Glucometer

  1. 1. A Glance at Glucometer Bense Tony. J Anna University Chennai
  2. 2. GLUCOMETER~ Glucose meter is a medicaldevice for determiningapproximate concentration Ofglucose in the blood.~ Key Element of Home BasedGlucose Monitoring
  3. 3. StructureGlucose- It is amonosaccahride with thechemical formula C6-H12-O6
  4. 4. Need Of Glucose~Glucose is essential forcell respiration~It also helps thephotosynthesis in plants
  5. 5. ~Also used as a source ofenergy in cells throughaerobic and anaerobicrespiration~Glucose plays importantrole in various metabolicfunction in the body.SoGlucose level must bemaintained periodically.
  6. 6. Glucose Level chart
  7. 7. Parameters of the Device~ The device is almost apalm sized one~It works on battery so thatthe device is a portable~ 0.3 to 1 microlitre ofblood is enough for the test
  8. 8. ~ The test strips containchemicals that react withthe glucose in the blood.~Result is displayed inmg/dl[US, France, Japan,India] & in mmol/dl [Canada,Australia, China, UK]Germany uses both units.
  9. 9. How to HandleRequirements:~ Glucometer~ Test Strips~ Lancet
  10. 10. Steps :~ Get the requirements in readycondition~ Wash hands to preventinfection~Decide where you are gettingthe blood -Fingers -Forearms -Less sensitive areas
  11. 11. ~Warm Hands for faster flowof blood~Fix The strip in theglucometer and when it isready pierce the finger tipand a get a drop of hangingblood~The results are displayedin approx. 40 seconds.
  12. 12. Advantages :~Patients with “Type 1”diabetes and “Type 2”diabetes are in a need totest their sugar levelseveral times a day which ismade simple usingglucometer.
  13. 13. ~Patients sufferingimmediate raise or suddendown of glucose level couldcheck immediately theirglucose level and consult adoctor.~lock/memory chips in itstore the details about eachtest done
  14. 14. ~Data transfer to anotherdevice is made simple as thedevice includes connectivityoptions.~This device is moreaccurate in figuring theresults compared to the LabTests results.
  15. 15. Thank You
