The Dexcom G6 Pro Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) System is the latest professional CGM system created by Dexcom for healthcare providers (HCPs). Dexcom G6 Pro is factory-calibrated—zero fingersticks are required.* Dexcom G6 Pro features a one-touch auto-applicator and a single-use, disposable transmitter that auto-starts. The Dexcom G6 Pro CGM System is comprised of a sensor, transmitter, and (if used in unblinded mode) a patient’s compatible smart device.† In unblinded mode, Dexcom G6 Pro sends glucose readings to a patient’s compatible smart device every five minutes.
Some of your patients may be interested in learning more about their daily glucose readings and trends. They may want to try Dexcom before investing in a personal CGM to see how the alarm and alerts work, or get a feel for the system as a whole. As long as your patient has a compatible smartphone,* they can use the Dexcom G6 app and experience Dexcom G6 Pro in unblinded mode.
*Patient must have a compatible smart phone for an unblinded mode session. To view a list of compatible devices, visit dexcom.com/compatibility
Blinded mode allows you to capture your patients’ normal behavior without the influence of real-time CGM. Some of your patients also may not have a compatible smartphone, so they can’t use the Dexcom G6 app. Other patients may not be as interested in following their glucose patterns on a daily basis. Blinded mode allows a greater range of patients to experience Dexcom G6 Pro, even if they are not as actively involved during a session. In blinded mode, you may also use Dexcom G6 Pro to assess glycemic variability for patients with or without diabetes.
The Dexcom G6 Pro transmitter records data up to 10 days. At the end of the session, the HCP has up to 30 days from the CGM insertion date to extract data from the transmitter, using the reader. The Dexcom G6 Pro transmitter is disposable and cannot be reused.
The Dexcom G6 Pro reader* is used by the HCP 1) to verify the start of a Dexcom G6 Pro session and confirm that the transmitter is working properly before the patient leaves the clinic, and 2) to extract data* from the transmitter during or at the end of the Dexcom G6 Pro session. The reader is used to upload patient data to Dexcom CLARITY for use in more comprehensive reports.
*The Dexcom G6 Pro reader will not display CGM values and is for office use only.
The reader is required to extract data from Dexcom G6 Pro only in blinded mode.
In unblinded mode, if the patient successfully sets up the Dexcom G6 app on his or her compatible smartphone* during the Dexcom G6 Pro session, the HCP can access the patient’s data by initiating the share code through Dexcom CLARITY. Refer to the Dexcom CLARITY User Guide for Clinics under the “Patient Data Sharing” section.
