Checking blood sugar

How do ACCU-CHEK lancing devices help reduce pain?

ACCU-CHEK lancing devices all use technology that minimizes side-to-side motion for less skin tearing. Plus, the way our beveled lancets are precisely designed and manufactured allows for smoother entry. Finally, each device offers 11 customizable depth settings to help match your skin type and help eliminate blood glucose testing pain.

How do I run a blood sugar check on a non-fingertip site?

Your ACCU-CHEK lancing device has a special clear plastic cap designed for testing on other areas of the body.1  Note: Do not use the clear cap when testing at the fingertip.

Follow the steps for fingertip testing, with a few differences:

  • Use the clear cap instead of the blue plastic cap.
  • You may need a deeper setting. Try 3 for palm testing or 5-1/2 for forearm or upper arm testing. (These are suggested settings, yours may differ.)
  • Press the opening of the clear cap firmly against a fleshy area of the non-fingertip site. Press the lancing device up and down in a slow pumping motion to assist the flow of blood.
  • Keep steady pressure on the area, then press and release the plunger. Do not be afraid to apply pressure to the area with the lancing device to assist the flow of blood. Continue to press the cap against the site for a few seconds to allow blood to come to the surface.

1Talk with your healthcare professional before deciding if alternate site testing is right for you.

 

How do I use the ACCU-CHEK Multiclix lancing device?

Use the Comfort Dial to adjust penetration depth. To prime the device press the priming plunger down like a pen, as far as it will go. The release button turns yellow when the lancing device is ready. Place the device firmly against the skin and click the release button to lance.

Which Comfort Dial setting should I use?

Your most comfortable setting will depend on a few things:

  • Whether you're using a fingertip or alternate site.1
  • Your skin type. Softer, thinner skin requires a shallower setting than thicker skin.
  • The required blood sample. The more blood you require, the higher the setting you'll need.

Start with a low setting when using the device for the first time. Dial to a higher setting until blood volume is right. For alternate sites, try 3 for palm testing or 5-1/2 for forearm or upper arm testing. (These are suggested settings, yours may differ.)

`1Talk with your healthcare professional before deciding if alternate site testing is right for you.

How do I use the clear alternate site testing cap?

Remove the black or blue cap from the lancing device. Attach the clear plastic cap, and twist the dial until you reach your chosen setting. Prime the lancing device, and place the clear cap firmly against the selected site.1 Press the release button to lance.

Lancet drum

How do I change the lancet drum?

To change the drum, grasp the cap by the notch and remove it from the device. Insert a new drum—blue ring first—until it snaps into place. Replace the cap on the lancing device. The first lancet is ready to use.

How do I advance to a new lancet?

When you insert a new drum, a “6” appears in the oval lancet counter window indicating that there are 6 lancets remaining. A new lancet can be chosen by twisting the priming plunger.

Can I use a lancet more than once?

We strongly recommend the use of a new, sterile lancet every time you test. The tip of a new needle is sharp and precisely formed to ensure gentle lancing, but the tip can become dull or bent if used more than once. What's more, a new lancet is sterile and hygienic. For these reasons, the ACCU-CHEK Multiclix lancing device will not allow you to re-select a used lancet.

How do I safely dispose of a used lancet drum?

The lancet drum may be disposed of in a sharps container.

If the ACCU-CHEK Multiclix lancing device or drum is dropped on a hard surface, the lancets may stick out slightly from the drum and could cause injury. If you drop a drum, always pick it up at the red-striped end and dispose in a sharps container.
