Basal Pattern with Multiple Basal Rates
Device: MiniMed® 630G insulin pump (MMT-1715K)
A Basal Pattern is a set of one or more basal rates that cover a 24-hour period. It determines the amount of insulin you receive per hour throughout the day and night. A Basal Pattern allows you to vary your basal rate according to your needs. You can set up to eight basal patterns. To complete a Basal Pattern, basal rates must be set from 12:00A to 12:00A.
Your healthcare professional will determine what rates are right for you.
