  • Introduction

    In the RUN mode, your pump is delivering insulin to your body every few minutes according to your hourly basal rate. Some functions, like STANDARD BOLUS and TEMPORARY BASAL RATE which you will learn about in a later lesson are only accessible in RUN mode. If the pump is in RUN mode, you can use the Quick Bolus feature on your pump. This lesson focuses on the menus you can access in the RUN mode and how to program a Quick Bolus.

    Let's Run!

  • Run mode at a glance

    In STOP mode, your pump is not delivering insulin. In the RUN mode, your pump is delivering insulin to your body according to your basal rate settings and the boluses you program. It is important to know that some functions are only accessible in the RUN mode. Get to know them. The dark blue screen is the first screen you see when the pump is in RUN mode. Let's see what happens next. If you wish to practice the steps in this next chapter, ensure that the tubing/line is NOT connected to your body.

  • Programming a Quick Bolus: step 1

    For Quick Bolus programming without your diabetes manager, you can activate the Quick Bolus function when the insulin pump is in RUN mode.

    Press and hold the Icon or the Icon key on your pump until you hear a beep sequence and feel a vibration. This activates the Quick Bolus function.

  • Programming a Quick Bolus: step 2

    Press the Icon or the Icon key according to how you started the process, once for each bolus increment until the required insulin bolus amount is reached.

    By default, the increment for the Quick Bolus is 0.5U per key press. Ask your Trainer or healthcare professional to change the increment to 0.1, 0.2, 1.0 or 2.0U per key press if you want. You will learn how to do that by yourself in the Advanced Training Module.

  • Programming a Quick Bolus: step 4

    Five seconds after the last press of either the Icon or the Icon key the pump confirms the total bolus amount with one beep and vibration for each bolus increment programmed.

    After you have become familiar with the Quick Bolus function, you can program a bolus without even looking at the display! Simply count the number of times you press the pump keys while programming, and then count the beep and vibrations as the pump confirms the amount.

  • Programming a Quick Bolus: step 5

    The standard bolus symbol blinks for 5 seconds to indicate the bolus delivery start delay. After the bolus delivery start delay, the pump beeps three times and then begins to deliver the total bolus amount programmed. A countdown of the remaining bolus amount appears on the display.

    You can also use the up and down keys in the opposite order to set a Quick Bolus. So if you turned the function on with Icon, then you could next use Icon to set the bolus amount.

  • Cancelling a Quick Bolus

    You have 3 options to cancel a Quick Bolus:

    1. During the programming of the Quick Bolus
    2. During confirmation and the start delay
    3. During bolus delivery

    Let's look at all of the three options.

  • Cancelling a Quick Bolus during programming

    Press Icon OR Icon, (the key you used to activate the Quick Bolus programming option). This will reset the bolus amount to 0.0 units. You will hear a melody. If no new bolus is programmed, your pump returns to the RUN screen and beeps three times after five seconds. NO bolus is delivered.

  • Now it's your turn! Program a Quick Bolus of 3.5 units on the practice pump.

    If you decide to practice functions on your own or a demonstration pump, make sure the infusion set is disconnected from your body so that there is no chance of accidental insulin delivery. You can do this by disconnecting the tubing from the cannula. Ensure all your settings are put back to where they should be at the end of the practice session. Check that your pump is back in "RUN mode". Practice what you have just learned by pressing the keys on your own demonstration or practice pump.
