A reflective account of blood glucose monitoring simulated skills. This essay reflects upon blood glucose monitoring skills that was learnt at the skills Laboratory, and experienced during my clinical practice with a diabetic service user. Blood glucose monitoring is a way of gaining an indication concentration of glucose blood, thereby allowing diagnosis and treatment of a condition, (Endacott et al, 2009). In the United Kingdom (UK), it was predicted that the current 2.6 million people diagnosed with diabetes will peak to over 4 million by 2025, (Diabetes UK, 2010). According to Endacott et al 2009, monitoring blood glucose has a vital role to play in minimising the development of such complications as retinopathy, neuropathy, cardiovascular disease and stroke.
Purpose: This lab is to test the difference in reaction of the bacteria’s cell wall to different chemicals. The test is to differ two different categories of bacteria, Gram positive, which are stained by crystal violet dye, and Gram negative, which are stained by red dye – safranin. Analysis: 1) In what way(s) is the cell wall different between Gram positive and Gram negative? - Gram positive bacteria has a significant high amount of peptidoglycan in its cell wall which let it retains the crystal violet stain. Another significant different between Gram positive and Gram negative organisms is that Gram positive organisms lack outer membrane found in Gram negative.
To identify the gram-negative bacterium the following tests were performed: SIM, TSIA, Urease, MR, Citrate, MacConkey, and EMB. To identify the gram-positive bacterium the following tests were performed: NSM, Catalase, Coagulase, MSA, SFA, and Bile Esculin. Following these tests the conclusion was made that the unknown gram-negative bacterium was Salmonella typhimurium and the unknown gram-positive was Staphylococcus saprophyticus. The importance of this project was not just to identify but also to become familiar with the detrimental and essential nutrients of both gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria. It is also essential to understand how to separate and identify different bacterium among a sample in order to treat each bacterium separately.
Experiment-Specific Questions Experiment 1: Monosaccharide Test Fill in the table below with the results from the monosaccharide test experiment, and your conclusions based on those results. Results Monosaccharide Test Solution Initial Color Color with Benedict's Solution Color After Heating Monosaccharide? glucose solution water sucrose solution fructose solution Benedict’s solution is added to white grape juice and heated. The color changes from blue to orange. Based on this result, what biological molecules are present in the white grape juice?

And at ninety five degrees Celsius, all of the starch was present. From these results it is concluded that the test tubes in the zero and forty degrees Celsius, the amylase enzymes were properly functioning in a slower rate. The amylase in the sixty degree Celsius water baths were functioning in their optimal conditions since there was no starch present. It is concluded that the amylases in the ninety five degrees Celsius were denatured since starch was present throughout the whole experiment. Introduction Enzymes are the biological catalysts that regulate reactions in cells
This test is also called a casual blood glucose test. Oral glucose tolerance test is used to diagnose prediabetes and diabetes. An oral glucose tolerance test is a series of blood glucose measurements taken after you drink a sweet liquid that contains glucose. This test is commonly used to diagnose diabetes that occurs during pregnancy (gestational diabetes). For more information, see the medical test Oral Glucose Tolerance Test.
