A decision support system includes a measurement device configured to continuously measure a physiological parameter of a patient. An insulin delivery device provides insulin to the patient per an initial basal profile and the parameter measurements. A storage device holds historical data of insulin delivery to the patient. A processor determines deviations of the delivery of insulin from the basal profile for one or more time period(s) using the historical data, computes a respective first basal-profile adjustment for each of the one or more time period(s) using the determined deviations, and annunciates the computed first basal-profile adjustment(s). A method of recommending a basal-rate adjustment includes measuring the parameter, infusing the patient with insulin and storing the historical data, determining the deviations from the basal profile, computing the first basal-profile adjustments, and annunciating the computed first basal-profile adjustment(s).

Described is novel system for delivering medication to a patient via an infusion pump. The infusion pump includes mechanical means for delivering medication that are locked and unlocked via a remote control device. The remote control device is configured to be programmed with a desired dosage of medication and to unlock the infusion device to permit the patient, user, or healthcare provider to mechanically deliver only the desired amount of medication by turning a dial. Once the desired dosage of medication has been manually delivered, the remote control locks the infusion device.

The invention is generally directed toward a novel fluid cartridge for medical infusion devices. The disclosed invention describes various protection sleeves and other structures for protecting the luer connection of a lineset that connects to the cartridge, to reduce the stresses placed on the luer connection when the lineset is worn on the body of patient, and to reduce the chances for unintentional disconnection, breakage, or leakage.
