Hospitalized patients using continuous glucose monitoring devices and insulin dosing apps


Speakers: Pratik Choudhary, Lori Berard

Speaker biosDisclosures

Diabetologist Pratik Choudhary and Nurse Consultant Lori Berard discuss considerations around the use of diabetes self-management technologies within the hospital setting. This video focuses on inpatient use of continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) devices and dosing apps (8:14).

Learning points

  • The basics on how CGM devices work.
  • Self-management benefits that CGM devices and dosing apps can convey to the individual with diabetes.
  • How embracing the patient’s autonomy and device oriented self-care routines may benefit the treating clinician.
  • How and why interstitial glucose measurements can vary from capillary glucose measurements.
  • Approaches to integrating capillary glucose measurements into the care of patients using a CGM device.

How real-world studies complement randomized controlled trials

Jean-Pierre Riveline uses data from real-life continuous glucose monitoring studies to illustrate how these can uncover critical information about clinical outcomes that are hard to assess in randomized controlled trials.
