Blood glucose information is transmitted to the third part of the artificial pancreas, which is located in the patient's pocket, via Bluetooth connection and then complex algorithms are analyzed by parameters such as the person's weight or speed of operation & # 39; r patient. insulin, blood sugar circulation in order to be able to adapt the necessary dosage of insulin that is automatically administered by the pump.
