Wow! What a great idea, I cannot wait to try it!

We did that with our DKA scenario and it worked great! We didn't have a finger cot, so we used tegaderm and it worked well to keep the cotton ball in place. We did have some problems getting our glucometer to read something other than HIGH, so we still need to work on the concentration.
It also occurred to us that if we wanted the students to do multiple readings we could put different concentrations on different fingers (with instructions on which finger to poke).
