You can set the low reservoir warnings to whatever you want. I have mine set at 15 units. So it will alarm when it reached 15 units and then again when it reaches half that. I think the default is 50 units. So you would get one at 50 left and then again at 25 (1/2).

Mine warns me when I get to 35 units. I have never let it run competely empty, but I assume that you would eventually gen a "Non-Delivery" warning.
Comment by Chris G on March 19, 2010 at 10:11am
Yeah, I agree. The 722 doesn't complain as much as I think it should when the reservoir is empty.

On the 722, you can set the number of units for the low reservoir warning.

This is actually a good point for the pump - it helps when you catch those mistakes.

I thought once you set a bolus, no matter what kind, you cannot cancel it. I was told that by my nurse practitioner. I guess I am wrong.. i was told suspend only stops it for a few minutes but it will keep going after you take it off of suspend.
Comment by KiwiRox on March 18, 2010 at 6:57pm
When you tell the pump to give you a square bolus, it gives you the set amount over a certain amount of time. So if you told it 5 units over 5 hours, it would give you 1 unit per hour. If you stopped it at the end of hour 2 it would have given you 2 units. At the end of 2 1/2 hours it would have delivered 2.5 units. Once you stop it, by doing the quick suspend and then turning it back on, the undelivered bolus never gets delivered. So your entry of 8.9 for one hour looks like you stopped it immediately. You will need to re-enter a bolus for the food that you did eat.

Hope this helps.
Comment by christie on March 18, 2010 at 6:34pm
I just did a square bolus and then realized that I did not eat all of the carbs that I bolsed for so I quickly suspended my pump. I just went to review my bolus history and it said Type:square
user entry 8.9
stopped at 0.1
Duration: 1:00
Does this mean that when I unsuspended the pump that it did not continue my bolus? I have never had this happen I am new to the square/dual wave bolus.

I just recently got on a pump. I have a MM Paradigm. I was just wondering if anyone had any suggestion about it.. thanks
Comment by Mark on March 17, 2010 at 4:32pm
Erika, that's great about your new pump, thanks for the links. As far as insurance goes my endo handled all that. The only hard time I had was when my insurance put a hold on the CGM by Metronic, no doubt because they didn't believe that CGM was worth the cost. Metronic would not send a $6000 pump unless you were pre-approved.
Comment by Geoffrey Steinman on March 17, 2010 at 1:41pm
David, i'd have to look in to it, but i think the insurance may cover part of my upgrade cost (at the same rate they cover sensors, new pumps, sites, etc, at 80%)
I'm somewhat surprised with this announcement, my pump rep usually sends me the press releases about a day before they go public...
