Harmony Blood Glucose Monitoring System

Manufacturer: Medline
  • Meter accepts venous whole blood or capillary whole blood drawn from patient's fingertips, palm or forearm to provide fast results in eight seconds
  • Only 0.8 microliters is needed for a sample, so there is less patient discomfort associated with the needle stick and blood draw
  • Test strip ejector located on the side of meter allows you to dispose of used strips directly into the trash
  • Eliminates your contact with used strips to help reduce the risk of cross contamination
  • Wide hematocrit range of 10% to 70% allows you to care for higher acuity patients

More about this item

Accuracy improves care.

A growing number of long-term care residents have conditions or receive treatments that can skew the accuracy of blood glucose readings, which can lead to inaccurate treatment and dosing. From the #1 supplier of glucose test strips in long-term care, our Harmony Blood Glucose Monitoring System aids in making informed treatment decisions for your most vulnerable residents.

Features

GDH-FAD test strips do not react with any sugars other than glucose, thus providing truly accurate glucose readings

GDH-FAD Chemistry is not affected by changes in Oxygen Levels

Small sample size helps with discomfort

Harmony’s wide hematocrit range allows caretakers to care for higher acuity residents/patients

Study of Residents on Supplemental Oxygen Therapy

Study goal: accurately capture blood glucose readings across complicated diabetic residents on supplemental oxygen therapy.

Background

Changes in the amount of oxygen dissolved in blood (PO2) cause inaccurate blood glucose readings in devices that utilize the enzyme glucose oxidase.2

Situation

Studies of residents on supplemental oxygen therapy revealed that elevated P02 levels inaccurately underestimated glucose measurements in monitors that utilize the enzyme glucose oxidase.2

Results

The Harmony Blood Glucose Monitor captures glucose readings with an average bias of -2% to 6% in blood adjusted to different oxygen content levels.3

Takeaway

The Harmony Blood Glucose Monitor has the ability to capture accurate test results across a wide range of blood oxygen content.

Study of Residents with Anemia

Study goal: accurately capture blood glucose readings across complicated diabetic residents with anemia.

Background

Anemia, a condition in which there is a lack of healthy red blood cells to carry adequate oxygen to the body’s tissues, may falsely elevate diabetic test results.4, 5

Situation

Approximately 64% of chronic skilled-nursing home residents are diagnosed with anemia with 11.4% having anemia of moderate severity (hemoglobin of ≤10 g/dl or hematocrit of ≤ 30%).1

Results

When compared to a laboratory-grade glucose analyzer, the Harmony Blood Glucose Monitor demonstrated an average of ±2% bias at hematocrit values below 20%.3

Takeaway

The Harmony Blood Glucose Monitor has the ability to capture accurate test results across a wide hematocrit range.
