A Closer Look at Dexcom G6 Pro Components

Dexcom G6 Pro single-use applicators, sensors, and transmitters are bundled together in one box, while the Dexcom reader comes in its own box. Take a deeper dive into each of the components and how they work with the Dexcom G6 app and Dexcom CLARITY to support your patients.

  1. Applicator
    The one-touch applicator allows for simple sensor insertion.
  2. Single-use transmitter + sensor
    The disposable transmitter auto-starts for expedited startup time.
  3. Reader
    The reader verifies session start and is for office use only. It does not display any CGM data. As a compatible data extraction tool, it also allows HCPs to upload patient data to Dexcom CLARITY for use in more comprehensive reports.
  4. Dexcom CLARITY
    Using the Dexcom G6 Pro reader, you can upload patient data collected from a Dexcom G6 Pro session to Dexcom CLARITY for reference during session follow-up. You can review a patient’s glucose patterns, trends, and statistics with them at this time and discuss any treatment recommendations.
  5. Dexcom G6 app
    If you prescribe your patient Dexcom G6 Pro for unblinded use, the patient will need to download the Dexcom G6 app (version 1.6.1 or later) for home use with their compatible smart device.*

Quick and easy setup helps
set patients up for success.

Your patients have different lifestyles, needs, and concerns.
As the first and only single-use, professional CGM system
available in blinded or unblinded mode, Dexcom G6 Pro allows
you to align each user’s experience with his or her treatment.

Office Visit

During the initial office visit, the healthcare provider (HCP) starts the session and trains the patient. After sensor insertion and transmitter installation, the transmitter auto-starts. Then, the HCP selects blinded or unblinded mode and uses the Dexcom reader to verify session start.

Dexcom G6 Pro Session

The patient wears Dexcom G6 Pro for up to 10 days in blinded or unblinded mode. If their HCP selects unblinded mode, the patient must be able to download and use the Dexcom G6 app from a compatible smart device.*

*Compatible smart device required for patients to view real-time glucose data and receive real-time alerts when using Dexcom G6 Pro in unblinded mode and is sold separately. To view a list of compatible smart devices, visit dexcom.com/compatibility.

Session Follow-Up

The HCP and patient can review the data through a Dexcom CLARITY report either in office or remotely to discuss session CGM insights. Afterward, the HCP can make appropriate treatment recommendations and submit for reimbursement for CGM setup and interpretation.

†Patients using Dexcom G6 Pro in unblinded mode can choose to share their glucose data with their healthcare provider (HCP) via Dexcom CLARITY, provided that they download the Dexcom CLARITY app on a compatible smart device and successfully use the share code provided by their HCP before starting their Dexcom G6 Pro session.

The first and only single-use, professional CGM available
in blinded and unblinded mode

Blinded Mode
Blinded mode allows HCPs to view a patient's glucose data over a 10-day period, without giving patients access to their data during the Dexcom G6 Pro session. Upon session completion, the patient will be able to review the retrospective data collected by Dexcom G6 Pro with their HCP, using Dexcom CLARITY. From there, they can discuss the CGM data insights and any treatment recommendations.

Unblinded Mode
Unblinded mode is indicated for diabetes management and may only be used for patients with diabetes. This mode allows patients to view and track their own real-time glucose data, giving them a greater window into their diabetes management. Patients will also be able to receive real-time hyper- and hypoglycemic alerts and make diabetes treatment decisions without fingersticks. Upon session completion, the patient will be able to review the retrospective data collected by Dexcom G6 Pro with their healthcare provider, using Dexcom CLARITY. From there, they can discuss the CGM data insights and any treatment recommendations.

‡ If your glucose alerts and readings from Dexcom G6 Pro do not match symptoms or expectations, use a blood glucose meter to make diabetes treatment decisions.





 

You may feel that one mode is more suitable for a patient than the other, depending on his or her individual needs, preferences, and lifestyle. Here are a few factors you can consider when choosing a mode:

Patient Considerations when Selecting Blinded or Unblinded Mode
Patient familiarity with CGM
Patient hesitancy to use a personal CGM
Patient access to a compatible smart device
Patient has or hasn't been diagnosed with diabetes
Patient experiences frequent hypoglycemic events or impaired awareness of hypoglycemia
Patient has discrepancies between their average self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG) readings and their A1C results
