1. Turn the meter over so the
display screen is facing down.
Open the meter by pressing
down on the back edge of the
open latch and then pulling
up on the base.
Open Test Disc Package
2. Open a new 10-Test Disc
package. Check the

(with the bumpy side up),
aligning the 5 notches in
the disc with the tabs on
the meter.

4. Close the meter and
snap it shut. Keep
the meter flat when
closing it.
HelpfulHint: The meter must be kept flat when
closing. If the meter is not kept flat, the disc may move
and become damaged and you may waste test strips.

Bayer Diabetes Care Helpline: 1-800-268-7200
Counting the Number of Strips Left
Your Breeze Meter will
automatically count down the
number of test strips you have
left. The number is shown with
your test result. To see the
count when the meter is off,
press the
button.
NOTE: This count is reset to 10
every time you open the meter.
To keep an accurate count,
open the meter only when all
10 of the test strips have been
used in the 10-Test Disc.
Your meter will also tell you
when you need to insert a new
10-Test Disc. It will do this by
showing a picture of a disc
being inserted into the meter.

runnIng a Blood glucosE tEst:
1. Wash your hands well with
soap and warm water. Rinse
and dry thoroughly.
Prepare Lancing Device
2. Remove the endcap
from the MicroLet
Adjustable Lancing Device.
(See MicroLet Device
package insert for complete
instructions.)
3. Loosen the cap on a
lancet by rotating it
¼ turn (do not remove).
0
Bayer Diabetes Care Helpline: 1-800-268-7200
Then insert the lancet firmly
until it comes to a full stop.
This will “cock” the device.
4. Twist off the lancet cap and
replace the endcap.
Push Out Test Strip
5. Your Breeze Meter uses
a special, easy-to-use “Pull
and Push” design.
Here’s how it works:
Hold the meter comfortably in
one hand. Firmly grasp the
meter handle with the other
hand (shown here). Now, just
“Pull and Push”—“Pull” the
handle out until it stops and
“Push” it back in until it
stops again.
HelpfulHint: There is no need to turn the meter on—
just “Pull and Push.”
www.ascensia.ca
NOTE: After the meter handle
is pushed in, the release button
is UP, a test strip is pushed out,
and a series of “apply blood”
prompts appears. The meter
is now ready to run a blood
glucose test.
CAUTION:
• Your meter is designed to push out one test strip at
a time. Do not attempt to push out a new test strip
with one already showing.
• Discard any test strip that has been removed from
the meter. Never re-insert a test strip into the meter.
6. Stick your finger and form a
small round drop of blood.
Bayer Diabetes Care Helpline: 1-800-268-7200
Test
7. Your test strip is like a
straw—it sips in a sample
of blood. Move the entire
front edge of the test strip
until it touches the edge
of the blood drop, without
touching the finger. The
blood is automatically
pulled into the test strip
and fills the test strip.
Hold the test strip in place
until the meter beeps, then
move the meter away.
For best results:
• Blood is pulled IN the test
strip, not dropped ON.
• Do not allow blood to
run down into the meter.
• Do not add more blood
to the test strip after the
meter beeps.
www.ascensia.ca
8. After the beep, the display
counts down from “5” to “1.”
Your test result then appears
on the screen.
HelpfulHint: The number
displayed in the upper left
corner is the number of test
strips remaining in your
10-test disc.
IMPORTANT: If you want
to mark this result as a deleted
blood test, you must do
that now, while the result
is still being displayed.
See “Marking a Deleted
Blood Test” on page 17.
Bayer Diabetes Care Helpline: 1-800-268-7200
9. To release the used test
strip, hold the meter with
the test strip pointing down
over a waste container.
Press the release button.
Be sure the heel of your
hand is not against the
meter handle.
NOTE: If you block the meter
handle with your hand, the test
strip may not release properly.
10. Press the
button to turn the meter off.
NOTE: If you forget to turn your meter off, it will
turn off automatically after three minutes. This will
save battery power.
www.ascensia.ca

