Medtronic MiniMed Quick-Set Infusion Sets for insulin delivery in conjunction with insulin pumps in the MiniMed Paradigm family and MiniMed 530G. There are two different types of infusion kits: MiniMed luer lock connection and the other with the Paradigm connection for the Medtronic Quick-Set Paradigm Infusion Set. These Medtronic infusion kits offer customization with varying tubing lengths and a soft, tapered plastic cannula. Medtronic infusion sets utilize a Safe Needle Disposal System created to prevent accidental needlesticks during disposal.
Medtronic QuickSet Infusion Set utilizes a plastic cannula and a 90-degree insertion angle. It is the best-selling infusion set from Medtronics. The infusion set supports low to average BMI with a 6 mm cannula option and four length options: 18, 23, 32, or 43 inches. There is also a design that supports average to high BMI using a 9 mm cannula with three length options: 23, 32, or 43 inches. The shorter-length options of 18 to 23 inches support wearing the insulin pump close to the infusion site. The more extended length options of 32 to 43 inches support wearing the insulin pump further away from the infusion site.

Follow the instructions of your healthcare professional to manage low glucose. Hypoglycemia may result from using Suspend on low alone to prevent or treat low glucose. If an infusion site becomes irritated or inflamed, remove the infusion kit and place it in a new location.

Product Use Instructions
- If insulin or any liquid gets inside the tubing connector, it can temporarily block the vents that allow the pump to prime the infusion set correctly. This blockage may result in the delivery of too little or too much insulin, resulting in hyperglycemia or hypoglycemia. If this occurs, start over with a new reservoir and infusion set.
- Do not reinsert the introducer needle into the infusion kit. Reinsertion may cause tearing of the soft cannula, which may result in unpredictable medication flow.
- If while infusing insulin your blood glucose level becomes unexplainably high or an occlusion alarm occurs, check for clogs and leaks. If in doubt, change the infusion kit because the soft cannula may be dislodged, crimped, or partially clogged. Should any of these problems arise, make a plan with your healthcare professional for rapidly replacing insulin. Test the blood glucose level to ensure the problem corrects.
- Reuse of the infusion kit may cause damage to the cannula or needle and lead to infection, site irritation, or inaccurate medication delivery.
- Dispose of the transfer guard safely in a sharps container.
- While inserted, never prime the kit or attempt to free a clogged line. You may accidentally inject too much medication.
- Do not use disinfectants, perfumes, or deodorants with the infusion kit as these may affect the integrity of the kit.
- Dispose of the infusion set and introducer needle safely in a sharps container after a single use. Do not clean or re-sterilize.
- Store infusion kits in a cool, dry place. Do not leave the infusion kits in direct sunlight or inside a vehicle.
- Only use reservoir and infusion sets manufactured or distributed by Medtronic Diabetes. The pump has undergone extensive testing to confirm proper operation when used with compatible reservoirs and infusion sets made or distributed by Medtronic Diabetes. There is no guarantee of proper pump operation if used with reservoirs or infusion sets offered by third parties. The manufacturer is not responsible for any injury or malfunctioning of the pump that may occur in association with such use.
- Use aseptic techniques when temporarily disconnecting the kit and consult your healthcare provider on how to compensate for missed medication when disconnected.
- If infusing insulin, carefully monitor your blood glucose levels when disconnected and after reconnecting.
- The reservoir and the transfer guard are sterile, non-pyrogenic, and for single use only.
- Do not clean or re-sterilize. The reuse of the reservoir may lead to insulin degradation, infection, inaccurate medication delivery, or leaks, which may damage the pump.
- Inaccurate medication delivery, infection, or site irritation may result from improper insertion and maintenance of the infusion site.
- If using for the first time, do the first kit-up in your healthcare professional's presence.
- Do not leave air in the infusion kit. Prime completely.
- Replace the infusion set every 48 to 72 hours, according to the Centers for Disease Control's guidance, or per your healthcare professional’s instructions.
- If infusing insulin, do not change the infusion kit just before bedtime unless you can check your blood glucose 1 to 3 hours after insertion.
- Do not use the contents of an open or damaged package.
- Ensure sterility by checking that the sterile paper and tamper-proof seal are not damaged.
- This device is sterile and non-pyrogenic unless the package has been opened or damaged. Do not use the infusion kit if there is damage to the tubing connector needle.
- Do not use the infusion kit for more than three days. When used in an infusion kit, insulin is not suitable for more than three days. If the insulin in the infusion kit is more than three days old, it may increase the risk of set occlusions and cause problems with insulin absorption, which may cause severe hyperglycemia and DKA.
- Clean the insertion site with isopropyl alcohol before insertion.
- Check frequently to make sure the soft cannula remains firmly in place as you may not feel pain if it pulls out. The soft cannula must remain inserted to receive the full amount of medication.
- Release the tubing with caution. A hard pull on the tubing may result in damage to the infusion kit or introducer needle. Ensure that the infusion kit is properly in place when releasing the tubing.
- If the infusion site becomes inflamed, replace the kit and use a new location until the first site heals. Replace the infusion kit if the tape becomes loose or if the soft cannula becomes wholly or partially dislodged from the skin.
- Failure to remove trapped air from the reservoir may result in inaccurate medication delivery.
- Never point a loaded insertion device towards a body part where insertion is not desirable.
- Remove the needle guard before inserting the infusion kit.
