Monitors, Physiologic, Glucose

Definition : Physiologic monitors designed for continuous or near continuous measurement and display of a patient's glucose level. These monitors consist of a small electronic unit that is usually worn by the patient (e.g., placed around the wrist, carried in a pouch), an LCD display, and attached glucose sensors that may be inserted in the subcutaneous tissue or noninvasively (usually by measuring interstitial fluid extracted from the skin). Also available are glucose monitors intended to improve self-management (i.e., personal) of glucose levels and to record information for further analysis of glucose level trends in diabetic patients; and monitors intended to provide remote information useful for diabetes management (e.g., to program insulin infusion pumps) are available.
