The "T" on the front of Tandem pumps is actually a shortcut to the home screen! It takes you straight back home, eliminating any additional taps before your desired next step.

Manually Resuming Insulin

Here are the steps for manually resuming insulin delivery.

Setting a Temporary Basal Rate

Quick Bolus Button

This button can be programmed to enter either units of insulin or grams of carbohydrate without you looking at the screen, or even taking your pump out of your pocket!
