Glucose Oxidase Sputum testing

  1. Help on a technical question: by now, it's pretty well common knowledge that blue dye in the tube feeding is out. How many of you use glucose oxidase test strips (the same ones you use for accuchecks) to test sputum for glucose? If you use them, how do you get by the not-approved-for-this-use manufacturer's disclaimer? If anyone has a policy they'd share off-line my email is: jmeyer@baptisthealthsystem.org . Thanks, JeannieM
