MiniMed Veo™ insulin pump
The MiniMed™ Veo™ insulin pump is splash-proof, and therefore we continue to label the MiniMed™ Veo™ as water resistant, not waterproof/watertight.
We recommend that MiniMed™ Veo™ insulin pump users do not intentionally submerge their insulin pump in water. To participate in water activities, you can easily disconnect from your insulin pump. While disconnected for water activities, take the necessary precautions to protect your pump from water. You can remove your insulin pump for up to one hour without taking insulin. If you remove your pump for more than one hour, you will have to use another way to take your insulin, such as injections of fast-acting insulin, or reconnecting your pump to take boluses (more information in the temporary disconnect guidelines). When reconnected check your blood glucose levels.
Our watertight rating is IXP7 immersion at depth of 1 meter for 30 minutes.
This means the MiniMed™ Veo™ is protected against a short duration of water immersion of less than 30 minutes to a depth of less than 1 metre.
Should our customers experience water infiltration, we will of course replace the insulin pump according to our normal warranty policy.
MiniMed™ 640G insulin pump
Your MiniMed™ 640G insulin pump, when properly assembled with the reservoir and tubing inserted, is waterproof (watertight rating IPX8) at depth of up to 3.6 metres (12 feet) for up to 24 hours.
Because your pump is waterproof, it is unlikely that water damage will occur if your pump is splashed or submerged. However, you should carefully inspect your pump to ensure there are no cracks before exposing your pump to water, in particular if your pump has been dropped or you suspect your pump is damaged. The pump is not waterproof when it is cracked.
If you believe that water has entered your pump or you observe any other possible pump malfunction, check your blood glucose, and treat blood glucose per your healthcare professional as necessary. Contact Medtronic for further assistance. You should always contact your healthcare professional if you experience excessively high or low blood glucose levels, or if you have any questions about your care.
The MiniLink™, when connected to the sensor and worn, is waterproof and fully immersible. However, we do not recommend immersing your MiniLink™ transmitter in very hot water (like a hot tub). You can wear the transmitter to a depth of 2.4 metres (8 feet) for up to 30 minutes.
If you disconnect from your insulin pump and your transmitter goes out of range for longer than 40 minutes (separated by more than 2 metres or 6 feet), only the last 40 minutes will be re-populated. Reports will have a "data gap" with missing information during this time period.
Guardian™ 2 Link transmitter
The Guardian™ 2 Link, when connected to the sensor and worn, is waterproof and fully immersible, however we do not recommend immersing them in very hot water (like a hot tub). You can wear the transmitter to a depth of 8 feet or 2.4 metres for up to 30 minutes.
