Remote Glucose Monitoring of Hospitalized, Quarantined Patients with Diabetes and COVID-19

Source: Diabetes Care

Key Takeaway: In summary, converting a personal CGM system originally designed for diabetes self-management to team-based, real-time remote glucose monitoring offers a novel tool for inpatient diabetes control in COVID-19 isolation facilities. Such a solution in addition to ongoing remotely monitored clinical parameters (such as pulse rate, electrocardiogram, and oxygen saturation) adds to quality of diabetes care while minimizing risk of staff exposure and burden.
