MINIMED INFUSION SETS - COMPARISON CHART

CHOOSING AN INFUSION SET - CONSIDERATIONS

ANGLE OF INSERTION

Infusion sets are designed to be inserted at a 90° or at 20-45° angles to the surface of the skin. The MiniMed™ Mio™ and MiniMed™ Quick-set™ are 90° insertion sets – beneficial for patients:

  • With poor dexterity
  • Who prefer arm or hard-to-reach infusion sites
  • With needlephobia
  • Children and others learning to insert their own sets

Angled insertion infusion sets - MiniMed™ Mio™ 30 and MiniMed™ Silhouette™ - make a meaningful difference for diabetes patients:

  • That are lean or muscular
  • Who experience lipohypertrophy
  • With a higher risk of the set being pulled out - children and those involved in sport. Note: the angle of insertion and the length of the cannula (longer than 90° cannulae) may reduce the risk of a cannula being dislodged
  • Who are pregnant, near the end of the second trimester or in the third trimester – stages characterised by taut abdominal tissue
  • Experiencing site infections. The clear window in the adhesive tape of an angled set allows patients to see any redness developing around the cannula - potentially reducing the risk of a site infection

CANNULA

Cannula length – long or short?
Most patients benefit from shorter length cannulae (6 mm for 90° sets & 13 mm for 30-45° angled infusion sets).
A longer cannula may be necessary for:

  • Patients with a high BMI
  • Patients requiring large boluses (≥25 units) for meals
  • Patients requiring high basal rates (≥2.5 units per hour) to ensure that the insulin is
  • delivered successfully into the subcutaneous tissue

Steel needle or plastic soft cannula?
MiniMed™ Sure-T™ is a steel needle infusion set, benefitting patients who:

  • Experience reactions to plastic cannulae
  • Are fit and active
  • Have a history of bent cannulae
  • Are pregnant (up to the second trimester)

As they do not insert a cannula, steel needles are relatively small. Insertion is similar to taking an injection. For that reason, steel needle sets can benefit patients who prefer smaller needles. Steel needle infusion sets are easy to teach patients to use and for patients to insert.
