Introduction
Thank you for ordering the Animas® ezManager® Plus International software. Animas is committed to
making diabetes management easier for you. We rely heavily on input from people with diabetes and
healthcare professionals to design our insulin pumps and insulin infusion sets. We also heard from many
people with diabetes who wanted an easier way to track BG readings, insulin intake and count
carbohydrates. The Animas® ezManager® Plus International software was designed to make it easy for
you to track all records necessary for successful management of diabetes.
The Animas® ezManager® Plus International software is more than just a carb counter. It’s a
comprehensive software program designed to help you better manage your diabetes – and communicate
more effectively with your healthcare team. The PC (personal computer) application offers expanded
functions including storing longer-term records, trending, charting, entering, viewing data, and printing
and emailing that data to your healthcare team.
The Animas® ezManager® Plus International software further enhances your diabetes self management
plan with expanded reporting capabilities and the ability to download records from selected BG (blood
glucose) meters and selected Animas® insulin pumps*. Data from selected BG meters and your pump are
all downloaded into the Animas® ezManager® Plus International software. At the click of a mouse, you
can view all of your diabetes data and view or print a variety of easy to read reports. The Animas®
ezManager® Plus International software can also be used to upload* personal settings on selected
Animas® insulin pumps.
All instructions in this User Manual apply the Animas® ezManager® Plus International software
version 6.0.1 or above, unless otherwise noted.
Note: All blood glucose units shown in screen shots in this user guide are mg/dL. For information
on how to change your blood glucose units to mmol/L, please refer to page 12.

Part C: Reports Menu
From the main screen, click on Reports (or click on the shortcut icon on the task bar
for the desired report)
Select one of the reports described below
Follow the screen prompts to generate the reports
Daily Report (Charts and Tabular Report)
This report summarizes the data for one day. Insulin,
BG and Carbohydrate charts are presented. All the
associated data (notes, meal info, BG levels, insulin
intake, activity, basal program, etc.) is presented in
tabular format.
Note: The pump stores basal delivery changes
only in Basal History. The Basal Log on the Daily
Report shows basal delivery changes only. If you
have only one basal rate set and the delivery has not
changed due to suspend, temp basal, or another rate,
etc. no basal delivery change records will be stored
or will be shown except the first delivery on the date
your basal started.
Example: On Tuesday you set your single basal rate
to 0.025 U/hr. If you download your pump for Tuesday's date, the 0.025 U/hr basal delivery will
be stored and will be shown on the report. However, if you download your pump for
Wednesday's date (or other dates thereafter) and the basal delivery has not changed, no basal
records will be stored in the pump or shown on the report.
When no basal is being delivered, the Basal History Record will show 0 units delivered. This can
happen for the following reasons:
Cartridge change
Battery change
Suspend
Alarm
Basal segment set to 0
Basal edit screen accessed
Prime menu accessed
Loss of prime
For information on basal insulin totals that have been delivered for a specific date or date range,
see the Distribution Report or the Insulin Daily Totals Report. These reports show the total basal
insulin that has been delivered for the date(s) you select. Total basal insulin that has been
delivered can be viewed directly on your pump display by going to the Total Daily Dose History
on your pump.
Page 22
Multiple Daily Reports (Charts and Tabular Report)
This report is the same as the Daily Report, except that you can select a date range of
reports to be printed at once.
Log Book (Tabular Report)
This report shows the data in a tabular format
similar to the logbook. You will have the option to
select the type of information you want to include:
BG values, insulin intake and/or carbohydrate
intake. The report contains 25 columns, one for
each hour of the day and one for the day total. For
each column, if multiple records are present, the
average value for BG is shown and the totals are
shown for insulin and carbohydrate intake. In order
to fit the data in the given area, the numbers are
rounded to the closest integer (i.e. 1.49 becomes 1
while 1.5 becomes 2). The insulin intake for each of
the 24 hours of the day is represented with one
decimal digit while all the others and the daily
totals/averages are represented as integers.
Extended boluses will be recorded as a single entry,
recorded at the time of completion.
Trend Analysis (Bar Chart)
This report shows trends in BG values, insulin intake or
carbohydrate intake. The report can be generated for the time of
day, or day of the week. The report will calculate the minimum
and maximum values for each interval and each data type and will
present it in three bar graphs. You can set the upper and lower
percentage as desired from the settings screen. See Chapter 3 for
more information.
Page 23
Distribution Report (Pie Chart)
This report shows the data distribution for
BG values, carbohydrate intake and insulin
intake. The BG values distribution is
charted using the intervals from the settings.
The carbohydrate distribution is charted
using the time of day settings. The insulin
intake distribution is charted using the type
of intake (bolus, basal, injection, etc.).
Note: Insulin pie chart will only show
bolus information with a manual entry.
After your pump is downloaded, Basal and
bolus information will both be shown.
Note: Animas® IR 1200 & 2020 Combo
Bolus amounts (both Normal and
Extended) will be displayed on this report
as Extended.
BG Chart Report (Line Chart)
This report shows the BG values and the average
value of BG measurements based on time of day or
day of week settings.
BG Distribution (Pie Chart)
This report shows the data distribution for BG values
during the different time of day settings or day of
week. The BG value distribution is charted using the
intervals from the settings.
Page 24
Insulin Daily Totals
This report shows your daily totals as downloaded
from your Animas® insulin pump. Basal Daily Total,
Bolus Daily Total and the Total Daily Amount are
graphed for the selected period of time.
Statistics (Tabular Report)
This report analyzes the BG measurement, insulin
intake and carbohydrate intake, providing useful
statistical information such as average number of
entries per time period (time of day or day of week),
minimal and maximal values, average values and
standard deviation. The “Totals” column contains
information for the entire time period under
consideration.

