  • Publication number: 20210251531
    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.

  • Publication number: 20210045698
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus, including computer program products, are provided for remote monitoring. In some example implementations, there is provided a method. The method may include receiving, at a remote monitor, a notification message representative of an event detected, by a server, from analyte sensor data obtained from a receiver monitoring an analyte state of a host; presenting, at the remote monitor, the notification message to activate the remote monitor, wherein the remote monitor is configured by the server to receive the notification message to augment the receiver monitoring of the analyte state of the host; accessing, by the remote monitor, the server, in response to the presenting of the notification message; and receiving, in response to the accessing, information including at least the analyte sensor data. Related systems, methods, and articles of manufacture are also disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20210007640
    Abstract: Systems and methods for a continuous monitoring of analyte values received from an analyte sensor system are provided. One method for a wireless data communication between an analyte sensor system and a mobile device involves storing identification information associated with a transceiver of the analyte sensor system, the identification information entered by a user of the mobile device via a custom application running on the mobile device; causing the custom application to enter a background mode; searching for advertisement signals; receiving an advertisement signal from the transceiver; authenticating the transceiver based on the identification information; prompting the user to bring the custom application to a foreground mode; causing the custom application to request a confirmation from the user that a data connection with the transceiver is desired; receiving the confirmation from the user; and completing the data connection with the transceiver.

  • Publication number: 20200337615
    Abstract: “Zero-click” viewing of sensor data without any user input is provided. A display with sensor data may be “always on,” and may enable discrete viewing of sensor data without significant user hassle. Also, a system may be configured to display only current data, and/or to display the most current data for only a set interval. Also, one device in a continuous analyte monitoring system may be designated as a primary device, or hub, for receiving sensor data, and may control the flow of information and/or alerts to other devices in the system. Sensor data and/or alerts may be sent to a hierarchy of devices and/or persons in a designated order.

  • 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.
