T

he MiniMed™

670G system with

SmartGuard™ Auto

Mode is the world's

first self-adjusting

insulin pump system. MiniMed 670G

is a hybrid closed loop (HCL) insulin

pump (it is called 'Hybrid' as some user

interaction is required for carbohydrate

entry and corrections). To put it simply,

the new MiniMed 670G system when in

SmartGuard Auto Mode automatically

adjusts basal insulin every 5 minutes to

meet the person individual needs. This

helps reduce highs and lows and keep

the person within a healthy glucose

range.

Medtronic's MiniMed 640G pump was

launched in Europe nearly four years ago,

having several hundred thousand users

across Europe at present. Since then

the company's MiniMed 670G pump

has been launched in the USA. Andrew

Nicholson, EMEA Marketing Manager

for Medtronic says, "The launch of the

MiniMed 670G in the US has resulted

in more than 100,000 people using the

system to date. We have learnt so much

from them and we are aware that this is

a mindset shift for both people and their

physicians. We are now very proud to

have launched the MiniMed 670G system

along with our new Guardian Sensor 3

in Europe. Early feedback has been very

positive, and we are seeing excellent

results already."