PRECAUTIONS:
• Test your blood again if your glucose result is below
2.8 mmol/L, above 13.9 mmol/L or if the meter
shows “LO” or “HI.” If your glucose level is still
below 2.8 mmol/L, above 13.9 mmol/L, or if the
meter again shows “LO” or “HI,” it may indicate a
potentially serious medical condition.
If this is the case: Consult your physician or healthcare
professional immediately.
• Do not change your medication based on blood
glucose results with your BREEZE Meter without
the advice of a physician or healthcare professional.
• Your meter has been preset and locked to display
results in mmol/L (millimoles of glucose per liter).
Test results in mmol/L will always include a decimal
point. In some countries, the meters are preset to
display results in mg/dL (milligrams of glucose per
deciliter). Test results in mg/dL will never include a
decimal point.
Example:
or
If your test result is displayed in the wrong unit of
measure (mg/dL), contact your authorized Bayer
representative or call the Bayer Diabetes Care
Helpline at 1-800-268-7200.

Bayer Diabetes Care Helpline: 1-800-268-7200
MarkingaDeletedBloodTest
NOTE: Marking a test result as a deleted blood test
excludes it from all of the averages that are calculated
by your meter.
You must mark the result immediately after the test is
performed—while the result is still displayed on the
screen. To do this, follow these steps:
1. Open the Button Door
(see page 3).
2. Press the
button to mark
as deleted.

Understanding Your Test Results
Expected Blood Glucose Values
Blood glucose values will vary from time to time depending on food intake, medication dosages, health, stress or
exercise. Consult your physician or healthcare professional
for the target glucose values appropriate for you. Standard
medical practice goals for a typical non-pregnant individual
with diabetes are:1
• Before a meal: 4.0–7.0 mmol/L
• 2 hours after a meal: 5.0–10.0 mmol/L
Symptoms of High or Low Blood Glucose
You can better understand your test results by being
aware of the symptoms of high or low blood glucose; this
will also help you decide what to do if your results seem
unusual. Some of the most common symptoms are:*
High blood glucose (hyperglycemia): frequent urination,
excessive thirst, blurred vision, increased fatigue, extreme
hunger, and irritability.
Ketones (ketoacidosis) from untreated hyperglycemia:
shortness of breath, nausea and vomiting, very dry mouth.
Low blood glucose (hypoglycemia): shakiness, sweating,
fast heartbeat, blurred vision, strange behavior, confusion,
passing out, and seizure.
18
Bayer Diabetes Care Helpline: 1-800-268-7200
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, test
your blood glucose. If your result is below 2.8 mmol/L
or above 13.9 mmol/L, or is displayed as “LO” or “HI,”
contact your doctor immediately.
*For additional information and symptoms, refer to the
website for the Canadian Diabetes Association:
www.diabetes.ca
Unusual Test Results
If your blood glucose result doesn’t match the way you
feel, follow these steps:
1.run a control test (see page 20);
2.retest your blood glucose (see page 10);
3.call your doctor immediately if your result still does not
agree with the way you feel.

clEanIng your mEtEr:
Your Breeze Meter can be cleaned using a moist (not
wet) lint-free tissue with a mild detergent or disinfecting
solution (1 part bleach mixed with 9 parts water). Do not
use alcohol. Wipe the outside
of the meter, taking care to
keep detergent or disinfecting
solution from running down into
the test strip slot. Wipe dry with
a lint-free tissue after cleaning.
If you do get moisture in the
test strip slot, wick it away with
a corner of a tissue as shown.
Inspect the test strip slot, from
both the inside and outside, for
debris and foil. Gently remove
if found.

rEPlacIng thE BattEry:
Your Breeze Meter uses one 3-volt lithium battery
(CR2032). A battery will already be installed in the meter
when you buy it.
A flashing battery on the screen
means that it is time to put a
new battery in the meter. You
will not erase test results in
the meter’s memory when you
change the battery. You may
need to reset the time.
CAUTION: If you have a low
battery in your meter, you
should replace the battery
within approximately 20
readings or one week.
NOTE: When battery life is too low to perform a test,
the display will show only a battery symbol. When this
occurs, the meter will not allow you to run a test until
the battery is changed. When battery life has completely
ended, nothing will show on the display and the meter
will not respond.
