Basal and Bolus

Understanding Basal and Bolus

The Veo

allows you to set multiple Basal rates. The Basal insulin is delivered throughout the day and night to cover your insulin needs between meals and at night. When you exercise, you can reduce the Basal rate so that your blood glucose does not drop too low. When you are sick or have an infection, you can increase the Basal rate. This will keep your blood glucose from going up too high.

The Veo

allows you to give a Bolus, or dose of insulin, on demand, when you eat. You can also increase or decrease your meal Bolus based on the foods you choose to eat. A Bolus may also be used to lower an elevated blood glucose. This is called a correction Bolus.

Your healthcare professional will calculate these rates for you.

Bolus Wizard

The

Bolus Wizard

performs all the calculations needed to manage your insulin dosing and reduce the potential for hypoglycemia, by calculating:

Correction Boluses

when glucose is out of target range

Meal Boluses

, if you are able to calculate your carbohydrates

Before using the

Bolus Wizard

, you must determine the following settings with your diabetes care team:

Carbohydrate-insulin ratio

(Carb Ratio): the amount of carbohydrate covered by 1 unit of insulin.

You may have diff erent ratios for diff erent meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) or diff erent times of the day. This ratio may also be diff erent during physical exercise.

Insulin sensitivity factor

(Ins Sensitivity): corresponds to the decrease in your blood glucose when 1 unit of insulin is bolused.

Your sensitivity to insulin may vary throughout the day. This factor may also be diff erent during physical exercise.

Blood glucose targets

(BG Target): the two values that you would ideally like your blood glucose to stay between.

Active insulin duration

(Active Ins Time): how long the insulin will have a glucose lowering eff ect in your body once it has been bolused.

WARNING

If you do not know your personal settings, do not use this function and discuss it with your diabetes care team.

Safety Information

Continuous glucose monitoring systems are limited to sale by or on the order of a physician and should only be used under the direction of a healthcare professional familiar with the risks associated with the use of these systems.

Continuous glucose monitoring systems are intended for monitoring interstitial glucose levels in persons with diabetes. These systems provide information regarding potential high and low glucose levels and can provide an indication of when patients should obtain a glucose reading using a home glucose meter. The information provided by continuous glucose monitoring systems is intended to supplement, not replace, readings from a home glucose meter. Patients should always confirm glucose level information provided by a continuous glucose monitoring system before making adjustments to diabetes therapy. A version of the product specially designed for children is indicated for patients age 7–17.

Insertion of a glucose sensor may cause bleeding or irritation at the insertion site. Consult a physician immediately if you experience significant pain or if you suspect that the site is infected.

Enlite™ sensor is not labeled for use with Medtronic

Connecting the MiniLink

Transmitter

After the glucose sensor is inserted and your settings are entered, wait 15 minutes before connecting the MiniLink

transmitter to the glucose sensor.

Once 15 minutes have passed, remove the MiniLink

transmitter from the charger and wait 1 minute.

When you remove the MiniLink

transmitter from the charger, a green light will fl ash on the transmitter. This indicates it has enough battery power to last at least 3 days and is ready to be connected to the glucose sensor.

After 1 minute, connect the MiniLink

transmitter to the glucose sensor. Do not connect if the site is bleeding or if there is blood on the glucose sensor connection point.

A green light on the MiniLink

transmitter will begin fl ashing when a good connection exists and the glucose sensor is “wet” (note: it may take up to 20 seconds for the MiniLink

transmitter to fl ash).

Optional: Adhesive can be used to tape down and secure your sensor and MiniLink

.

| 51

If the MiniLink

transmitter does not fl ash when connected to the glucose sensor:

• Disconnect the transmitter and place it back in the charger to ensure it is fully charged.

• Remove the transmitter from the charger (when fully charged) and wait 1 minute. After

1 minute, connect the transmitter to the sensor and look for the fl ashing green light.

• If you still do not see the transmitter fl ash, your sensor may simply need more time to wet.

With the transmitter connected to the sensor, wait 1 to 2 hours and then perform the Sensor

Sensor Calibration

The glucose sensor reads the glucose content in the interstitial fl uid under your skin.

Calibration is a process to assist in determining the correct interstitial glucose values. The Veo

™ will need a

minimum of 2 and maximum of 4 BG measurements per day

for calibration.

WARNING

• ALWAYS USE the same blood glucose meter.

• ALWAYS CALIBRATE when your blood glucose is stable.

• DO NOT CALIBRATE if your blood glucose is changing rapidly (e.g., soon after a meal; if an alert is present; or if trend arrows are present).

• REMEMBER TO CALIBRATE the sensor before going to bed so that you do not have to get up during the night (as long as your blood glucose level is stable).

METER BG NOW alert

will sound when the system is ready for you to enter a meter BG value for initial calibration. Clear the alert and follow either of these steps to enter a meter BG value:

> ENTER BG > BG to update Sensor: YES or NO

HOME Screen > MAIN MENU > SENSOR > CALIBRATE > Enter BG

Refer to Chapters 8 & 9 in the Veo

User Guide

54 | GETTING CONTROL

Sensor Calibration (continued)

After you calibrate, it will take 10 to 15 minutes for sensor glucose readings to appear on your insulin pump screen.

1 calibration every 12 hours is the minimum required to continue to receive glucose sensor readings after the fi rst day.

Calibrate 3 to 4 times a day thereafter for optimal glucose sensor accuracy.

If you get a CAL ERROR on your insulin pump, don’t worry. This is a feature of your system intended to ensure good performance.

• To avoid a CAL ERROR make sure you calibrate when your glucose level is least likely to be changing rapidly

• If you get a CAL ERROR, recalibrate if the blood glucose is stable, otherwise wait 15 to 30 minutes before calibrating again

Remember!

The best times to calibrate the glucose sensor are when your glucose levels are least likely to be changing rapidly. Think Before: before meals, before bedtime, before insulin. Also, you do not need to wait until you are alerted to calibrate. You can calibrate at any time when your glucose is stable.
