My Pump is the Revel 723, and I use a Medtronic Minimed Transmitter, the MMT 7703NA CGM. They connect to each other with relative ease but I sometime lose signal during the night if I fall asleep on the sensor and the pump cant find the signal.

Dex is not the one usually used with MM as you would need a separate device. I have minilink, part which is part of the MM integrated system.

Does the Medtronic pump require only one kind of attachment or can you use the universal type? I am brand new to this pump use, so I have lots of questions!

Comment by BlessedLife on February 14, 2012 at 6:53am

So, there are various different CGMs to use with the Medtronic Insulin Pumps? I am getting the Revel pump, so which CGM should I use? I was reading about the Dex 7 (I think that is the name). Someone mentioned a new one coming out this year sometime. My doctor does not usually start you on the pump and the CGM at the same time. She wants you to have a few weeks to get used to pumping first. Is there a particular CGM that works better over another? If so, why or why not? I would think that continuous monitoring would be great for us, as diabetics, to have that information.

ELMA was made as a cream and patch sold by AstraZeneca
http://www.astrazeneca.com/Medicines/Neuroscience/Product/EMLA

It is also sold as to dentists as Oraqix - Topical anesthetic

This medicine is available only with your doctor's prescription.

@Hope--Yes, it's prescription--don't know what that RN was thinking!

Comment by Hope on February 13, 2012 at 7:26pm

Is Emla by prescription in the US? The RN at my endo's office said it was OTC, but the pharmacist had no idea what I was even talking about.

Comment by Elizabeth on February 13, 2012 at 2:18pm

EMLA is more or less the brand name for the (generic) lidocaine/prilocaine cream we were given. I agree, those dang CGM needles are scary to look at. I was using them (after insertion) to hang papers from my cubicle wall when I was working in an office. They were every bit as good as thumbtacks.

Comment by Scott E on February 13, 2012 at 1:17pm

EMLA... not to be confused with EULA (End-User License Agreement, that legal mumbo-jumbo you're supposed to agree to before installing software), which is also quite numbing.
