The FDA has recently announced that it now requires hospital meters to be specifically cleared for use with critically ill patients.


Unless specifically cleared for use with these patients, the use of glucose meters is considered by the FDA and CMS to be off-label/high complexity testing, respectively, when used with critically ill patients.


To date, only one glucose meter, the Nova StatStrip Glucose Hospital Meter System, has been found to be accurate enough to obtain this new FDA clearance.


This seminar will discuss the impact of these new developments on bedside glucose testing. It also includes a complimentary breakfast, course materials, and lunch with time to network with your fellow POCCs or interested parties in POCT.


Come to share what’s going on at your hospital or ask questions/chat with colleagues at other area hospitals about POCT.
