The Anonymous Widower

A Coaguchek Failure

I get on well with my Coaguchek, but I did have a failure in Sweden.

The batteries chose to run out and I then had to reset the device.

Unfortunately, it is not an easy process to do without the manual, which I deliberately had not taken.

An ideal device would have a quick setup, where it took defaults for everything.  After all, you always write down all your results and don’t rely on things like the date set into the device.

Everything should be simple and intuitive. It isn’t and the manual is needed too often. It also just gives you error numbers, rather than a proper error message.

The outcome was that I missed one of daily tests.  Not important for me, as I just took the average Warfarin dose of 4 mg.

  2. My blood glucose meter is easy to manage, dont need to re-set things, because it isnt a fancy one which stores data. However, it too gives error codes which is very annoying when I am out somewhere and I dont know that particular code. I am not insulin dependent and so if that happens and I am worried in case it might be low I will just eat something appropriate, but if I used insulin it would be a serious and potentially life threatening matter.
