IV Insulin for Hospitalized Patients

Elevated glucose is common in hospitalized patients, with or without diabetes. The metabolic stress of acute illness leads to worsening insulin resistance. This slide library discusses in-patient hyperglycemia management and presents guidelines on in-patient glycemic targets. It also covers the use of insulin infusion protocol and electronic glucose management systems (eGMS) as well as the improved outcomes with computerized protocol. This slide deck is a good overview for any healthcare provider who works with hospitalized patients.
