BACKGROUND The relationship between admission hyperglycemia and adverse outcome in myocardial infarction has been shown consistently. However, achieving and maintaining normoglycemia in ST elevated myocardial infarction (STEMI) patients has proven difficult. This study aimed to investigate the efficacy of sensor-augmented insulin pump (SAP) therapy to treat hyperglycemia. METHODS In a randomized controlled pilot trial, we assigned 20 patients, 30-80 years old, admitted with STEMI and… CONTINUE READING
