IMPORTANT

Info  It is important that you are able to address an Insulin flow blocked alarm.

This alarm means that insulin is not able to get through the tubing or cannula. If this alarm occurs, check to see if your infusion set has become dislodged or if your tubing is kinked.

  • If you don’t detect an issue and are unable to change your reservoir and infusion set right away, you might choose to select Resume Basal. If an Insulin flow blocked alarm occurs again, follow the steps on the screen. Select Rewind and change your reservoir and infusion set.
  • If you detect an issue or if your reservoir has run out of insulin, follow the steps on the screen. Select Rewind to change your reservoir and infusion set
