Computerized Algorithm Can Enable Tight Glycemic Control

The Glucommander computerized intravenous insulin controller (CIIC) for insulin dosing enables providers to avoid hypoglycemia by accurately controlling patients’ blood glucose to desired target levels.

What if your facility could safely and effectively achieve tight glycemic control among patients in the intensive care unit (ICU) with little danger of severe hypoglycemia? According to study results presented at the American Diabetes Association 70th Scientific Sessions, this outcome is possible through the use of Glucommander, a computerized algorithm that accurately manages intravenous insulin.