Page 43
The Animas® Custom Composer can be used in two ways. You can use the keyboard at the
bottom of the screen to select notes, or you can use your mouse to manually place notes on the
staff.
Using the Keyboard to Place Notes
The keys at the bottom of the screen represent a keyboard. You can create a unique tune by
playing this keyboard.
1. Select the note length manually from the “Note length” window or by right clicking your
mouse and selecting a note length from the pop up window.
2. Use the keyboard at the bottom of the screen to select the notes.
There are 3 Octave selections. Octave 3 is in yellow and contains music notes low on the
music scale. Octave 4 is in red and contains notes in the middle of the music scale. Octave
5 is in green and contains notes high on the music scale.
3. Once you click on a note, it will appear on the staff and the note will play.
4. Continue to select notes to create the tune of your choice.
5. You can also insert a pause, or “rest” after a note. The default pause is the ¼ pause. To insert a
different pause, right click on the staff and select from full pause, ½ pause, ¼ pause, ⅛ pause or
1
/16 pause from the menu.
6. If you would like to delete a note, either right click and select Delete Note or click on Edit, Delete
Note. The last note (or pause) will be deleted.

are uploading an Animas® 2020, go to Tools | Pump Extras | Pump Setup.
5. When I try to upload a tune, I cannot click on Upload Tune.
In order to upload a tune, a connection must be established between the dongle and the pump. Align
the dongle with the IR window, put the pump in Suspend and make sure the pump is not asleep.
Click on Start IR. Once the pump is connected, you can click on Upload Tune.

