Air Liquide Healthcare UK Tandem t:slim insulin pump with Basal IQ

LIVINGLIVING

KIT THAT'S COMING SOON

F

or people looking to

enjoy more freedom in

managing their diabetes

the innovative t:slim X2

insulin pump offers sleek

design matched with a host of advanced

features you would expect in a modern

device. The t:slim X2 is small and simple

to use, with a large colour touchscreen.

It features a rechargeable battery, USB

connectivity and watertight construction

(IPX7). It is the first CGM-enabled pump

approved to let users make treatment

decisions without pricking their finger*.

It is the only pump capable of remote

feature upgrades, much like an iPhone

or Android, and comes with patientfocussed

24-hour support from Air

Liquide Healthcare's UK-based Customer

Service team.

The t:slim X2 insulin pump can be

used as a standalone insulin pump, or it

can be integrated with the Dexcom G6

continuous glucose monitoring (CGM)

system with the option of two predictive

insulin delivery technologies.

Basal-IQ Technology is a predictive

low glucose suspend feature that links

with Dexcom G6 Mobile CGM to help the

management of hypos with no need for

'fingerstick' blood tests*. Basal-IQ helps

to reduce the frequency and duration of

low-glucose events by predicting glucose

levels 30 minutes ahead and suspending

insulin if they are expected to drop below

4.4 mmol/L, or if a CGM reading falls

below 3.9 mmol/L meaning users can

spend less time worrying about lows and

more time on other things.

Tandem's t:slim X2 pump is about to get an upgrade. Replacing

it's Basal-iQ software with Control-iQ will make it an advanced

Hybrid Closed Loop (AHCL) system.

However, from July of this year

it is possible to update the pump to

Control-IQ Technology, via an optional

software update. Control-IQ is an

advanced hybrid closed-loop technology

which uses an algorithm to automatically

adjust insulin delivery to help prevent both

highs as well as lows. Importantly, this

also increases 'time in range' (TIR) while

still allowing the user to manually bolus for

meals. By using Dexcom CGM values to

predict glucose levels 30 minutes ahead,

the technology is able to adjust insulin

delivery accordingly; including delivery of

automatic correction boluses.

Up-to-date

As with the Basal-IQ update in 2019,

the process for the Control-IQ update

will be via the Tandem Device Updater

(TDU). Users of the pump will be able

to log in at home and, using a unique

identification number, will be able to

initiate the download of the new software

to their pump. A statement by Air Liquide

Healthcare, which distributes the Tandem

t:slim X2 insulin pump in the UK, says, "We

have worked hard to put all the required

training, processes and procedures in

place to ensure that every patient who

requires the Control-IQ update has

received approval from their clinical team

and is able to undertake the appropriate

training which must be completed before

we provide the update to our patients.

We're excited to bring this technology to

the UK and are thrilled with the feedback

we've had from users so far."

Control-IQ isn't a compulsory update;

users of the t:slim X2 who don't wish

to update to the new software can

continue to use their G5 or Basal-IQ G6

enabled pumps as before. The statement

continues, "We would like to thank our

patients and the clinics we work with for

their patience and support during the

launch of Control-IQ."

Air Liquide Healthcare's Customer

Service team is based in South Shields

and is available 24/7: 0800-012-1560.

*If your glucose alerts and CGM

readings do not match your symptoms

and expectations, you should perform a

fingerstick blood test to confirm your blood

glucose level.

"We're excited to bring this technology to the

UK and are thrilled with the feedback we have

had from users so far.
