1. A method for measuring a concentration of an analyte in a vein of a host, the method comprising:

  • passing a reference solution at a flow rate of from about 0.001 ml/min to about 0.02 ml/min past an analyte sensor configured to measure an analyte concentration, wherein the analyte sensor is a component of an analyte measuring system comprising a vascular access device, the analyte sensor, and electronics operatively connected to the analyte sensor and configured to generate a signal associated with the analyte concentration, wherein the analyte sensor resides within the vascular access device, and wherein the vascular access device and the analyte sensor are in fluid communication with a vein of a host;

    measuring a signal associated with an analyte concentration of the reference solution;

    drawing back a sample from the vein of the host; and

    measuring a signal associated with an analyte concentration of the sample.
