  • 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.

  • Patent number: 11006829
    Abstract: Systems, devices, and methods are disclosed for wireless communication of analyte data. One such method includes, during a first interval, establishing a first connection between an analyte sensor system and a display device. During the first connection, the method includes exchanging information related to authentication between the analyte sensor system and the display device. The method includes making a determination regarding whether authentication was performed during the first interval. During a second interval, the method may include establishing a second connection between the analyte sensor system and the display device for transmission of an encrypted analyte value, and bypassing the exchanging of information related to authentication performed during the first connection.

  • Publication number: 20200275894
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for detecting changes or fluctuations in an analyte concentration signal that are abnormal, e.g., exceed a predetermined threshold, current trend of analyte concentration measurements, etc. Signals indicative of an analyte concentration in a host may be received from an analyte sensor. The signals may be monitored, and a determination can be made as to whether there is a change in the signal. Upon detecting such a change, the change can be compensated for such that a representation of the signal indicates the analyte concentration. Optionally, the cause of the detected changes or fluctuations can also be determined and information regarding the detected changes or fluctuations can be recorded and analyzed for subsequent optimization of the systems and methods as well for transmitting alerts, notifications, etc. to a user to take corrective action.
