Question


  1. What is the accuracy of continuous glucose monitoring systems and flash glucose monitoring systems compared to arterial, venous, or capillary reference samples among people with diabetes in acute care settings?

  2. What is the clinical effectiveness of continuous glucose monitoring systems and flash glucose monitoring systems in managing blood glucose levels among people with diabetes in acute care settings?

  3. What are the evidence-based guidelines regarding the use of continuous glucose monitoring systems and flash glucose monitoring systems in managing blood glucose levels among people with diabetes in acute care settings?


Key Message

Three randomized controlled trials and 13 non-randomized studies were identified regarding the clinical effectiveness and accuracy of continuous glucose monitoring and flash glucose monitoring systems in managing blood glucose levels among people with diabetes in acute care settings. One evidence-based guideline was identified regarding the use of continuous glucose monitoring and flash glucose monitoring systems in managing blood glucose levels among people with diabetes in acute care settings.
