  • Publication number: 20220208329
    Abstract: Systems, devices, and techniques are disclosed for differentiating a therapeutic dose and a priming event to properly administer medication to patients. In one example aspect, a method for differentiating therapeutic doses and priming events in administering a medication to a patient includes determining a time window for monitoring dispensing of the medication by an injection pen device. Multiple dispense events each releasing an amount of the medication occur in the time window. The method also includes classifying dispense events prior to a last dispense event in the time window as priming events or therapeutic doses and designating the last dispense event in the time window as a therapeutic dose for facilitating calculation and tracking of a dosage amount for the patient.

  • Publication number: 20220172816
    Abstract: Disclosed are systems and techniques providing alternatives to traditional insulin dose calculators that involve little to no input from a patient user of a medicine injection device, including a fixed-dose titration therapy dose calculator and a streamlined dose calculator. In some aspects, a system for administering a medicine using a fixed-dose titration protocol includes an injection pen device in wireless communication with a mobile communication device comprising a software application to determine a recommended one or more fixed-dose sizes of the insulin based on (i) health data, including first glucose level of a patient user of the injection pen device that is measured prior to consumption of a meal and a second glucose level of the patient user that is measured within a predefined time period after consumption of the meal, and (ii) meal data, including a meal type of the meal and a meal size of the meal.

  • Publication number: 20220125355
    Abstract: Systems and methods for processing sensor analyte data are disclosed, including initiating calibration, updating calibration, evaluating clinical acceptability of reference and sensor analyte data, and evaluating the quality of sensor calibration. The sensor can be calibrated using a calibration set of one or more matched sensor and reference analyte data pairs. Reference data resulting from benchtop testing an analyte sensor prior to its insertion can be used to provide initial calibration of the sensor data. Reference data from a short term continuous analyte sensor implanted in a user can be used to initially calibrate or update sensor data from a long term continuous analyte sensor.

  • Patent number: 11179069
    Abstract: The present invention relates generally to systems and methods for processing, transmitting, and displaying data received from continuous analyte sensor, such as a glucose sensor. In some embodiments, the continuous analyte sensor system comprises a sensor electronics module that includes power saving features. One feature includes a low power measurement circuit that can be switched between a measurement mode and a low power mode, in which charging circuitry continues to apply power to electrodes of a sensor during the low power mode. In addition, the sensor electronics module can be switched between in a low power storage mode higher power operational mode via a switch. The switch can include a reed switch or optical switch, for example. A validation routine can also be implemented to ensure an interrupt signal sent from the switch is valid.
