Who’s who in CGM sensors...
Sensor augmented pumps
the omniPod insulin pump can be used with any available continuous glucose monitoring
system (cgm). minute-to-minute glucose information from cgm technology such as Freestyle
navigator or Dexcom 4 users get info on whether their blood sugar trend is going high or low
and can use the PDm to adjust your insulin as necessary. the animas Vibe insulin pump is cgm-
enabled with Dexcom technology combining sensor accuracy with a week’s worth of sensing
built in per sensor and using the smallest introducer needle on the market. medtronic’s Veo
pumps are sensor-augmented with medtronic’s own enlite sensor system.

the medtronic enlite sensor (pictured left) works with a transmitter
which talks to either a stand alone monitor or a sensor-enabled
medtronic Veo pump.
