The Dexcom G4 PLATINUM Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) System

The Dexcom G4 PLATINUM Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) System continuously measures and displays glucose values. In addition to reporting glucose values every five minutes, the system reports trending information in real-time for up to seven days.

The G4 PLATINUM CGM System includes three components: a sensor, transmitter and receiver. The glucose sensor is a small wire that is inserted under the skin of the abdomen and measures glucose values in the fluid between the body’s cells (interstitial fluid). The glucose values are sent through the transmitter to the hand-held receiver, where they are displayed for the user. The sensor is less than 1/2 inch thick with sleek and small receiver. It weighs 2.4 ounces- and is the lightest CGM around with high or low alerts never been more ear-pleasing with custom tones and melodies.

The Dexcom G4 PLATINUM CGM System aids in the detection of episodes of high blood glucose (hyperglycemia) and low blood glucose (hypoglycemia), to help with both short-term and long-term therapy adjustments, which may minimize these highs and lows in blood glucose.
