Re: [IP] Fwd: [Diabetes Technology Announcements] - Tandem Tslim and G4 integration FDA approved!



 Yes, the T-Slim only replaces the receiver, like the Animas Vibe. The sensor &
transmitter
stay the same, so sorry you still need 2 things inserted into your bode.

> Blickenstaff, President and Chief Executive Officer of Tandem Diabetes Care.
> "CGM integration has been one of the most requested features since the

> > The t:slim G4 Pump is the newest addition to the Company's family of

> pressing, making these features simple to learn and simple to use. Each

> They also feature the Company's Micro-DeliveryB. technology that allows for
> basal delivery every 5 minutes in increments as small as 0.001 unit. The
> t:slim G4 and t:slim Pumps are the slimmest and smallest durable insulin

> > The t:slim G4 Pump can operate as a stand-alone insulin pump without

> be paired with a Dexcom G4 PLATINUM sensor.  When paired with a sensor, the
> CGM component of the pump closely mimics the interface of the Dexcom system,
> tracking glucose continuously and displaying color-coded graphs and arrows

> program personalized information, such as glucose targets and alerts, and
> has an alarm feature to notify the user if glucose levels rise or fall to
> dangerous levels.
