doses and meals taken before the bolus calcula-

tor is used for the fi rst time cannot be refl ected in the calculation. The same applies for insulin doses and meals that were taken without using the bolus calculator.

Before calculating a bolus, the bolus calculator checks whether you have entered insulin amounts or carbohydrates in the diary without using the bolus calculator. If you did, a warning message is displayed notifying you that these insu lin amounts saved independently of the bolus calculator cannot be taken into account in the current calculation.

158 ACCU-CHEK Pocket Compass Software with Bolus Calculator User Guide

Appendix B, Using the Bolus Calculator

The following circumstances can affect the results of the bolus calculator

Do not change the time in the handheld without good reason when you are using the bolus calculator.

The bolus calculator stores a few time values (for use in future calculations). Since the handheld does not log a change in system time, the bolus calculator cannot take this time change into account. This time change infl uences, among other things, the duration of an acting time that is currently in effect. Therefore, make necessary time and date changes only when no acting time is in effect.

Warning messages about your blood glucose level

After your blood glucose result has been entered (or read out), warning messages about your blood glucose level may be displayed. Please take careful note of these messages. If your blood glucose result is much too low, you will be prompted to eat a certain amount of carbohydrates, for example, to prevent the risk of hypoglycemia.

Summary

It is essential that you discuss the necessary basic set tings with your healthcare professional.

Check all your entries thoroughly.

The bolus calculator is only available to users who use a compatible insulin pump with the ACCU-CHEK Pocket

Com pass software and have synchronized it. If this applies to you, the bolus calculator can be activated as an option in Transfer Setup (see page 118).

To ensure that the calculations made by the bolus calculator are as individualized as possible, you must make a few basic settings before using the bolus calculator for the fi rst time. Bolus calculations cannot be carried out until these basic set tings have been completely entered.

It is essential that you discuss the necessary basic settings with your healthcare professional before you start using the bolus calculator. These settings must be made with the greatest care since they affect all future calculations.

Always compare your result with the way you actually feel and adjust it, if necessary.

Of the four setup areas provided, you must set up the fi rst three completely and in the order given (starting with

Units, since the settings that follow are based on what you enter here). Small asterisks appear to the left of the menu items and they indicate that a setup is incomplete or miss ing. Once setup is complete, the asterisks change to checkmarks.

The fourth setup area (Adjustment) is not mandatory for using the bolus calculator. However, this area gives you the option of predefi ning percentage increases or decreases in the calculated insulin dose, which may be called for in cer tain conditions (e.g. physical activity, stress, illness). These adjustments can then be called up and applied later “at the touch of a button” (see page 172).

Calculation factors

If you subsequently change the unit settings, all calculation factor data based on these settings are deleted

(see below). You must then repeat your entries to again complete the required basic settings.

It is important to make the correct selection for carbohy-

drate ratio and insulin sensitivity. If you select the wrong ratio (calculation basis), all future results will be incorrect.

The result of a bolus calculation depends on the time the bolus is administered. Insulin sensitivity and carbohydrate ratio (and consequently insulin requirements) may change several times over the course of a day. To refl ect this situa tion, you can create different parameter records for different parts of the day (up to 8 blocks).

As long as you have not defi ned these blocks of time, there is only one block that covers 24 hours. The parameters assigned to this block therefore apply to the entire day. As soon as you defi ne an end time for this block that is not 11:59 pm, another block appears that starts one minute after the fi rst block ends, and this second block ends at 11:59 pm. When an end time is entered for the second block, the third block appears, etc., up to a maximum of 8 blocks. This prin ciple (entering the end time for a block sets the starting time for the next block) also applies to subsequent changes made to an already defi ned block. So, if you want a block to start earlier or later, just change the end time of the previous block. To merge blocks, move the end time of the fi rst rele vant block to the end time of the last relevant block.

Meal Excursion

During or after meals, an increase in blood glucose levels is considered normal within a certain range, even though a meal bolus has been delivered. Enter here the maximum increase in your blood glucose result that is to be tolerated without an additional correction bolus. This tolerance applies to the Acting Time described below.

Acting Time

The Acting Time parameter allows factors such as the acting time of the insulin and the increase in blood glucose value after the meal to be taken into account. You can adjust the length of the acting time to your individual needs, within a specifi ed interval (90 to 480 minutes). The acting time is divided in two areas by the Offset Time.

Offset Time

The fi rst part of the Acting Time (Offset Time) takes into account the expected delay for the blood glucose level to actually fall due to the acting insulin.

The second part of the acting time assumes a linear decrease of the blood glucose level (see pages 153-154).

Snack Size

Enter the maximum amount of carbohydrates that is not to be counted as a regular meal with the expected Meal

Excur sion. In this case (in contrast to regular meals), an increase in your blood glucose result is not tolerated since the Meal Excursion factor is not triggered as an additional calculation basis.

Daily Insulin Dose

The Daily Insulin Dose is the total amount of bolus and basal insulin you need on average daily. Single doses calcu lated by the bolus calculator are always checked for their proportion to the Daily Insulin Dose entered here.

Exces sively high single doses lead to warning messages.

Bolus Increment

Select the increment that you entered on your insulin pump (e.g. 0.1 or 0.5 IU). You can only enter the values calculated by the bolus calculator into the pump exactly as they are if the increments in the bolus calculator and the pump are the same (and rounded accordingly).

The bolus calculator now displays the result. This display shows the values that were included in the calculation and their conversion to the calculated dose. The total dose calcu lated from these individual values (rounded for the bolus increment of your pump) is displayed at the bottom.

If the calculated bolus does not refl ect how you actually feel, you can manually correct the previously selected adjustment and its reason.

1 Touch the value displayed for the percentage adjust ment (“-50 %” in this example) or touch the value for the dose (“-1.6 IU” in this example) to enter the values directly.

2 Use the screen keypad to enter the desired value and confi rm your entry by touching OK.

If the calculated bolus is equal to “0”, touch Next to return directly to the diary entry. In this case, no further information about the bolus delivery type is required.

If the calculated value is greater than “0”, touch OK to con fi rm that you will deliver this dose as shown.

For the bolus information manually generated by the bolus calculator to be correctly processed with the pump data that is later transferred, it is important that you enter the correct delivery type (pump or syringe) in the next step. The infor mation you provide is then saved in the diary (together with the test result used).

Appendix B, Using the Bolus Calculator

To enter bolus delivery type of the calculated bolus for syringe/pen

If you want to deliver the bolus with a syringe rather than a pump:

The diary entry that was created based on the previous bolus calculation and the subsequent entries is then displayed.

The icon indicates a diary entry that was created using the bolus calculator. If you touch this icon, the overview of the calculation is displayed.

Appendix B, Using the Bolus Calculator

The following information is available in the Detail screen:

If you touch the Insulin icon, the screen for select ing the bolus type is shown again (see page 174 and page 175).

The boluses created with the bolus calculator are ini tially stored in the diary as “manual values generated by the bolus calculator” (Insulin icon). The insu lin dose cannot be changed. The type of delivery (pump or syringe/pen) can be changed up to the point when values are read out from the pump for the period of time that includes this entry. If you have selected Pump as the type of delivery and later transfer data from the pump for the period of time that includes this entry, the icon changes to “data transfer from the pump” ( ).

In the Diary and Detail screens, -R- or Replaced is still displayed instead of the insulin value. To view the manual entries you originally made, touch the letter -R- (in list view) or the Pump icon (in the

Detail screen).
