How to use your Accu Chek Active Glucometer
1. Before Testing
First of all, make it sure that your hands are clean and disinfected. Wash your hands with warm water. You will require the following items to carry out the procedure
- Accu Chek Active Glucometer
- Test Strip
- Lancing device
- Alcohol Swab
Obtain a test strip from the strip package and close the cap of strip package immediately. Also turn on the Accu Chek Active Glucometer by inserting the test strip on the glucometer. All Roche Glucometers are automated devices and works better in automatic mode.
2. Taking Blood Sample
Use the lancing device, and always use a brand new lancet to get a drop of blood from the fingertip. A blood sample from the fingertip makes it easier to pass the blood into the test strip. Disinfect the finger with the help of alcohol swab before prick. After the prick, gently squeeze the finger if the blood drop is not prominent, but avoid touching the blood drop.
3. Applying Blood On Strip
Carefully put the blood drop on the strip, make it sure that the blood drop completely covers the column on the test strip. If the column on the strip is not full, the result would not be accurate. Hence complete column makes certain that glucometer has sufficient blood sample to provide you an exact reading.
4. Obtaining Blood Sugar Results
Once the loaded strip is filled with the sufficient amount of blood, the glucometer will countdown and display the results on its screen. If the blood sample is less than the amount necessary, you have the option to re-dose it within 10 seconds. Once the blood glucose level is displayed, you can write down the results.
How to clean your Accu Chek Active Glucometer?
Remove the used strip and keep it away from the strip box. Remove the lancet from the lancing device and put it into a puncture-proof bottle to avoid any accidental injuries. Then discard the used test strip and lancet. Keep the waste away from the reach of children and other animals. Wash your hands with soap and water. After applying soap, rub your hands for at least 10 to 15 seconds, following antiseptic washing guidelines. Check the strip applying area of your Accu Chek Active Glucometer properly. If any blood spot is sticked there, remove it carefully with a clean cotton. Also keep all the accessories in the carrying case and keep it in a safe place.
