Details
No, the G4
Platinum
system is a
stand-alone
CGM, but it’s
compatible
with the
Animas Vibe
and Tandem
T-slim G4.
Works with
Dexcom Studio
data management
software for
Windows and
Dexcom Clarity
Web-based data
management
software for
Windows and Macs.
Built-in hypoglycemia safety alarm alerts user when glucose hits
55 mg/dl and is always on. Customizable alerts with a number of
different tones tell user when glucose falls below or rises above
user-selected limits and when glucose is rising or falling rapidly.
Sensor with attached transmitter is water resistant for up to 8 feet
deep for 24 hours, so you can wear it while bathing and swimming.
Works with the Dexcom Share app, which sends real-time glucose
values to the cloud, allowing up to five caregivers using Dexcom’s
Follow app to view real-time glucose readings on Apple or select
Android devices. Approved for use by adults and children 2 and over.

No, the G5
Mobile is a
stand-alone
CGM.
Automatically sends
data to the Dexcom
Clarity Web-based
data management
software.
Users can get CGM data and alerts directly on their smart device—
only Apple products (including the Apple Watch) at the moment,
though Android compatibility is in the works. A receiver is available,
but is not necessary. No finger-stick confirmation required when
making treatment decisions. Built-in hypoglycemia safety alarm
alerts user when glucose hits 55 mg/dl and is always on.
Customizable alerts with a number of different tones tell user when
glucose falls below or rises above user-selected set limits and when
glucose is rising or falling rapidly. Sensor with attached transmitter is
water resistant for up to 8 feet deep for 24 hours, so you can wear it
while bathing and swimming. The receiver should not get wet. Using
Dexcom’s Follow app, up to five caregivers can view real-time glucose
readings on Apple or select Android devices. Approved for use by
adults and children 2 and over.
When calibrating,
manually enter a
glucose reading from
any meter.

Yes, the Vibe
functions as
both an insulin
pump and a
CGM, using
Dexcom G4
Platinum
technology.
Works with Diasend
Web-based data
management
software.
Combines a Dexcom sensor and transmitter with the Animas Vibe
insulin pump. (More on its pump functions on p. 82.) Built-in
hypoglycemia safety alarm alerts user when glucose hits
55 mg/dl and is always on. Customizable alerts with a number of
different tones tell user when glucose falls below or rises above
user-selected limits and when glucose is rising or falling rapidly.
Sensor with attached transmitter is water resistant for up to
8 feet deep for 24 hours, so you can wear it while bathing and
swimming. Pump is waterproof for up to 12 feet deep for
24 hours. Approved for use by adults and children 2 and over.
Calibrate
every
12 hours.
Blood glucose
levels must
be between
40 and
400 mg/dl to
calibrate.
The Contour Next
Link meter wirelessly
communicates with
the system, so no
manual entry is
needed for calibration
or insulin dosing. You
can also manually
enter a glucose
reading from any
meter.

Yes, the
MiniMed 530G
functions as
both an insulin
pump and
a CGM.
Works with CareLink
Personal data
management
software.
Compatible with
Windows and Mac
operating systems.
Integrated diabetes management system with pump and CGM
capabilities. (More on its pump functions on p. 82.) SmartGuard
technology automatically stops insulin delivery for up to two
hours when glucose values reach a user-selected low threshold
and there is no response to the alarm. Alerts warn user up to 30
minutes before glucose hits user-selected upper or lower limit,
when glucose is rising or falling rapidly, and when glucose reaches
a preset high and low limit. Sensor with attached transmitter is
waterproof for up to 8 feet deep for 30 minutes, so you can wear
it while bathing and swimming. Pump is not watertight; remove
before bathing and swimming. Approved for use by adults and
children 16 and over.
It takes
2 hours to
be ready
after
inserting
sensor.
Calibrate
every 12
hours. Blood
glucose levels
must be
between
40 and
400 mg/dl
to calibrate.
The Contour Next Link 6 days
2.4 meter wirelessly
communicates with the
system, so no manual
entry is needed for
calibration, insulin
