Hypoglycemia Detection in Critical Care Using Continuous Glucose Monitors: An in Silico Proof of Concept Analysis
Type of content
Tight glycemic control (TGC) in critical care has shown distinct benefits but also been proven to be difficult to obtain. The risk of severe hypoglycemia (< 40 mg/dL) has been significantly increased in several, but not all, studies, raising significant concerns for safety. Continuous glucose monitors (CGMs) offer frequent measurement and thus the possibility of using them for early detection alarms to prevent hypoglycemia.
