Paradigm Real-Time Revel System Medtronic MiniMed
Northridge, CA 91325
Approval for the Paradigm Real-Time Revel System. This device is indicated for: Paradigm REAL-Time Revel insulin pump.  The Paradigm REAL-Time Revel insulin pumps (MMT-523/MMT-723) are indicated for the continuous delivery of insulin, at set and variable rates, for the management of diabetes mellitus in persons requiring insulin.  The Paradigm REAL-Time Revel system consists of the Paradigm MMT-523/MMT-723 insulin pumps, the Enlite glucose sensor (MMT-7008), and the MiniLink Transmitter (MMT-7703). Use of the Paradigm MMT-523/MMT-723 insulin pumps with the optional sensor and transmitter components is indicated for continuous or periodic monitoring of glucose levels in the fluid under the skin, and possible low and high blood glucose episodes in adults (ages 18 and older).  Enlite Sensor:  The Enlite sensor (MMT-7008) is intended for use with the Paradigm REAL-Time Revel insulin pump systems (MMT-523/MMT-723) to continuously monitor glucose levels in persons with diabetes. Glucose values provided by the Paradigm REAL-Time Revel system are not intended to be used directly for making therapy adjustments, but rather to provide an indication of when a fingerstick may be required. All therapy adjustments should be based on measurements obtained using a home glucose monitor and not on the sensor glucose readings provided by the Paradigm REAL-Time Revel system.

Animas Vibe System Animas Corp.
West Chester, PA 19380
Approval for the Animas Vibe System. The Animas® Vibe™ System consists of the Animas Vibe Insulin Pump paired with the Dexcom G4 Platinum CGM sensor and transmitter. The Animas Vibe Insulin Pump is intended for the continuous subcutaneous infusion of insulin for the management of insulin-requiring diabetes. It can be used solely for continuous insulin delivery or as part of the Animas Vibe System to receive and display continuous glucose measurements from the Dexcom G4 PLATINUM Sensor and Transmitter. The Animas Vibe Systems continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) is indicated for detecting trends and tracking patterns in persons (age 2 and older) with diabetes, and is intended to complement, not replace, information obtained from standard home glucose monitoring devices. CGM aids in the detection of episodes of hyperglycemia and hypoglycemia, facilitating both acute and long term therapy adjustments, which may minimize these excursions. Interpretation of results from the Dexcom G4 PLATINUM Sensor and Transmitter should be based on the trends and patterns seen with several sequential readings over time. The Animas Vibe System is intended for single patient use in persons age 2 and older and requires a prescription.
