The MiniMed™ 670G system includes the new Guardian™ Sensor (3). The Guardian™ Sensor (3) is Medtronic’s most accurate1 sensor that drives our exclusive SmartGuard™ technology with a smart and reliable design1 and increased comfort.
Your MiniMed™ 670G insulin pump is waterproof (watertight rating IPX8) at a depth of up to 3.6 metres for up to 24 hours, at the time of manufacture, when properly assembled with the reservoir and tubing inserted.
It is important to note that sensor glucose readings are taken from your interstitial fluid (fluid surrounding the cells in your tissue) whereas fingerstick tests are taken directly from your blood. There is a natural lag between glucose levels in the interstitial fluid and glucose levels in the blood. Therefore, it's normal, and should be expected, for your sensor glucose readings and blood glucose readings to be different - but for the most part they should be close.
