t:slim X2 Insulin Pump with Control-IQ Technology

Diabetes care made simpler for your patients.

Introducing Control-IQ Technology

  • Adjusts insulin delivery to help prevent highs and lows
  • Automatically delivers a correction bolus*
  • Features Exercise and Sleep Activities
  • Requires zero fingersticks with Dexcom G6 CGM
†Zero fingersticks required when using the t:slim X2 pump with Dexcom G6 CGM integration. If glucose alerts and CGM readings do not match symptoms or expectations, use a blood glucose meter to make diabetes treatment decisions.

Product performance that is patient approved.

In a 6-month, National Institutes of Health-funded trial, study participants completed a technology acceptance survey, and using a 5‑point scale, rated Control-IQ™ technology on the t:slim X2™ insulin pump a 4.8 for desire to continue using the system, 4.7 for ease of use, 4.6 for usefulness, and 4.5 for trust.2

One Pump for Many Patients

The t:slim X2 insulin pump can be used with or without continuous glucose monitoring (CGM). For your patients who do use CGM, you can also prescribe either Control-IQ or Basal-IQ® technology for automated insulin delivery.

Easy to Learn, Easy to Teach

Like all Tandem products, Control-IQ technology is easy to use, learn, and teach. Our predictive technologies integrate with your patients’ existing t:slim X2 insulin pump, so they don’t need to learn an entirely new system.

Online Access to Pump Data

Through the t:connect® HCP web application, you can upload, view, and print patient data from a single user-friendly webpage accessible from any internet-connected computer, anytime, anywhere in the United States.

Responsible Use of Control-IQ Technology

Even with advanced systems such as the t:slim X2 insulin pump with Control-IQ technology, patients are still responsible for actively managing their diabetes. Control-IQ technology does not prevent all high and low blood glucose events. The system is designed to help reduce glucose variability, but it requires that patients accurately input information, such as meals and periods of sleep or exercise. Control-IQ technology will not function as intended unless all system components, including CGM, infusion sets and pump cartridges, are used as instructed. Importantly, the system cannot adjust insulin dosing if the pump is not receiving CGM readings. Since there are situations and emergencies that the system may not be capable of identifying or addressing, patients should always pay attention to their symptoms and treat accordingly.

Responsible Use of Basal-IQ Technology

Systems like the t:slim X2 insulin pump with Basal-IQ technology are not substitutes for the active management of diabetes. There are common scenarios in which automated systems cannot prevent a hypoglycemic event. The Basal-IQ feature relies on current CGM sensor readings to function and will not be able to predict glucose levels and suspend insulin delivery if a patient’s CGM is not functioning properly or his/her pump is unable to receive the CGM signal. It’s recommended your patient always uses the components of the pump system (pump, cartridges, CGM, and infusion sets) according to the applicable instructions for use and checks them regularly to make sure they are functioning as expected. Patients should always pay attention to their symptoms, actively monitor and manage glucose levels, and treat according to your recommendations.

* If glucose values are predicted to be above 180 mg/dL, Control-IQ technology calculates a correction bolus using the Personal Profile settings and a target of 110 mg/dL and delivers 60% of that value. It will do this up to once per hour as needed.

Important Safety Information

Caution: Federal (USA) law restricts the t:slim X2 insulin pump, the t:slim X2 pump with Basal-IQ technology, and Control-IQ technology to sale by or on the order of a physician. The t:slim X2 pump, the t:slim X2 pump with Basal-IQ technology, and Control-IQ technology are intended for single patient use. The t:slim X2 pump, the t:slim X2 pump with Basal-IQ technology, and Control-IQ technology are indicated for use with NovoLog or Humalog U-100 insulin.

t:slim X2 insulin pump: The t:slim X2 insulin pump with integrated technology is an alternate controller enabled (ACE) pump that is intended for the subcutaneous delivery of insulin, at set and variable rates, for the management of diabetes mellitus in people requiring insulin. The pump is able to reliably and securely communicate with compatible, digitally connected devices, including automated insulin dosing software, to receive, execute, and confirm commands from these devices. The pump is indicated for use in individuals 6 years of age and greater. t:slim X2 insulin pump with Basal-IQ technology: When used with a compatible integrated continuous glucose monitor (iCGM), the t:slim X2 insulin pump with Basal-IQ technology can be used to suspend insulin delivery based on CGM sensor readings. The t:slim X2 pump with Basal-IQ technology is indicated for use in individuals 6 years of age and greater. Control-IQ technology: Control-IQ technology is intended for use with a compatible integrated continuous glucose monitor (iCGM, sold separately) and ACE pump to automatically increase, decrease, and suspend delivery of basal insulin based on iCGM readings and predicted glucose values. It can also deliver correction boluses when the glucose value is predicted to exceed a predefined threshold. Control-IQ technology is intended for the management of Type 1 diabetes mellitus in persons 14 years of age and greater. Control-IQ technology is intended for single patient use. Control-IQ technology is indicated for use with NovoLog or Humalog U-100 insulin.

WARNING: Control-IQ technology should not be used by anyone under the age of six years old. It should also not be used in patients who require less than 10 units of insulin per day or who weigh less than 55 pounds.

 
Control-IQ technology and the t:slim X2 pump with Basal-IQ technology are not indicated for use in pregnant women, people on dialysis, or critically ill patients. Users of the t:slim X2 pump, the t:slim X2 pump with Basal-IQ technology, and Control-IQ technology must: be able and willing to use the insulin pump, CGM, and all other system components in accordance with their respective instructions for use; test blood glucose levels as recommended by their healthcare provider; demonstrate adequate carb-counting skills; maintain sufficient diabetes self-care skills; see healthcare provider(s) regularly; and have adequate vision and/or hearing to recognize all functions of the pump, including alerts, alarms, and reminders. The t:slim X2 pump, transmitter, and sensor must be removed before MRI, CT, or diathermy treatment. For additional important safety information, visit www.tandemdiabetes.com/safetyinfo.
