Manual Mode 

When the Omnipod® 5 System is in Manual Mode, basal insulin delivery is based on your pre-programmed basal settings and does not change in response to continuous glucose monitor (CGM) values. This mode is most like standard insulin pump therapy since any changes in basal insulin delivery must be done manually. The insulin tab on the Home screen will allow you to access additional details about your Manual Mode basal delivery.

Switching to Manual Mode most often occurs when you're changing Pods or CGM sensors. Switching is also required to pause insulin delivery, edit basal programs, change times, and on some uncommon occasions when the system requires you to do so.

If you have an active CGM connected to the Omnipod 5 App, you’ll still be able to see your CGM value and trend on the Home screen when you're in Manual Mode. Be sure to check the mode indicator on the upper right side of the Home screen to find out what mode you're in.
