Per our POC Manager:The reportable range of our glucometers is 10-600. We suggest a repeat and main lab testing if they get a result outside of this range.
We also suggest a repeat and main lab testing if the result is a critical value or anytime the nurse suspects that the result is not consistent with the patient's clinical picture.
0 - 3 months: <40 mg/dL or >200 mg/dL
3 mos. – 1 yr: <40 mg/dL or >500 mg/dl
1yr. – 150 yrs: <50 mg/dL or >500 mg/dL
It is left up to the provider to request a recheck.Our linearity is 20-600 so anything less than 20 or greater than 600 must be sent for a blood collection and recheck in the laboratory.Rick Panning
