Evolution of insulin sensitivity and its variability in out of hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) patients treated with hypothermia (2014)
Type of ContentJournal Article
PublisherUniversity of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering
Therapeutic hypothermia (TH) is often used to treat out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) patients who also often simultaneously receive insulin for stress-induced hyperglycaemia. However, the impact of TH on systemic metabolism and insulin resistance in critical illness is unknown. This study analyses the impact of TH on metabolism, including the evolution of insulin sensitivity (SI) and its variability, in patients with coma after OHCA.

(University of Canterbury. Electrical and Computer EngineeringUniversity of Canterbury. Mathematics and StatisticsUniversity of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2011)Tight glycemic control (TGC) has emerged as a major research focus in critical care due to its potential to simultaneously reduce both mortality and costs. However, repeating initial successful TGC trials that reduced ...
