Continuous Glucose Control
Elevated blood glucose due to critical illness (“stress hyperglycemia”) is seen in most intensive care unit patients. The elevated blood glucose has detrimental effects on the body through several different mechanisms. Clinicians must balance the risks of stress hyperglycemia versus the risk of dangerous low blood glucose values (“hypoglycemia”).
Most ICUs that focus on blood glucose control, either use inaccurate point-of-care glucometers or accurate and infrequent or time-consuming blood gas analyses.
GlucoSet’s sensors is unique because it delivers high accuracy, rapid measurements and high sensitivity in the hypoglycemic range. GlucoSet is focused on developing products that fit into the existing workflow of nurses and physicians, maximizing the acceptance of new technology.
