Device: Dexcom G6 Pro Continuous Glucose Monitor (CGM)
A DexCom G6 CGM will be implanted on the subject’s abdomen contralateral to the surgical site (i.e. left abdomen for right knee or right hip replacements) no less than 30 cm from the surgical site. This CGM shall be termed “primary” for study purposes. Subjects will wear the primary DexCom G6 CGM for the entirety of the following 10-day timeline: 3/4-days pre-operative, day of hip or knee replacement surgery, and 5/6-day postoperative recovery.
A second CGM will be implanted in subjects postoperatively while in the Post Anesthesia Care Unit (PACU). This CGM, termed “secondary” for study purposes, will be implanted immediately adjacent to the primary CGM. Subjects will wear the secondary DexCom CGM for the 7 days: day of hip or knee replacement surgery (postoperatively) and 5/6-day postoperative recovery.