Download FAQs
6. When I try to download my BG meter, I receive an error message that says the PC cannot locate the
device to be downloaded.
a. Make sure that HotSync® Manager is NOT running. If you see the HotSync® icon at the bottom
right of your PC screen, right click on it and select Exit.
b. Make sure that your BG meter cable is securely inserted in your meter and check that the cable is
securely connected to the serial port on your PC.
c. Make sure that you selected the correct BG meter type from the drop down menu on the
download screen of the software.
7. When I try to download my pump, I receive an error message that says the PC cannot locate the
device to be downloaded.
a. Make sure you have followed the instructions completely. A restart of your computer is needed in
order to obtain all necessary components for the download feature.
b. Make sure your Animas® insulin pump is in the Suspend mode.
c. Make sure that HotSync® Manager is NOT running. If you see the HotSync® icon at the bottom
right of your PC screen, right click on it and select Exit.
d. Make sure that your IR adapter “dongle” is securely connected to the serial port on your PC.
e. Make sure the light (depending on model) is flashing on your IR adapter “dongle.” If it is not,
refer to the instructions that came with your Animas® IR Accessory Kit.
8. When I download my BG meter, it appears that information is being downloaded but when I try to
view it on the software, no information shows up.
Check the date on your BG meter to be sure it is current and matches your pump and PC. It may be
that the information has been downloaded but if the date on the meter is not current, the records will
download and be stored according to the date on the meter. If the date and time on your meter are not
current, change them immediately to match your PC and Animas® IR 1000, IR 1200 or 2020 insulin
pump. Once the dates/times are all correctly set, your records will download correctly.
9. When I download my pump, it appears that information is being downloaded but when I try to view
it on the Animas® ezManager® Plus International software, no information shows up.
Check the date on your pump to be sure it is current and matches your BG meter and PC. It may be
that the information has been downloaded but if the date on the pump is not current, the records will
download and be stored according to the date on the pump. If the date and time on your meter are not
current, change them immediately to match your PC and pump. Once the dates/times are all correctly
set, your records will download correctly.
10. I connected a Animas® 2020 pump by mistake. I hit stop IR, and when connected to Animas® IR
1200, the personal info fields are disabled. How do I fix this?
You must close the Pump Download screen before changing pump models. The personal info fields
will then be enabled.
11. I have another device that uses a serial or USB port. How do I close the HotSync® Manager?
To close the HotSync® Manager, right click on the icon in the bottom right corner of your PC screen
and select Exit.

Master Food Database FAQs
12. How can I delete foods from the Master Food DB?
See Chapter 7, Food Database, Deleting Items.
13. Can I edit records in the food database after I have saved them?
You can delete the item and re-enter. Please refer to Chapter 7 for details.
General FAQs
14. I’ve purchased the upgrade from an earlier version of the software to the latest version of the
Animas® ezManager® Plus International software. What do I do?
Back up your database (see Chapter 4, Part D, Exporting Data). Make sure you select the date range
to include all data you have stored to date.
15. I installed the latest version of the software and even though I picked a different directory for the
install, the database of the previous version was overwritten.
The Animas® ezManager® Plus International software is not designed to have simultaneous versions
installed on the same computer. Since both of these programs use the same database, it causes the
database to be overwritten. When you install a new version and check Options 1 or 2 on the
Animas® ezManager® Plus International software Database Update screen, all downloaded data from
the previous version is retained in the new version. NOTE: If you check Option 3 on the Animas®
ezManager® Plus International software Database Update screen, all downloaded data will be deleted
immediately. You should always back up your data prior to installing a new version of the
software.
16. How can I back up the Animas® ezManager® Plus International software database(s)?
The best way is to copy the database file named ezmdpi.mdb (this includes all reference databases,
e.g., FoodDB, ActivityDB, Insulin Types, etc.). This is installed to C:\EZMPI by default. You can
copy this file to another location on your hard drive in case of data corruption. It is recommended
that if possible, you copy to CD, zip disk, flash drive, or a network which is capable of back up of
multi-megabyte files. DO NOT use a floppy disk; this file can easily exceed the size of a floppy.
You can use the software’s import and export feature to back up your logs and other settings, which
will fit on a single floppy disk. HOWEVER, this does not back up the reference databases (e.g.,
FoodDB, ActivityDB, InsulinTypes, etc.).
17. How can I delete a log entry if I made a mistake?
See Chapter 4.
18. Can I import a 3rd party food database into the Animas® ezManager® Plus International software?
Currently, the software uses only the Animas® ezManager® Plus International software databases.
