Pausing Insulin

When using Omnipod® 5 in Manual Mode, basal insulin delivery is based on your entered basal program and does not change with continuous glucose monitor (CGM) values.

You can choose the amount of time you would like to pause insulin delivery for, with a maximum of 2 hours.

Please note: Insulin will not start automatically at the end of your chosen duration. An alert will remind you to start insulin delivery again.

Watch the video for step-by-step instructions to learn how you can pause insulin delivery.

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.
