Glucose meter accuracy is vital to achieve safe and effective glycemic control in critically ill patients but can be compromised by endogenous and exogenous interferences that are common in this patient population. The StatStrip Glucose Hospital Meter System is a point-of-care, handheld blood glucose monitoring system that was specifically designed to automatically correct for interferences and provide accuracy comparable to the central laboratory. StatStrip Glucose is the only blood glucose monitoring system to be cleared by the Food and Drug Administration as accurate enough for use with all patients including the critically ill. Extensive analysis has proven that StatStrip Glucose improves glycemic control, patient outcomes, and test utilization. StatStrip Glucose does not require calibration coding and provides comprehensive networking and connectivity and extensive user training.
