Metadata[+] Show full item record
For hyperglycemic patients admitted to an intensive care unit (ICU), the target blood glucose level should be ≤180 mg/dL, not 81 to 108 mg/dL. More aggressive glucose lowering is associated with a higher mortality rate. Strength of recommendation: B: Based on a single, high-quality randomized clinical trial.
