Treating hyperglycemia may improve patient outcome, but is a clinical challenge. Three variations of a computerized insulin protocol were compared with regard to protocol compliance and achievement of glucose target levels. In group 1, the existing protocol was applied, in group 2 the protocol was modified to account for decreasing glucose values; group 3 had a higher threshold for initiating insulin, wider glucose target ranges, and included instructions to regulate glucose around mealtimes… CONTINUE READING
