Pilot Trials of STAR Target to Range Glycemic Control
INTRODUCTION. Tight glycemic control (TGC) has shown benefits in cardiac surgery ICU patients. STAR (Stochastic TARgeted) is a flexible, model-based TGC protocol accounting for patient variability with a stochastically derived maximum 5% risk of blood glucose (BG) below 90 mg/dL. OBJECTIVES. To assess the safety, efficacy and clinical workload of the STAR TGC controller in pilot trials.
