Medtronic has announced a new product – mySentry.

MySentry is a remote glucose monitor — so a parent can look at a monitor in a different room and see the Continuous Glucose Monitor’s latest reading of their child’s blood sugar.

mySentry works with a patients MiniMed Paradigm® REAL-Time Revel™ System. mySentry’s monitor can be in the room of caregiver and the patient can be in a different location in the house. The caregiver can glance at the monitor to see if anything is wrong – if there are any alarms, low or high blood sugar, and more. No longer do parents have to wake their child up several times at night to check their blood sugar. They don’t even have to stay in the same room so they can hear the continuous glucose monitor’s alarms.  Pretty cool.
