Blood glucose monitoring

The Accu-Chek Advantage blood glucose meter was approved for use under pressure and we have used it successfully in our multiplace chamber for years.  Unfortunately, this model is no longer manufactured and no other Accu-chek models are approved for use under pressure.  Does anyone know of an alternative meter that has been cleared for use under pressure?

We are in the same situation at our place and we have decided to change to pre- and post-dive glucose checks. According to many papers on this topic, this should be fine with regard to avoiding developing hypoglycemia. However, you will need some sort of a protocol to follow. Check the literatur - many good articles.
