How to turn off/shut down Medtronic Minimed 640G
Medtronic does not provide instructions how to turn off the Minimed 640G. Even when you take out the battery there is an internal battery that continues to cause the pump to beep.
The way to turn it off is to take out the battery, then press and hold the "back" button for a while until the red led light just beneath the back button stops flashing. Once it's shut down, you can turn it back on by pressing and holding the graph button (the button on the top right, just beneath the screen that has the little power symbol next to it). If the Medtronic logo appears, you have successfully restarted the pump.
Once it turns back on, you will have to put in the date and time and rewind the pump. You will also have to reconnect external devices such as the meter.
This helped me deal with an issue where the batteries kept draining.

What do they mean by low heart rate?
The normal heart rate is really an average heart rate, around 80 beats per minute. Many things can make it go faster or slower, including activity, medication, drugs, exposure to insectisides or mushrooms and others. A slow heart rate is called bradycardia, usually around 60 beats per minute. Sometimes the electrical nodes in the heart which help to make the heart start a new beat quit or work incorectly. In these cases medication or a pacemaker are required. I hope this answers your question.
