Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Peter Thule, Atlanta VA Medical Center
  Purpose
ISMAS is designed to test the hypothesis that self management of insulin dependent diabetes mellitus by selected patients admitted for elective surgery is more efficacious than standard care with respect to overall glycemic control, attaining finger-stick blood sugars, and administering insulin.

Condition Intervention
Diabetes Mellitus Hyperglycemia Hypoglycemia Procedure: Self blood glucose monitoring and insulin administration Procedure: Standard care

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Health Services Research
Official Title: Inpatient Self Monitoring and Administration Study (ISMAS)

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • number of blood glucose measurements obtained/number of blood glucose measurements ordered [ Time Frame: patients will be followed for the duration of hospital stay, an expected average of 5 days ]
  • number of insulin doses administered/number of insulin doses prescribed [ Time Frame: patients will be followed for the duration of hospital stay, an expected average of 5 days ]
  • average blood glucose [ Time Frame: patients will be followed for the duration of hospital stay, an expected average of 5 days ]

Enrollment: 1
Study Start Date: December 2007
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2016 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Standard care
Patients admitted for elective surgery will receive standard diabetes care, including but not limited to finger stick blood glucose determinations, and insulin injections delivered by the nursing staff.
Procedure: Standard care
finger-stick blood glucose values to be obtained and all insulin administration to be delivered by nursing staff
Experimental: Patient administered care
Patients will self-monitor and record finger-stick blood glucose measurements, and self administer insulin at doses agreed upon with the consulting endocrinology in-patient service.
Procedure: Self blood glucose monitoring and insulin administration
Patients will monitor blood glucose using a hand-held blood glucose monitor, and self-administer insulin
