Can someone help me.....What is it with different numbers on Insulin Charts.....Almost every chart I look up whether its in a text book or online, have different peak, action or duration times for the same insulin. Can someone tell me which one is actually acurate.....unbelievable.

the best way to anwer this question is to read your facility's p&p's. they will most likely have their own chart to use.

if not, then find out what is protocol .

hope this helps.!

I would look for this info from the manufacturer of the insulin. It should be listed in the med info sheet that comes with the product or can be found in the latest edition of the PDR. Otherwise, I would choose a specific reference and always use that reference unless told to do otherwise.
