COLD SWEAT NIGHT TIME ALARM
Worn on wrist or ankle, this device will give an audible warning if your blood sugar drops in the night giving cold sweats.
This monitor can detect the symptoms of hypoglycaemia (low blood sugar in diabetics).
It is a self contained device that incorporates two sensors located on the rear of the product, which is designed similar to a wrist watch. These sensors, when in contact with the skin of the wrist or ankle, respond to perspiration and body temperature (cold sweats) which are two common symptoms of low blood sugar. If a cold sweat is detected, a built in vibrator operates along with a tone beeper alarm. The persistent vibration from the alarm is sufficient to disturb most users from sleep, enabling a blood test and remedial action to be taken quickly. This alarm is for use when sleeping - it is not intended to be used as a day time alarm. When used in accordance with the instruction guide, it can detect early symptoms of hypo glycaemia and thereby helps to reduce the likelihood of more serious health complications. The device has a comfortable adjustable elastic strap that exerts sufficient pressure to hold the sensors firmly against the skin. The outer case is manufactured from a durable ABS material that is durable and long lasting. The only ongoing maintenance required is to replace the lithium 3V battery - which is likely to be required a couple of times a year. There is a low battery warning tone to advise of battery replacement requirement.
Operation of the alarm is very simple and it provides confirmation beeps for button operation, so is also usable by those who may be sight impaired.
By keeping a record of night time alarms, the data can be used in conjunction with the user's GP, to adjust insulin or eat as required.
The alarm is lightweight too only weighing 17g.
Certified in accordance with the medical directive 93/42/EEC.

CAUTION : ALARM MAY TRIGGER AS PART OF REGULAR NIGHT TIME SWEATS - IN THIS CASE PLEASE SIMPLY RESET THE ALARM.
