The CareSens N test strips are for use with the CareSens N meter to quantitatively measure glucose in fresh capillary whole blood samples drawn from the fingertips and alternative sites such as the forearm, palm, thigh, and calf. Ensuring accurate results with CareSens test strips is the key to have precise glucose results.
Getting Accurate Results with CareSens N Test Strips
CareSens N Blood Glucose Monitoring System is used for the quantitative measurement of the glucose level in capillary whole blood as an aid in monitoring diabetes management effectively at home or in clinical settings.
CareSens N Blood Glucose Monitoring System should be used only for self-testing outside the body (in vitro diagnostic use only). CareSens N Blood Glucose Monitoring System should not be used for the diagnosis of diabetes or for testing newborns. Testing sites include the traditional fingertip testing along with
alternate sites testing on forearm, palm, thigh and calf.
According to CareSense N Owner’s Booklet, the CareSens N Blood Glucose Monitoring System uses the CareSens N test strips for self-testing outside the body (in vitro diagnostic use). The glucose in the blood sample mixes with special chemicals on the test strip to produce a small electrical current. The CareSens N meter detects this electrical current and measures the amount of glucose in the blood sample.
The CareSens N Blood Glucose Meter is designed to minimize code related errors in monitoring by using the no-coding function. • The CareSens N Blood Glucose Meter should be used only with the CareSens N test strip.
An abnormally high or low red blood cell count (hematocrit level over 60% or below 20%) may produce inaccurate results. If your test result is below 3.3 mmol/L or above 13.3 mmol/L, consult a healthcare professional immediately. • Inaccurate results may occur in severely hypotensive individuals or patients in shock. Inaccurate low results may occur for individuals experiencing a hyperglycemichyperosmolar state, with or without ketosis. Critically ill patients should not be tested with blood glucose meters.
Ensure Accurate Results with CareSens N Test Strips using CareSens Control Solution
You may check your meter and test strips using the CareSens Control Solutions (control A, B and/or C). The CareSens Control Solution contains a known amount of glucose and is used to check that the meter and the test strips are working properly. The test strip vials have CareSens Control Solution ranges printed on their labels. Compare the result displayed on the meter to the CareSens Control Solution range printed on the test strip vial. Before using a new meter or a new vial of test strips. To learn more about checking your system with a control solution visit Checking Your CareSens N with CareSens Control Solution.
