[en] Intensive care units ; Tight glycemic control
[en] Critically ill patients often present stress-induced hyperglycemia and low insulin sensitivity. Recent studies have shown that high blood glucose (BG) levels are linked to worsened patient outcomes and increased mortality. Tight glycemic control (TGC) aims at reducing BG levels taking into account inter-patient variability, evolving physiological patient conditions and minimizing hypoglycemic risks. Clinical protocols are used to specify insulin and nutrition rates and BG measurement time interval during control. This research compares different protocols to determine the best one to use at the CHU of Liege.
