The device, which is the first minimally invasive CGM system specifically designed for use in hospital critical care units, has received CE Mark accreditation and is now set to play a key role in optimising glucose management practices.

Sentrino provides real-time trend data to serves as an early warning system and help doctors appropriately intervene to prevent glycaemic excursions, while it has also been designed to integrate seamlessly into clinical workflows.

Greg Meehan, vice-president and general manager of the CGM business at Medtronic, said: "Medtronic has a decade of CGM expertise and we coupled it with extensive clinical research to develop the Sentrino CGM System for critically ill patients."
