FreeStyle Libre Sensor
FreeStyle Libre is the most unique glucose monitoring device. This enables continuous glucose monitoring without painful pricks. Moreover continuous monitoring is possible round the clock which enables doctors to understand the correct glycemic control of the patient most effectively.
Painless and Easy to Apply
Easily apply the sensor with the disposable applicator which stays on the back of your upper arm for up 14 days.
The FreeStyle Libre sensor can be worn while you shower, swim, bathe or exercise
FreeStyle Libre is the only factory-calibrated glucose monitoring system. No fingerpick calibration required and gives accurate data.
Accurate Sensor Readings
Excellent accuracy overall, in low glucose range, and in pediatric patients
The aim of patient monitoring is to give warning of early or dangerous deterioration and to achieve this by obtaining an optimal compromise involving many design factors, clinical, engineering and economic. A multiparameter monitor is a medical device for monitoring a patient’s vital signs. It is mainly used in intensive care, hospitalization or ER.
In general, basic models are used to monitor cardiac activity (ECG), blood pressure (NIBP), respiration (RESP), oxygen saturation (SpO2) and temperature (TEMP).
They display the value of each parameter while presenting the evolution curves over time. For some models, modules can be added to measure other parameters (ETCO2, CO2, pCO2, IBP, EEG, EMG, etc.). They have audible and visual alarms to alert medical personnel to any risks related to the patient’s condition. Some monitors are designed for veterinary use.
For critical patients at home Multipara Monitors are available on Rental Basis.
Choosing a home blood pressure monitor
The American Heart Association recommends an automatic, cuff-style, bicep (upper-arm) monitor.
- Wrist and finger monitors are not recommended because they yield less reliable readings.
- Choose a monitor that has been validated. If you are unsure, ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice.
- When selecting a blood pressure monitor for a senior, pregnant woman or child, make sure it is validated for these conditions.
- Make sure the cuff fits — measure around your upper arm and choose a monitor that comes with the correct size cuff.
Once you’ve purchased your monitor, bring it to your next appointment
Have your doctor check to see that you are using it correctly and getting the same results as the equipment in the office. Plan to bring your monitor in once a year to make sure the readings are accurate.
Home blood pressure monitoring may be especially useful for:
- Anyone diagnosed with high blood pressure (HBP or hypertension).
- Individuals starting high blood pressure treatment to determine its effectiveness.
- People requiring closer monitoring, especially individuals with risk factors for high blood pressure and/or conditions related to high blood pressure.
- Pregnant women, experiencing pregnancy-induced hypertension and/or preeclampsia.
- Evaluating potentially false readings, like:
- People who only have high readings at the doctor’ s office (“white coat” hypertension).
- People who only have high readings at home but not at the doctor’ s office (“masked” hypertension).
- NOTE: People with atrial fibrillation or other arrhythmias may not be good candidates for home monitoring because electronic home blood pressure devices may not be able to give accurate measurements. Ask your doctor to recommend a monitoring method that works for you.
Left-arm vs. right-arm blood pressure
Several studies have been done to determine what is a normal variation between right and left arm. In general, any difference of 10 mm Hg or less is considered normal and is not a cause for concern.
