Description

Capillary blood glucose monitoring is an essential component of diabetes care. Blood glucose tests provide important information about how the body is controlling blood glucose metabolism, and the effect of glucose-lowering medicines, illness and stress.

The nurse should consider the rationale for testing blood glucose each time they perform a test, and reflect on the result, taking into consideration the patient’s blood glucose target range and recommended care guidelines.
Blood glucose testing times and testing frequency should be planned to suit the glucose-lowering medicine regimen and the clinical situation.

Objectives

On completion of this course you will gain an understanding of:
Outline nursing policy on blood glucose monitoring.
List the equipment required to monitor blood glucose.
Describe how to perform a blood glucose check.
Explain the importance of checking blood glucose and the complications that may arise.
