Advanced intervention

An introduction to Medtronic's MiniMed 780G

advanced hybrid closed loop insulin delivery system.

Medtronic received a CE

mark for the latest in its

line of insulin pumps,

the MiniMed 780G, in

summer 2020 and from that point

started rolling out in the autumn to

a few European countries including

the Netherlands, Sweden and the UK.

The full title of the latest addition

to the MiniMed range is the 780G

Advanced Hybrid Closed Loop (AHCL)

System, and it is able to do automatic

adjustments every five minutes (more

if you are high) or suspends (or gives

less) insulin if you're low. It means

it's an easier way to stabilise blood

glucose levels.

So, it's a self-adjusting basal

insulin pump system, with a new

auto-correction algorithm. It has

smartphone connectivity and

personalised glucose targets, to

fit around the individual. Carolina

Martin, Therapy Innovation Senior

Director of the Diabetes Group at

Medtronic, in the Europe, Middle

East and Africa (EMEA) region

explains, "The launch of the MiniMed

780G is the latest example of how

Medtronic uses smart algorithms

to improve patient outcomes

and simplify decisions for people

living with diabetes, leveraging the

company's deep data science and

AI capabilities. From smart pump

to smart pen*, thanks to the recent

acquisition of Companion Medical,

our portfolio offers innovative

tech-enabled solutions for people

on different stages in their diabetes

therapy journey."

The MiniMed 780G AHCL system,

approved for use in people aged

seven to 80 years old, anticipates

insulin needs and leverages

the company's most advanced

SmartGuard algorithm to automate

the delivery of both basal insulin

and correction boluses 24/7, every

five minutes as needed. The aim is

to help more people with diabetes

more easily avoid highs and lows,

reach their targets, all with less

effort involved. Clinical studies

have demonstrated that the AHCL

system requires less effort from the

user to manage highs and lows, and

that outcomes improve even more

with a glucose target of 100 mg/dL

(5.5mmol/L).

Forward thinking

The current system utilizes

Medtronic's Guardian 3 sensor with a

Bluetooth transmitter, but Medtronic

is already thinking about the future

of its CGM technology. Medtronic's

diabetes group president, Sean

Salmon recalls, "Medtronic acquired

Dreamed in 2015 which gave us the

algorithm for the MiniMed 780G

pump. We embarked on Project

Zeus, that being a sensor that did not

require calibration - or at the very

least only once a day. It is the same

architecture, the same shape and size

as the current sensor, but with a new

algorithm. Even further down the

line, Medtronic is working on another

new sensor, this one's 'working title'

is Synergy."

If you think it's not long since the

last new pump, you're not wrong.

Its predecessor, the MiniMed 670G,

came out about two-and-a-half years

ago. Medtronic's CEO Geoff Martha

explains, "The plan was to accelerate

diabetes devices pipeline as feedback

on the MiniMed 670G was that it was

harder to use than its predecessor,

the MiniMed 640G. The aim was to

eliminate some of the hassle factor,

while also adding in new features,

such as new connectivity and app.

The MiniMed 780G system

includes Bluetooth connectivity,

allowing users to easily track

pump and CGM information with

customised options for alerts and

Medtronic's MiniMed 780G

Advanced Hybrid Closed Loop

(AHCL) insulin delivery system.

The aim is to help

more people with

diabetes more

easily avoid highs

and lows, reach

their targets,

all with less

effort involved.
