What You Should Know:

Medtronic announced the U.S. launch of Medtronic Extended infusion set, the first and only infusion set labeled for up to 7-day wear. An infusion set is tubing that delivers insulin from an insulin pump to the body and typically requires a set change every two to three days.

– The Medtronic Extended infusion set uses advanced materials that help reduce insulin preservative loss and maintain insulin flow and stability to double the wear time of an infusion set. The innovative design of the Medtronic Extended infusion set leverages proprietary technology, including a new tubing connector that improves the physical and chemical stability of insulin, the reliability of infusion site performance, and reduces the risk of infusion set occlusion.

– The adhesive patch also has an adhesive layer that helps extend wear time and provides comfort and durability for up to 7 days. In addition to the new infusion set, the Medtronic Extended reservoir is the only infusion set reservoir tested and cleared to help keep insulin stable and safe to use for up to 7 days.
