What is Novopen Echo Plus? 

Novopen Echo Plus is used in diabetes management, it is a new and innovative way of recording insulin dosing information. The Novopen Echo Plus is a type of smart insulin pen, and it gets its name from its compatibility with smartphones. These connected insulin pens automatically record how much insulin has been administered and the date and time it was administered. Each time you inject insulin, the dosing information can be uploaded to an app on your smartphone, allowing you and your healthcare team to access the data whenever you need to, in person or remotely. 

 

Accurate dosing information which the Novopen Echo Plus provides, can support an improved and more tailored treatment plan.  

 

The Novopen Echo Plus can:

 

  • Record insulin dosing information 
  • Reveal the effects on your glucose levels by showing your insulin dosing data alongside data from your glucose monitoring device all in the one compatible app
  • Connect with diabetes apps such as Freestyle LibreLink, Dexcom, Glooko and mySugr
  • Support personalised treatment decisions based on the accurate data provided by Novopen Echo Plus

 

How to use Novopen Echo Plus

Always read the manufacturer’s guidance for images and descriptions on how to use this device. Follow these 9 steps to preparing and using your connected insulin pen.

 

  • Remove the cartridge holder by pulling off the pen cap and twisting off the cartridge holder. The piston rod may stick out of your pen, If so, push it in until it stops.
  • Slide a new insulin cartridge into the cartridge holder with the threaded end first. Twist the cartridge holder back on.
  • Attach a new needle by tearing off the paper tab and pushing the needle straight onto the pen. Turn until it is on tight. Pull off both needle caps. Save the outer needle cap.
  • ALWAYS test the insulin flow. Select 2 units and press the dose button until the dose counter shows 0. The insulin flow test is complete when you see insulin squirt and there is no longer a gap between the piston rod head and the piston.
  • Select your dose. Pull out the dose button. Make sure the dose counter shows 0 before you start. Turn the dose button to select the dose you need.
  • Inject your dose. Insert the needle. Press the dose button until the dose counter shows 0. Count slowly to 6 before you remove the needle from your skin. Safely remove and throw away the needle. Put the pen cap back on.

How do you transfer data from Novopen Echo Plus to a smartphone?

If you’re using the Freestyle LibreLink app, for example, transferring your insulin data from your connected pen to the app is quite simple. Firstly, in the app you would select ‘Insulin pens’ from the menu, then you would select ‘get started’ and follow the instructions. For Android users, you would simply hold the pen against the back of the phone to transfer the data, but if you use an iPhone you need to press the scan button and then hold your pen against the top of the phone at the front. You should hear an alert and vibration when the data has been successfully transferred. 

 

What is the difference between Novopen Echo Plus and Novopen 6? 

Both types of Novopen work in the same way, their main difference is their dosing capacity. Novepen 6 offers a 60-unit maximum dose in 1-unit dose increments, whereas, Novopen Echo Plus offers a 30-unit maximum dose in 0.5-unit dose increments.

 

Warnings and precautions

Take extra care when injecting yourself or someone else with the Novopen Echo Plus. Do not use it unless you have had proper training from your doctor or nurse. Do not share your pen with anyone else to avoid cross-infection, keep the pen with you at all times and certainly out of sight and reach of children. 

 

Always test the insulin flow before each injection. If you accidentally drop the pen, check it for any damage and keep a spare one with you at all times so that you’re still able to inject your insulin if the other becomes damaged.
