Associations between dynamics of the blood glucose level after hypoglycemia and intensive care unit mortality: a retrospective multicenter study

Abstract

Dear Editor, Hypoglycemia could offset the beneficial effects of tight glycemic control [1, 2] and transitions from hypoglycemia to hyperglycemia could be more harmful than hypoglycemia itself [3]. We compared intensive care unit (ICU) mortality in quartiles of three metrics for blood glucose level dynamics calculated from blood glucose measurements… (More)
