Sometimes you might hit a small capillary vein when installing the sensor, causing a small bleed. Generally, the bleeding should stop in a few minutes and the sensor will still read just fine. The amount of blood will generally be just a few drops but might look like it is more as it has spread under the sensor. In the rare event that the bleeding should not stop or you are experiencing pain, do let us know so we can help.
