When creating a new plan what must you have selected to create the default plan?
Multiple Daily Injections
Review Questions (during & after) set at "Stayed in target"
Exercise hypoglycaemia risk set a Low
3. What are the three variables to assess exercise hypoglycemia risk?
1. Time below range (TBR) 2. Time in range (TIR) 3. Time above range (TAR)
1. Exercise history 2. Time below range (TBR) 3. Hypoglycaemia awareness & history
1. Number of hypos in last week 2. Time below range (TBR) 3. Time above range (TAR)
4. What is the cut-off time the calculator uses to determine if pre-meal bolus reductions will be suggested?
5. Why are the 670G & 780G pre-meal bolus reductions more aggressive than the other systems, when exercise is within 90 minutes of eating?
The TEMP Target is lower than the other systems
The algorithm works off calculated basal not set basal rates
The IOB from the meal before is deducted from the basal rate, therefore the basal will be at or close to 0%
6. When manual mode is selected from question 3 of 10 how does the calculator make the plan?
It uses the non-APS type 1 DEC pump algorithm for before, during and after plans
It uses the non-APS type 1 DEC pump algorithm for before, during and reverts to Auto-mode for the after plan
It uses the non-APS type 1 DEC pump algorithm for during and after but used the Auto Mode for before plans
7. How often should extra carbs be taken during exercise based on the calculator's suggestions?
8. What is the maximum weight the calculator is capped at to prevent excessive carbohydrate suggestions?
9. How can the calculator plans be adjusted after the first attempt?
Typing over the plan with the new plan
Using the "during" and "after" button for in went high or low
Starting a new plan
10. Using the plan in the picture below. What is the correct action for before, during, and after considering John is eating 100g carbs before, glucose is 5.8 with a stable arrow after 20 minutes of rowing, and ICR is 1u:10g & John is not eating after?
Before: Enter 75g & set Temp Target, During: 15g carbs, Set Temp Target
Before: Enter 75g & set Normal Target, During: 15g carbs, Set Normal Target
Before: Enter 50g & set Normal Target, During: 15g carbs, Set Normal Target
Before: Enter 50g & set Temp Target, During: 15g carbs, Set Normal Target
