This publication describes a retrospective analysis of an inpatient real-time continuous glucose monitoring (RT-CGM) program at a community hospital and the accuracy of the system. Authors concluded RT-CGM for inpatient diabetes monitoring is feasible, is a reliable comparator to POC (point-of-care) testing, prevents adverse patient outcomes through safe and timely treatment decisions, and poses minimal risk when used for management decisions.
