Tidepool on the Web Views: Daily View
1. What is the Daily view?
Upon logging into Tidepool on the Web, your default view is the Basics. You can access the Daily view by clicking on the "Daily" link in the header above the view.
This view is intended to allow you to see interactions between insulin delivery, carb ingestion, and blood glucose levels. In the example above, you are seeing data from an Insulet Omnipod, its built in Freestyle meter, and a Dexcom CGM.
2. Navigation Time and Day
There are three ways to get to different dates or times.
1. You can go backward and forward in time by using the date navigation arrows in the header bar.
The single arrows will move the date by a single day, and the arrow with the line will move you to the end of your data.
2. For faster browsing, you can adjust the visible range of data by using the scroll bar along the bottom of the view.
3. If you want to move the time range that is visible a few hours backward or forward, click anywhere in the background of the data field and drag towards the left or right.
Please note: If you have uploaded data, you must click "Refresh" in the lower left hand corner or refresh using your browser to see the new data.
Where you see the Add Notes icon, you can create a note. For example, you can create notes about an event, food you ate, or a goal you set at your last visit with your clinician. The note will appear in the timeline next to the Add Note icon, along with notes you enter from the Blip Notes mobile app. You will also see any notes that have been added by those you have invited to view your data in this field.
3. Adding Notes
There are three ways to add notes.
4. Blood Glucose Readings
On the left, you can see the scale for the blood glucose values. CGM data, if present, will appear as a collection of tiny dots that form a line. For values above 180, the line will be purple. For values between 80 and 180, the line will be green. Below 80 it will be red.
5. Boluses and Carbohydrates
6. Basal Rates
The Basal Rates area shows the scale on the left in Units per hour. It displays an area shaded blue for delivered basals and uses a dotted line to represented scheduled basal rates that were not delivered due to a temporary basal rate. Using your mouse to hover over any of the areas will give you more information.
Here you can see a basal rate that was delivered as scheduled:
Here is a temporary basal rate that is less than the scheduled amount, followed by the text you'll see when you hover:
Finally, a pump suspension can be seen as follows:
7. Aggregate Statistics
Each statistic shows information about the 24-hour period shown in the Daily View fields above. If the stat is gray, it is due to a lack of necessary information to complete the statistic.The Basal: Bolus Ratio widget shows how much insulin is delivered via the scheduled basal rate versus insulin taken as a bolus. In order for this stat to populate, the basal data must be continuous for the twenty-four hour period that is visible.
The Average BG is, well... the average BG for that same 24-hour period. This stat will take into account CGM data so long as 75% of the total number of possible CGM readings in a day are present. Fingersticks are taken into account if there are at least four readings in the twenty-four hour period.
