Help Answer Questions About Using Continuous Glucose Monitors in the Hospital

You'll get questions about continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) in the more patients start using them at home.

How do continuous glucose monitors work? Patients wear a sensor with a fine needle on their arm or abdomen. The sensor measures interstitial fluid glucose every one to five minutes...and is changed every 6 to 10 days.

This may help reduce fingersticks for patients who check glucose often...such as those on an insulin pump or multiple insulin injections.
