Closed loop overview

We probed the mind of Dr Mark Evans about currently

available hybrid closed loops systems as well as what's

likely to come our way in the near future to improve

them further.

Dr Mark Evans.

We are the only

country in the

world which

currently has

four commercial

closed-loop

systems available. Dr Mark Evans is a Reader in

Diabetic Medicine in the

University of Cambridge's

Institute of Metabolic

Science and an Honorary Consultant

Physician in Cambridge University

(Addenbrookes) Hospitals. He has a

clinical and academic interest in Type

1 diabetes, technology, structured

education and hypoglycaemia. He

has been in Cambridge for two

decades and refers to the last one

as the 'data download decade.' This

relates not only to data from blood

test meters but pumps too, then

more recently CGM and flash glucose

monitors as well. Data downloading

has been facilitated via software

such as Carelink (Medtronic), Clarity

(Dexcom), LibreView (Abbott) as well

as via 'manufacturer agnostic' apps,

such as mySugr, mylife, GlookoDiasend and Tidepool (which

Evans

describes as 'beautiful').

Now, the game has changed

again with progress in closed loop

systems, where a sensor delivers

data to an algorithm in an insulin

pump, from which the pump can

be automated to deliver insulin if

needed in response to a high glucose

reading (or suspended if it's going

low). Evans says, "We are the only

country in the world which currently

has four commercial closed-loop

systems available - Medtronic's

670G and 780G insulin pumps, Air

Liquide's Tandem t:slim with Control

iQ insulin pump and the CamAPS app.

At this stage, users still need to input

information, hence these systems are

referred to as being 'semi-automated'

or 'hybrid'. They do need accurate

and timely bolusing around meal

times. Maybe in the future they

will not need that input, maybe the

algorithms and 'kit' will take the user

out of the equation. As it stands,

between the clinician and the user,

they have to set targets (Medtronic

excluded), set insulin/carb ratio, and

set active insulin time. Then the user,

on a daily basis, needs to carb count

and manually enter those values

throughout the day. Some systems

require the sensor to be calibrated

up to three times a day, there's also

regular changing of infusion sets,
