USA—The Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI) has published the 2nd Edition of POCT05—Performance Metrics for Continuous Interstitial Glucose Monitoring.
POCT05 provides consensus information for health care professionals, in vitro diagnostic and medical device manufacturers, and regulatory agencies regarding how continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) data should be assessed for accuracy, how CGM systems should be assessed for factors that can decrease accuracy, and how CGMs should be operated for optimal performance. This guideline defines and explores multiple aspects of CGM performance, including use cases, point and trend accuracy, evaluation of threshold alerts, system stability and reliability, clinical studies for assessing CGM performance, calibration, and measurement traceability.
This standard also discusses special considerations such as:
