SmartGuard™ is a new low glucose suspend feature designed to help people who may have a fear of hypoglycaemia or hypoglycaemia unawareness.
It has two different settings so that the pump can automatically ‘Suspend Insulin’ delivery. This suspension of insulin delivery can be set for when the glucose levels are predicted to hit the low limit in the next 30 minutes or can be set to when the glucose levels hit the low limit.
The pump can automatically suspend insulin infusion for a maximum of 2 hours when sensor glucose (SG) levels are predicted to approach a pre-determined threshold and, without intervention, will resume basal insulin delivery to its pre-set rate. All other sensor functions remain operational during insulin suspension.
