Your Kid’s Glucose Levels Remotely Through The Night

Medtronic Launches First-Of-Its-Kind mySentry™ Remote Glucose Monitor

mySentry Allows Caregivers to See Real-Time Insulin Pump Information and Glucose Trends from Another Room

MINNEAPOLIS – January 4, 2012 – Today, Medtronic, Inc. (NYSE:MDT) announced U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval and U.S. market launch of the first-of-its-kind mySentry™ Remote Glucose Monitor, which allows a parent or caregiver to monitor from another room a patient’s MiniMed Paradigm® REAL-Time Revel™ System. The remote glucose monitor also marks the launch of a new category of Connected Care solutions that will provide people with diabetes and their caregivers convenient options to access their diabetes management information.

mySentry allows caregivers to see real-time insulin pump status and glucose trends, as well as hear alerts and alarms, at their bedside while an adult or child with diabetes sleeps in his or her own room. This could be especially useful for parents, who could be alerted through a predictive alarm in the middle of the night if their child’s glucose levels are falling, allowing them to take action to prevent an episode of low blood sugar (hypoglycemia). For a caregiver of someone with type 1 diabetes, nighttime hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) represents one of their greatest concerns.

“Many of the parents of our patients wake up a couple of times every night to check their child’s blood sugar level and even that may not be enough to prevent episodes of severe hypoglycemia,” said William Tamborlane, M.D., Chief of Pediatric Endocrinology and Deputy Director of the Yale Center for Clinical Investigation. “Advances in continuous glucose monitoring, including remote monitoring like mySentry, have given parents an added level of protection from dangerous nighttime hypoglycemia occurring in their sleeping child, as well as a means to improve their quality of life.”

An estimated 75 percent of all episodes of severe hypoglycemia in children occur at night1. By alerting a parent or caregiver to an alarm, mySentry may provide added nighttime protection.

“We’re excited to bring this new innovation to market that could give caregivers greater peace of mind. The mySentry Remote Glucose Monitor is the first step toward our vision to develop an entire category of Connected Care products that help people more proactively manage their diabetes by making it easier and more convenient to access the wealth of information captured by our integrated insulin pump and continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) system,” said Greg Meehan, Vice President and General Manager of the Continuous Glucose Monitoring business at Medtronic.

mySentry is used in conjunction with the MiniMed Paradigm® REAL-Time Revel™ System, an insulin pump with built-in continuous glucose monitoring. mySentry can be placed in the bedroom or in any room throughout the house so all important information is just a glance away. mySentry provides flexibility and a wide range of uses including displaying all of the alerts and alarms available on the Paradigm Revel insulin pump: predictive alerts, continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) graph, insulin pump battery life, amount of insulin remaining, and time until the next glucose sensor calibration.

Medtronic is committed to working with health insurance providers to ensure access to and reimbursement for the product. More information is available at http://www.medtronicdiabetes.com/mysentry.

Welcome to the future of nighttime glucose monitoring

You would do anything to avoid dangerous nighttime lows, including waking up 2 to 3 times a night to do fingerstick tests. This can be exhausting, and only provides a brief snapshot of glucose levels, leaving most of the night filled with uncertainty.

Finally, help has arrived. Introducing mySentry, the first remote glucose monitor. mySentry provides valuable nighttime glucose information for a wide range of insulin pump and Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) users—and their loved ones. It can be especially helpful for monitoring children overnight, when they are most vulnerable. With up-to-the-minute sensor glucose values and alerts displayed remotely, you can now feel more confident managing your child’s diabetes overnight.

Remote Monitoring in Real Time

Placed conveniently at your bedside, mySentry displays your child’s important insulin pump and glucose information throughout the night, making it available just a glance away.

The mySentry system consists of a Monitor with a color screen, a power supply, and an Outpost that transmits information from your child’s Medtronic MiniMed Paradigm® REAL-Time Revel™ System to the mySentry Monitor.

The Outpost enables you to keep watch from up to 50 feet away or greater. This means that your child can be sleeping in one room while you are in another room, observing their insulin pump and sensor information in real-time without having to get up and check the pump itself.

Added Protection From Lows

mySentry receives and sounds the same alerts that your child gets on his or her Minimed Paradigm® REAL-Time Revel™ System so that you can take action sooner to avoid dangerous lows or highs. These include predictive alerts, which can warn you up to 30 minutes in advance of low or high events, and threshold alerts that tell you when your child’s preset low or high glucose levels have been reached.

Alarms and alerts sound loudly to awaken deep sleepers, and the volume can be adjusted to your desired level. For added convenience, mySentry also features a snooze button that provides you the option of temporarily silencing alarms.

Easy-to-Use Design

Intuitive buttons and a touch-sensitive display allow you to easily navigate through the various settings and status screens.

Adjustable brightness allows you to dim the monitor appropriately for nighttime monitoring, and the built-in nightlight can help you find your way in the dark.

For those occasions when you don’t want to display sensitive glucose information, you can turn on a privacy screen to hide information from broader view while still enabling you to receive important alerts.

Seamless System Integration

mySentry™ easily integrates with the Paradigm Revel System, continuously relaying insulin pump and CGM information. Find out more about the Paradigm Revel System.
