What to Prescribe
Dexcom G6 Components
Patients or caregivers can insert the sensor with the auto-applicator, then snap in the transmitter. Then, they will be able to view glucose data from the transmitter via a patient's selected display device. The auto-applicator comes pre-loaded with sensor.
Dexcom G6 Receiver
Allows patients to view their real-time glucose data and trends. Dexcom G6 also enables patients to receive a suite of alerts, an Urgent Low alarm, and other notifications on their display device,* which can help warn them of high or low glucose levels.
Dexcom G6 Transmitter
Fastened on top of the sensor; sends data wirelessly to the wearer's compatible display device* (3-month lifespan).
Dexcom G6 Auto-applicator
Provides simple sensor insertion at the push of a button. A patient can apply the sensor on their own by following the instructions for use.
Dexcom G6 Sensor
Monitors interstitial glucose levels through a small wire inserted just underneath the skin, sending a signal to the transmitter (10-day lifespan).
