The t:slimG4™ System is made up of the t:slim® G4 Insulin Pump, the Dexcom G4 PLATINUM Sensor, and the Dexcom G4 PLATINUM Transmitter. The t:slimG4™ Insulin Pump delivers insulin in two ways: continuous, or basal insulin delivery, and bolus insulin delivery to cover carbohydrates eaten (food bolus) and to lower high blood glucose (correction bolus). A disposable cartridge is filled with up to 300 units of insulin and attached to the pump. The cartridge is replaced every few days.
The Dexcom G4 PLATINUM Sensor is a disposable device that is inserted under the skin to continuously monitor glucose levels for up to 7 days. Only the G4 PLATINUM Transmitter will connect to and work with the System. The Dexcom G4 PLATINUM Transmitter connects to the sensor pod and wirelessly sends readings to the pump display every 5 minutes. The display shows sensor glucose readings, trend
graph, direction and rate of change arrows. The sensor is discarded after a session of up to 7 days. The transmitter is reusable and is replaced about every 6 months.
The sensor measures glucose in the fluid under the skin – not in blood, and sensor readings are not identical to readings from a blood glucose meter. You still need a blood glucose meter to help make treatment decisions and to calibrate your CGM on a regular basis to help ensure the accuracy of sensor glucose readings.
The t:slim G4 Insulin Pump can be used for basal and bolus insulin delivery with or without Dexcom G4 PLATINUM CGM. If the Dexcom G4 PLATINUM Sensor and Transmitter are not used, sensor glucose readings will not be sent to the pump display and you will not receive any sensor glucose alerts.
Glucose is more than just a number with the t:slim G4
Even if you do everything right, there’s a big part of the picture you’re not seeing if you rely on finger sticks alone. Many people test less than 6 times per day. The t:slim G4™ System provides up to 288 readings per day, giving you insights that finger sticks can’t.
The Dexcom difference
Dexcom sets the standard for accuracy and performance, and consistently ranks #1 in customer loyalty.3,4 Dexcom sensors feature a small, comfortable, easy-to-wear design, and they last up to seven days, the longest sensor wear available.
