Basal Program Creation

In the Omnipod® 5 System, creating new basal programs will only impact Manual Mode insulin delivery.

Having more than one basal program can be helpful when insulin needs vary when using Manual Mode. For example, weekdays versus weekends.

To create a new basal program, the system must be in Manual Mode. After creating new basal programs, double check that the graph and individual segment values are correct. After saving, you can activate the newly created basal programs right away or save for later. Remember to check the Insulin tab on the Home screen to verify which basal program is active, either Manual Mode or Automated Mode.

Watch the video for step-by-step instructions to learn how you can create new basal programs.

Training is essential and must be completed before using the Omnipod 5 System. As part of this process, you will need to meet with your healthcare provider and visit to complete setup and schedule your required training.
