Clearing alerts on the MiniMed® 640G System^  22nd July 2015

If your patients are using the MiniMed® 640G System^, they may receive an alert when performing a bolus, related to either having dangerously low blood glucose, dangerously high blood glucose or are trying to deliver a large bolus (as shown in the pictures). It is important that they clear these alerts immediately so that they can correctly deliver the bolus. It is also important to never use data older than 12 minutes to determine a bolus amount.

Medtronic MiniMed® Sure-T® infusion sets Recall for Product Correction  23rd June 2015

Potential for interruption of insulin delivery and/or infection due to needle breaking during use
Medtronic, after consultation with the TGA (TGA Ref# RC-2015-RN-00506-1), is initiating a voluntary Recall for Product Correction for the above mentioned devices. As part of Medtronic’s product quality monitoring process, we identified that certain MiniMed® Sure-T® infusion sets* had a slight increase of reported cases where the steel needle broke during use. In a small number of these reported cases, the needle break led to hospitalization for the management of glucose levels and/or treatment for removal of the needle. Since then, an improvement in the needle manufacturing was implemented, which has reduced the number of reported cases of needle breaks.
