Medtronic have informed us that there is a potential issue relating to the battery cap on some Medtronic insulin pumps (including 640, 670 and 780 series pumps).
If the metal contact becomes loose or falls off from the battery cap, it can result in an incomplete battery connection, leading to no power source to the pump. When the pump detects no power source, an “insert battery” alarm will occur, and insulin delivery will immediately stop. After 10 minutes, the alarm sound may increase to a siren, and the pump will turn off.
What do you need to do?
