The presentation starts with an introduction to the use of Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) in patients with diabetes. The principal section covers the major technological approaches to measure glucose continuously with implanted sensors, such as electrochemical and fluorescence-based technologies. The final part comprises algorithm-related aspects relevant for CGM sensors, in particular filtering and calibration.

The lecture, part of the Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering Course Technology and Diabetes Management, was given by PD Dr. Arnulf Staib from Roche Diagnostics, Mannheim, Germany. (Download the invitation)
