Re: [IP] Re: Question #1: Enlite vs. Sof-Sensor
As for Jerrybs question, I have used the Sof Sensors for up to 12 days (4
cycles), and found the 2-3 iterations to be the most accurate. The 4th was kind
of flaky, but I think that was due to the tape getting kind of gooey, and the
sensor moving around in my body.
Iteration #1: about 90% accurate (+/- 10 mg/dl vs. fingerstick)
Iterations 2-3: About 98% accurate (+/- 2 mg/dl vs. fingerstick)
Iteration 4: about 85% accurate (+/- 15 mg/dl vs. fingerstick)
I think that the answer to #1 is that the protocol of the sensor communication
is the key. If it doesnbt say, bHEY! IbM A SOF-SENSORb and the pump doesnbt
care, as long as there is communication, then there should be no problems.
Minimed to Minimed devices is the key.
