Figure 72 This patient is wearing a GuardianĀ® RT, continuous real-time glucose monitor. The sensor measures interstitial fluid glucose levels providing up to 288 glucose readings per day. The glucose sensor is connected to a transmitter that communicates with a monitor using radiofrequency technology to display real-time glucose values every 5 minutes on the monitor screen. Alarm thresholds can be set to alert patients when glucose levels become too high or too low. Unfortunately, the device is prohibitively expensive as is the cost of the sensors
