Regular use of continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) in type 1 diabetes management increases the achievement of glycemic targets and reduces health care utilization, specifically emergency department (ED) visits. This retrospective chart review examined the effects of CGM use in patients with type 1 diabetes in a pediatric ED. Use of CGM was associated with several differences in patient management in the ED. This work is a first step toward development of guidelines for the appropriate use of CGM in the pediatric ED. In the future, CGM use in type 1 diabetes may lead to reduced ED-specific health care costs.
