How to prevent hypo and hyperglycaemic events
MiniMed® 640G provides better control
The most advanced system on the market (as at November 2015), the MiniMed® 640G Insulin Pump System^ with SmartGuard™ features technology that closely mimics the way a healthy pancreas delivers basal insulin to the body – giving your patients better control.
The sensor sits under the skin in the interstitial fluid, where cells get oxygen and nutrients, including glucose. They are easily inserted using an automatic insertion device, like many types of infusion sets, a needle is used to insert the glucose sensor. The needle is then removed, leaving just the tiny flexible electrode under the skin.
The Insulin Pump acts as the receiver of the CGM data sent wirelessly from the sensor by the transmitter.
