  • Publication number: 20190035493
    Abstract: Methods, devices, and systems are provided that determine analyte trends according to different methods depending on whether a change-resistant state is active or not active. The method used when the change-resistant state is activated provides for different requirements for a resulting analyte trend to transition between states (e.g., level to non-level). Furthermore, in some aspects, methods, devices, and systems of selecting or modifying a response rate of an analyte monitoring device for an individual user are provided. User instructions for selecting or modifying a response rate of the device or system is received externally via a user interface or communication channel. The response rate of the analyte monitoring device or system is then selected or modified to the first response rate, and the device or system operated with the first response rate.

  • Patent number: RE47315
    Abstract: Embodiments described herein relate to an analyte monitoring device having a user interface with a display and a plurality of actuators. The display is configured to render a plurality of display screens, including a home screen and an alert screen. The home screen is divided into a plurality of simultaneously displayed panels, with a first panel displays a rate of change of continuously monitored analyte levels in interstitial fluid, a second panel simultaneously displays a current analyte level and an analyte trend indicator, and a third panel displays status information of a plurality of components of the device. When an alarm condition is detected, the display renders the alert screen in place of the home screen, the alert screen displaying information corresponding to the detected alarm condition. Furthermore, the actuators are configured to affect further output of the analyte monitoring device corresponding to the detected condition.
