Comparison of arterial and capillary blood glucose with the use of the Accu-Chek III



Comparison of arterial and capillary blood glucose with the use of the Accu-Chek III



Progress in Cardiovascular Nursing 10(4): 27-30



Glucose monitoring is a widely-used procedure in caring for critically ill patients. The determination of a blood glucose using arterial blood has not been approved with the use of glucose meters. After comparing the data from 75 subjects using the parameters established by the American Diabetes Association, arterial blood proved to be an accurate indicator of a subject's blood glucose level. The benefits enjoyed by both the patients and nursing staff establish a convincing reason to incorporate this procedure into current nursing practice. This article will describe the sample, method and results used to affect change in clinical practice.
