Uncontrolled hyperglycemia in the inpatient setting is a common occurrence and is clearly associated with an increase in adverse outcomes including morbidity, mortality, and increased costs. Hospital hyperglycemia in nonpregnant adults may be due to known type 1 or type 2 diabetes, previously unrecognized diabets, and/or stress associated with illness and hospitialization. Barriers contributing to suboptimal glycemic control in the inpatient setting are multifactorial and include deficits in knowledge regarding insulin requirements in health and in illness, prescribing, adjusting, and/or administering an insuling regimen tailored to acute care setting needs; fear of inducing hypoglycemia and lack of effective processes/protocols for implementing glycemic management stratagies hospital-wide. This video will support clinicians seeking to optimize hyperglycemia management protocols by applying current hyperglycemia management recommendations and stratagies to clinical practice. Dr. Michelle Magee reviews the prevalence and impact of hyperglycemia in the hospitalized patient; the evidence for implementing glycemic control; the latest clinical recommendations, stratagies, and protocols for impatient insulin management; and effective discharge planning which facilitates a smooth transition from hospital to the outpatient setting.
