help with blood glucose monitoring in ITU.

  1. Please can anyone help with information regarding blood glucose control in intensive care patients and evidence based research that relates to outcome of ITU patients?
    I am also looking for what other units do ie.
    sliding scales guidelines for monitoring blood glucose.
    Any information would be great thanks.

    we have diabetic that are on sliding scale. we did visidex testing three or four times a day, and most of them if its over 200 they get cover. usually the 200 starts with 2 units, and then according to the reading, the insulin gets higher.some of them dont start siding scale, unless they are 250 and up.
