2 ACCU-CHEK® Inform Full Training Copyright © 2004 Roche DiagnosticsV2.1 12/20041 Roche ACCU-CHEK® Inform Blood Glucose Meter with the ACCU-CHEK® Comfort Curve™Test Strip and the Roche Safe-T-Pro™ Lancets Sarasota Memorial Hospital

3 ACCU-CHEK® Inform Full Training Copyright © 2004 Roche DiagnosticsV2.1 12/20042 Required to run 2 levels (HI and LO) of quality control once per 24 hours. Regulatory requirements (Joint Commission and CAP) mandate an “audit trail” or “tracer” for each test (including patient/operator ID, reagent lot, day/date/time). Most of this information will be “scanned” in the meter. Draw a STAT lab draw for values outside SHM’s “Critical Values”. Required to write the open/discard dates on all control bottles (3 month expiration after opened). Comments are required for QC that “fails” or patient results that are outside “critical values”. The meter will remind you of this requirement. Hospital Policy Requirements System Features ANY sample can be used (capillary, venous, arterial, neonatal and cord) on the ACCU-CHEK® Inform meter. The ACCU-CHEK® Inform is programmed with SMH’s “critical values” (below 40 mg/dl and greater than 400 mg/dl). Strips packaged in 50 test strip vials and expire the date on the vial. Bar code scanner for quickly scanning strip vials, control bottles, patient and operator IDs.

4 ACCU-CHEK® Inform Full Training Copyright © 2004 Roche DiagnosticsV2.1 12/20043 Other System Features Comments are easily added to each test result, are unlimited and customized by nursing and the laboratory. There are separate comments for QC results and Patient results. Communicate through touchscreen buttons, that in most cases, action will not occur until after you release the button. Feel free to use any soft plastic point, fingernail or your finger (do not use a ballpoint pen with the ballpoint exposed or anything that may scratch/mark the screen). The ACCU-CHEK® Inform is automatically calibrated with the code key in each vial of 50 strips (assures accuracy and should be replaced with each vial of strips). Touch-screen display that allows you also to manually input ALPHA characters (A,B,C …). The meter uses a 5 YEAR rechargeable battery and a docking station for EACH meter (where it should be stored when not in use). The ACCU-CHEK® Inform valid readable range is 10 to 600 mg/dl. Results below 10 mg/dl will report “LO”. Results above 600 mg/dl will report “HI” (see next slide).

5 ACCU-CHEK® Inform Full Training Copyright © 2004 Roche DiagnosticsV2.1 12/20044 Test Ranges and Critical Values (with messages displayed under each patient test result) RANGE: Normal “within” range values seen for healthy adult population. “Range” “Out of Normal Range” “Out of Normal Range” “Out of Critical Range” “Out of Critical Range” OUT OF NORMAL RANGE: Values seen for outside healthy adult population. OUT OF CRITICAL RANGE: Lab back-up must be drawn. SMH’s range selected is below 40 mg/dl and above 400 mg/dl. This message will be flashing at you to remind you that this an “Out of Critical Range” patient test result. ACCU-CHEK® Inform READABLE RANGE Values that the ACCU-CHEK® Inform will report a result (10 mg/dl to 600 mg/dl). A result below 10 mg/dl will report a “LO” and a result above 600 mg/dl will report a “HI”. >400>600<40<10 “HI” “LO”

19 ACCU-CHEK® Inform Full Training Copyright © 2004 Roche DiagnosticsV2.1 12/ Miscellaneous Information The Accu-Chek INFORM® has been programmed by SMH to warn you (and eventually lock you out) if the meter has not been downloaded after a certain time period (you may use any download station within the hospital). Only valid (certified) operators will be allowed to use the meter (all others will be locked out). You must be certified annually. If cleaning is required, you may either use alcohol, a damp cloth with a soapy solution or a 10% bleach wipe (to disinfect). Dry off the meter with a soft towel after cleaning. Do not saturate the meter or place a damp meter into a docking station. If a replacement meter is needed, a replacement meter should be available in the laboratory. Keep the lid tightly on the strip vial (strips expire the date on the vial). Do not use strips that have been left out of the strip vial. Write the date on each new bottle of glucose controls (the discard date on control bottles is 3 months after opened).

20 ACCU-CHEK® Inform Full Training Copyright © 2004 Roche DiagnosticsV2.1 12/ Troubleshooting Tips Tips regarding docking and un-docking the meter:  Always wait 3-5 seconds after taking meter off base unit before pressing the Purple Power Button to turn the meter on.  NEVER place a wet meter (from cleaning or a spill) into the electric docking station.  Make sure the ACCU-CHEK® Inform meter is OFF before docking in base unit.  Whenever you dock the meter, you should see a box around “Transmitting” for 15 to 45 seconds (after that you will see a box around either “Connecting” or “Idle”). Recessed Reset Button  Insert a large paperclip or the blue pin from a Roche Safe-T-Pro™ lancet and push the “recessed reset button” for about 1 second.  The “Palm Computing Platform” will appear on the screen and the meter will restart. Re-dock the meter and allow it to “Transmit”. You will not lose any patient data by resetting the meter. If you have any issues with the meter not responding, you may reset the meter. TO RESET THE ACCU-CHEK® INFORM METER:  Turn the meter over. Locate small hole on the bottom right side of the ACCU-CHEK® Inform meter (on battery cover).

21 ACCU-CHEK® Inform Full Training Copyright © 2004 Roche DiagnosticsV2.1 12/ Fingerstick Glucose versus a Venous Puncture Glucose Performed in the Laboratory In situations of decreased peripheral blood flow, fingerstick blood testing may not be appropriate (i.e. severe dehydration - increased plasma sodium in the critical range, hypotension, shock or peripheral vascular disease). Underdosing the Accu-Chek® Comfort Curve™ strip can lead to erroneous readings. All users should be aware that the yellow window of the strip must be completely filled during the entire process. ² Tietz Textbook of Clinical Chemistry, 2 nd Edition; Carl A. Burtis and Edward R. Ashwood, Editors; 1994; Page 959 and ¹ Tietz Textbook of Clinical Chemistry, 2 nd Edition; Carl A. Burtis and Edward R. Ashwood, Editors; 1994; Page 959. In the non-fasting state, capillary (finger stick) blood glucose levels can be up to 70 mg/dL higher than venous (lab draw) blood glucose levels¹. Glycolysis (the breakdown of glucose) can be another cause for a higher meter-to-lab analyzer comparison². One of the main benefits of using a bedside meter is the elimination of the issue of glycolysis, especially in neonate samples². Be sure to send the blood sample immediately to the lab for processing within 30 minutes.
