Professional CGM for better insights into patient glucose control

 

Professional CGM Professional CGM technology helps clinicians gain more complete insights into their patients' glycemic profiles. When used to make therapy and lifestyle recommendations, Professional CGM data can lead to improved glucose control. Professional CGM works as follows:

 

  • Devices are owned by healthcare professionals and are used for "blinded" or "masked" collection of glucose data.
  • Patients wear the device for up to 6-days and return it to the office for download.
  • Patients do not receive glucose alerts and only see the CGM data after it's been analyzed by the healthcare professional.1

Meter readings suggest good glucose control

CGM Reveals Insights Beyond BGs and A1C
When measurements are taken infrequently, one can miss vital data points.

CGM takes readings every 5 minutes 24 hours a day over several consecutive days, providing a more accurate understanding of blood glucose readings than infrequent BG meter readings.

What are the components for use?

Sensor
Sensor
The sensor is inserted into interstital fluid and continuously generates an electrical current proportional to the glucose concentration.

iPro2 Recorder
iPro2 Recorder
Digitally stores the average sensor current every 5 minutes.

After the study is complete, data from iPro2 is uploaded through Dock to PC with Internet connection to CareLink iPro.

CareLink iPro Reports
CareLink iPro Reports
CareLink iPro applies a retrospective algorithm to calibrate sensor current using BG meter readings to generate reports.

iPro2 is labeled for all patients with diabetes

"The iPro2 digital recorder is intended to continuously record interstitial glucose levels in persons with diabetes mellitus.

The information may allow identification of patterns of glucose-level excursions above and below a desired range, facilitating therapy adjustments, which may minimize these excursions."*
