Continuous Glucose Monitoring.

Get glucose values continuously.

The Animas® Vibe® Insulin Pump is CGM-enabled, which means you have the option to receive glucose readings every 5 minutes on your Animas® Vibe® Insulin Pump, where the data can be viewed and analysed on the pump’s colour display *.

Giving you the full picture.

The major benefit of having a CGM-enabled insulin pump is that this functionality reveals a complete view of the glucose highs, lows and rates of change over time. This information complements fingerstick testing results and can be used to help guide therapy adjustments.

How it works.

CGM components include a Sensor and a Transmitter. The Sensor is a disposable unit that is placed under the skin (the subcutaneous space) of your abdomen or upper buttocks. The Dexcom G4® PLATINUM Sensor continuously measures the glucose levels in your tissues (the interstitial fluid), not in the blood. The Transmitter is a reusable device that snaps into the Sensor Pod. The Transmitter wirelessly sends the sensor-measured glucose readings every 5 minutes to your Animas® Vibe® Insulin Pump, where the data can be viewed and analysed on the pump’s colour display.*

CGM doesn’t replace fingerstick testing; rather, it works with it. With trending graphs and directional arrows, the idea is to use CGM to determine the direction your glucose is headed and how fast, and then use your fingerstick test to figure out your insulin dose.

About the sensor.

The Dexcom G4® PLATINUM Sensor is a thin wire inserted underneath your skin with the help of an introducer needle. The Sensor is held in place with adhesive, similar to the way your infusion set is attached.

CGM readings, measured by the Sensor, are sent from the Transmitter to the Animas® Vibe® Insulin Pump every 5 minutes.* To track how your glucose is behaving over time. It tells you where your glucose is heading and how fast.

Sensors are disposable. The Dexcom G4® PLATINUM Sensor is approved for up to 7 days of continuous wear.

About the transmitter.

The Dexcom G4® PLATINUM Transmitter is a reusable component, that clips into place inside a plastic sensor pod that’s attached to the adhesive and Sensor. It wirelessly sends your sensor-measured glucose readings to your insulin pump.

About the CGM-enabled pump.

The CGM-enabled Animas® Vibe® Insulin Pump lets you see trends at a glance. The insulin pump displays your glucose trends in full colour right on the screen, so you can quickly see what’s happening.*

It also has customisable alerts that can tell you when you’re going high or going low.

CGM trend & data screens.

The Dexcom® CGM Trend screens provide a complete picture of your glucose status. CGM Trend screens include a graphical display of your glucose readings over a 1-, 3-, 6-, 12-, 24-hour time period, based on your preferred screen view.

Trend arrows.

Trend arrows can be used along with trend graphs to assess which direction your glucose levels are headed and how rapidly they are changing. You should not dose insulin based on trend arrow information.

A single up arrow means your CGM glucose readings are rising 0.11 – 0.17 mmol/L each minute.
