In our role as emergency medical service responders, we are called upon to assess the condition of patients experiencing a medical emergency or traumatic injury. To help us better understand what may be causing a patient’s symptoms we have trained and equipped our Emergency Medical Technicians to test blood glucose levels. This is one more tool that we are adding to help us assess and treat patients experiencing life threatening emergencies faster and more thoroughly. Our equipment and procedures are in compliance with State of Connecticut Department of Public Health regulations and with approval of Middlesex Hospital. This is another enhancement to help us help you!
