P-CAP CONVERSION TO SC1
The conversion of P-Cap infusion sets to SC1 has already started with the launch of Sure-T family in Wave I countries.
A smooth transition was achieved thanks to your effort and great preparation!
In line with our launch plan, next wave is scheduled for January and it will involve most of the CFNs in our portfolio. In order to avoid any supply interruptions as well as any delays, feel free to highlight potential risks or local specific requirements.

GUARDIAN SENSOR 3
TIPS & TRICKS
Calibrations are due:
- After sensor warm-up when Calibrate now is received
- Between 40 minutes and 2 hours
- Within 6 hours on the first day
- Every 12 hours
- When the system detects a calibration is needed for optimal performance, this is called a diagnostic calibration
- More likely to occur day 1, but can also occur on days 2-7 for continued sensor accuracy
- Calibrate 3-4 times spread throughout day including bedtime
- Best time to calibrate is meal and bedtime
- Do not calibrate when sensor or blood glucose values are changing rapidly, e.g. following meals or physical exercise
- User might forget to calibrate when the alert comes too early before the calibration is needed (rather put 10-20 min vs. 1 hour)
“Calibration not accepted” alert
- Wait at least 15 minutes before the next calibration
- User will be directed to change sensor if the 2nd calibration is not accepted
INSERTION TECHNIQUE & TAPING
- Wash your hands with soap and water
- Clean the selected site with an alcohol swab and allow the alcohol to dry. Do NOT use IV prep or the sensor may not work properly.
- Do NOT use skin-preparation solutions prior to insertion e.g. Cavilon™
- Local anesthetic creams (EMLA is ok, check with your local Medtronic team on other products)
- Do NOT insert the sensor through tape or dressing
- Insert the sensor according to the instruction in the IFU
- Ensure that the sensor is securely taped
For best sensor glucose performance avoid
- where clothing may rub or constrict (for example, the beltline)
- where the body naturally bends a great deal, which may cause the sensor to pull out
- sites that are scarred or have hardened tissue or stretch marks
Guardian™ Sensor 3 is approved for the abdominal area and the arm*
- Prefer insertion in the back of the arm*
The sensor insertion site should be at least
- 5 cm (2 inches) from the navel
- 2.5 cm (1 inch) from any manual insulin injection site 2.5 cm (1 inch) from the insulin pump infusion site
Rotate sensor insertion sites
Avoid sites in close proximity to the navel, insulin infusion site or any manual infusion sites
* Assistance may be needed for sensor insertion into the back of the upper arm. Some users found it diﬃcult to insert the sensor into the arm by themselves.
