Blood glucose monitor /glucometer

On call plus

  • Model: On Call Plus

The “Oncall Plus” blood glucose meter is a device used by diabetics to measure their blood sugar levels.

  1. Ease of Use: Many modern blood glucose meters, including the Oncall Plus, are designed to be user-friendly. They typically have a straightforward process: insert the test strip, apply a small blood sample, and read the results on the digital display within seconds.

  2. Test Strips: The meter will be compatible with specific test strips, which are usually proprietary to the manufacturer. Users should ensure that they purchase the correct strips for their device.

  3. Memory Storage: Like many glucose meters, the Oncall Plus might have the capability to store a certain number of previous readings. This can be useful for tracking glucose levels over time.

  4. Portability: Blood glucose meters are generally compact and portable, allowing users to take readings on-the-go.

  5. Battery Life: Depending on the model and frequency of use, the battery life can vary. Some devices use standard batteries, while others might be rechargeable.

  6. Coding: Some glucose meters require “coding” each time a new box of test strips is opened. This typically involves entering a code or using a chip that comes with the test strip box. However, many newer meters are “no code,” meaning this step is unnecessary. Check the user manual for specifics about the Oncall Plus.

  7. Accuracy: Accuracy is paramount when it comes to glucose readings. The Oncall Plus, like all glucose meters, should meet certain accuracy standards set by health regulatory bodies. However, it’s always a good idea to cross-check new meters with lab results or another trusted meter from time to time.

  8. Affordability: The cost of the meter itself is just one factor. The ongoing cost of test strips, which are consumed with each reading, can be a significant consideration for many users.
