Table 3 Glycemic control

From: Design and implementation of GRIP: a computerized glucose control system at a surgical intensive care unit

Time from admission to first glucose (hours) 0.7 (0.3 to 2.7)
Admission glucose (mmol/L) 8.1 (6.1 to 10.5)
Time to first glucose < 7.5 mmol/L (hours) 5.7 (1.2 to 11.4)
Glucose change in the first 24 hours (mmol/L) -1.2 (-3.9 to +1.4)
Glucose level after 24 hours (mmol/L) 6.7 (6.0 to 7.5)
Fraction of time with glucose between 4 and 7.5 mmol/L 78 % (66 % to 88 %)
Hyperglycemic index (mmol/L) 0.96 (0.68 to 1.37)
Number of glucose samples per day 4.9 (4.2 to 6.2)
  1. This table shows how hyperglycemia is treated in the 107 patients staying more than 1 day at the ICU. Data presented are median (IQR).
