|Abstract:||A poster presentation regarding the comparison of medical devices used for blood pressure and blood glucose measurement. Introduction: The advent of medical devices that could be used to monitor blood pressure and blood glucose levels within a point-of-care testing scenario or by the patient within a self-monitoring exercise has revolutionised the management of hypertension and diabetes. The number of medical devices which offer the possibility for point of- care testing or patient self-monitoring has increased over the past decade. However, clinical usefulness of measurements of clinical parameters may be jeopardised due to the medical device used. Aim: To compare medical devices used for point-of-care testing and patient self-monitoring of blood pressure and blood glucose levels.|
