Alternate Site Testing is a procedure in which capillary blood is taken from
sites other than the finger tips; A fleshy part of the arm or some other site
which is free from visible veins and hair may be used.
This can be beneficial because sites can be chosen which are less sensitive
than the finger tips and therefore offer a greater degree of comfort during
regular blood sampling.
Alternate Site Testing generally produces less blood flow and smaller samples
than the normal finger tip procedure but is suitable for producing samples
for use with certain blood glucose monitoring systems.
Before attempting Alternate Site Testing users are advised to consult the
instructions supplied with their blood glucose monitoring system and talk to
their professional medical advisor.
