  • Publication number: 20210268180
    Abstract: An insertion set system includes a base configured to be secured to a patient, and a flexible tubing on the base. The flexible tubing has a distal end portion forming a cannula to be inserted into the patient. An inserter having a needle is received by the base. The needle has a channel in which the distal end portion of the flexible tubing is received. The needle is able to slide relative to the flexible tubing, to selectively withdraw the needle off of the distal end portion of the flexible tubing. The base may include a passage for fluid flow arranged transverse to the axial dimension of the distal end portion of the flexible tubing.

  • Publication number: 20210128834
    Abstract: Infusion systems, infusion devices, and related operating methods are provided. An exemplary method of operating an infusion device to deliver fluid to a body of a user involves obtaining measurement values for a physiological condition influenced by the fluid, autonomously operating the infusion device to deliver the fluid based at least in part on the measurement values, and detecting a nonactionable condition based on the measurement values. In response to detecting the nonactionable condition, delivery of the fluid is limited while maintaining autonomous operation of the infusion device. In one exemplary embodiment, the nonactionable condition is a rescue condition indicative of the user having consumed fast-acting carbohydrates, and thus insulin delivery may be automatically limited in response to detecting the rescue carbohydrate consumption.

    Abstract: Medical devices and related augmented reality systems and methods are provided. A method of operating an infusion device involves analyzing one or more images captured by an imaging device to identify image content indicative of an activity capable of influencing the physiological condition of the patient and in response to identifying the activity based at least in part on the one or more images, automatically adjusting delivery of the fluid to the patient based at least in part on the activity. An expected nutritional characteristic for a meal is determined based at least in part on the image content, and a delivery adjustment for delivering the fluid is determined based on the expected nutritional characteristic. A graphical indication of the delivery adjustment may also be provided using augmented reality.

  • Publication number: 20210038812
    Abstract: Infusion systems, infusion devices, and related operating methods are provided. An exemplary method of operating an infusion device involves obtaining one or more measurement values of a physiological condition in the body of a user during an initial monitoring period and determining a fasting reference value for a metric based on the one or more measurement values. After the initial monitoring period, the method continues by obtaining an updated measurement value during a fasting period, determining a current value for the metric based at least in part on the updated measurement value, and generating a notification in response to a deviation between the current value and the fasting reference value exceeding a threshold indicative of insertion site loss or other loss of effectiveness.
