ATLANTA, Aug. 22, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Most people with diabetes and caregivers are found using finger-tip lancing techniques that are not consistent with best practices and also cause a tremendous amount of pain. Perhaps this is why people suffering from diabetes avoid checking their blood glucose levels every few hours. Failure to check glucose levels multiple times a day is considered dangerous and ill-advised by doctors. Thus, after working closely with Dennis Ernst, MT(ASCP), NCPT(NCCT), a leading a Key Opinion Leader (KOL) renowned for his work in phlebotomy, HTL-Strefa has developed two proprietary lancing techniques that are easy to perform while reducing pain at the same time. Now, for the first time since its inception, HTL-Strefa is sharing their proprietary innovative lancing techniques for free at the NACDS Total Store Expo taking place in Denver, Colorado on August 26th and 27th.

HTL-Strefa – Introducing Lancing Techniques that Put Trauma to Bed

It is no surprise that people suffering from diabetes dread performing blood glucose monitoring by collecting their blood samples every few hours. From checking glucose levels after meals and exercising or before bedtime, people with diabetes rely on themselves or caregivers to lance for blood samples. Regardless of who administers the test, people are traumatized because of the pain it causes. However, a major cause of the undue pain is from patients receiving inadequate training for best practices in lancing techniques or worse, no training at all.

To reduce the trauma surrounding this important part of daily diabetes management, HTL-Strefa has worked with Dennis Ernst to develop the best practice lancing techniques and expert diabetes educator Nathan Painter, PharmD, FAADE, CDE, to teach people how to perform them. The two techniques, namely Droplet Lancing Technique®, for personal lancing, and HTL-Strefa Lancing Technique®, for lancing administered at medical facilities and clinics, are geared to reduce the amount of pain while improving the quality of the blood sample. As part of HTL-Strefa's mission to improve the lives of people managing diabetes, the company has also designed a super-thin 33-gauge lancet to reduce pain regardless of the person's skin type. HTL-Strefa seeks to revolutionize the industry practice all together with their products and techniques so people collect their blood samples more often, as advised, and do not contaminate their blood samples by inefficient methods.
