  • Patent number: 11109756
    Abstract: Various embodiments relate generally to continuous monitoring of analyte values received from an analyte sensor system. In some example embodiments, there is provided a method that includes receiving sensor information, calculating and storing estimated analyte measurement values based upon the received sensor information. The method also includes determining one or more communication conditions, and instructing a transceiver to advertise to a first display device in accordance with one or more communication variables based upon the one or more communication conditions. The method then transmits the estimated analyte measurement values to the at least first display device. Related systems, methods, and articles of manufacture are also described.

  • Publication number: 20210212132
    Abstract: Systems, devices, and methods are disclosed for wireless communication of analyte data. In this regard, in embodiments, a mobile includes a transceiver configured to transmit and receive wireless signals. The mobile device includes circuitry operatively coupled to the transceiver. The mobile device also includes a non-transitory computer-readable medium operatively coupled to the circuitry and storing instructions that, when executed, cause the mobile device to perform a number of operations. One such operation is to obtain a derivative of a first signal received via a first link. Another such operation is to obtain a derivative of a second signal received via a second link; and. Yet another such operation is to generate a selection for connection to an analyte sensor system, based on a comparison of the derivative of the first signal and the derivative of the second signal.

  • Publication number: 20210142912
    Abstract: Systems and methods disclosed provide ways for Health Care Professionals (HCPs) to be involved in initial patient system set up so that the data received is truly transformative, such that the patient not just understands what all the various numbers mean but also how the data can be used. For example, in one implementation, a CGM device is configured for use by a HCP, and includes a housing and a circuit configured to receive a signal from a transmitter coupled to an indwelling glucose sensor. A calibration module converts the received signal into clinical units. A user interface is provided that is configured to display a measured glucose concentration in the clinical units. The user interface is further configured to receive input data about a patient level, where the input data about the patient level causes the device to operate in a mode appropriate to the patient level.
