Investigation of Correlation Between Interstitial and Arterial Blood Glucose Concentrations in Septic Patients
An Open, Mono-Centre Trial to Investigate the Correlation Between the Interstitial and Arterial Blood Concentrations of Glucose During Subcutaneous Glucose Monitoring in Patients With Severe Sepsis at the Medical Intensive Care Unit

This is a mono-centre trial performed at the medical ICU at the Medical University Graz. There will be a study visit (V1) and a follow-up assessment (V2). In the study visit (V1) arterial blood glucose values will be monitored and subcutaneous sampling of interstitial fluid (ISF) with microdialysis for glucose determination and with microperfusion for cytokine-measurement will be performed. The study visit will last for 26 hours starting with the insertion of two catheters in the abdominal subcutaneous tissue (one microdialysis- and one microperfusion catheter). The primary hypothesis of the study is: Interstitial fluid glucose concentration profiles correlates to the arterial blood glucose concentration profile in patients with severe sepsis in the medical ICU.
