The OneTouch Ultra 2 monitor provides quick, accurate blood sugar level readings, according to OneTouch. The device also gives patients the tools they need to monitor their blood sugar levels over time, such as showing seven-, 14- and 30-day averages.
Other features of the OneTouch Ultra 2 monitor include the ability to add meal flags for foods that dramatically increase blood glucose, a memory and download port, and a large, backlit screen that is easy to read in various lighting conditions, according to OneTouch.
To test blood sugar with the OneTouch Ultra 2 meter, insert a clean, dry test strip, match the meter code with the test strip code, and prick the finger when the Apply Blood instruction appears on the screen, instructs OneTouch. Results appear within five seconds.
