LIVING

Being interoperable, the Dana

RS can work with industry partners

to give users a choice when it

comes to turning their insulin pump

into a hybrid closed loop system.

Currently, the hybrid closed loop

system CamAPS FX from CamDiab

Ltd is the first CE marked and

licensed system to connect with the

Dana RS and enables hybrid closed

loop therapy. CamAPS FX runs as

an app on an Android phone, and

with a compatible CGM (currently

the Dexcom G6). These work

together to make automated insulin

delivery decisions based on blood

glucose data.

"We were very pleased to learn

of the compatibility of the Dana RS

pump with the CamAPS algorithm

as this has been clinically tested

for more than 15 years and has the

widest application; in children from

one-year-old to adults in their

80s. It is even licensed for use in

pregnancy," confirms Hughes.

Dana i

This has all the features of the Dana

RS (such as interoperability), and

then some! It uses a standard AAA

alkaline battery and has Bluetooth

version 5.0 for even greater range

and stability of data transmission.

It features a more readable screen

and 24-hourly insulin-to-carb ratios

as well as 24-hourly Correction

Factors (there is four of each in

the Dana RS). The Dana i can be

operated in one of three ways: by its

keypad; by the Any Dana smartphone

app; by HCL algorithms - such as

CamAPS. It is also future-proofed

in that it's software can be updated

via an internet download using the

AnyDana App.

The Dana pump range comes with

a choice of infusion sets. Most use

Teflon and come with 6mm or 9mm

cannulas. The Soft Release O infusion

sets spin 360° which can reduce site

irritation. They have blue tubing,

which makes air bubbles easier to

spot. There's also an Easy Release set

with a unique 4.5mm metal cannula,

which is ideal for those with low

body fat, or who do sports, and is

ideal for very young children.

'appy days

The AnyDana app for smartphones

was the first of its kind when

launched in 2018 with the Dana RS

and continues with the Dana i. It

means that users only have to touch

the pump for cartridge changes. and

for no other reason. All other factors

can be amended in the app including

bolus deliveries. It is the only pump

that is currently licensed to do this

CamAPS was launched just

before the first lockdown in March

2019. Roman Hovorka, a professor

of mathematics at Cambridge

University Hospital, is the creator of

this app and reports that users are

coming on thick and fast, though

some people are facing issues with

funding and availability. It has been

licensed for use in pregnancy and for

children under the age of six. Both

can be seen as badges of honour ¬-

that this is a very trusted system.

Both the Dana RS, which is

slightly smaller and lighter than the

Dana i, are fully compatible with

CamAPS. Both have a small screen

and just four buttons needed to

operate them. The Dana RS can

communicate with Android-based

artificial pancreas systems, whereas

the Dana i currently can't, but that

may change. Both also use the same

consumables, both are waterproof

and both remain available.

As well as the choice of Dana

pumps, Advanced Therapeutics

also has a product called MedAngel

ONE which combines a medical

grade wireless thermometer with

an intuitive app to help protect your

medications. The thermometer

goes in with your insulin (or other

temperature-sensitive medications)

while the app on your smartphone

will alert you if your meds are getting

too hot or too cold.

Due to the success of the Dana

range Advanced Therapeutics (UK)

Ltd is growing rapidly and will be

soon moving to recently purchased

larger premises to accommodate

this. Says Hughes, "This move to

our own premises is a landmark

development for our company, as it

will enable us to take on more staff to

support the growth of our business

and our customers and to hold the

levels of stock we need to fuel our

future growth."
