Study Start Date: December 2003
Study Completion Date: September 2004
Detailed Description:

This prospective, observational study was performed in the medical-surgical ICU of a single hospital within a large multi-specialty healthcare system.

It was determined that it was not standard care to do glucose testing on all patients admitted to medical/surgical ICU's who did not have diagnosed diabetes and varied widely with the admitting service.

The primary objective of the study was to assess the availability and clinical value of blood glucose testing at the time of ICU admission after testing was implemented as routine care in the ICU.
