Improving Diabetes Management

OUTLINE

Glycemic Targets for Hospitalized Patients

Recognizing Symptoms of Hypoglycemia

Reducing Incidence of Hypoglycemia

Symptoms & Critical Interventions for Hyperglycemia

Consequences of Acute Hyperglycemia

Treating Special Populations Using a Simple Formula

Insulin for Improved Glucose Control

Oral Agents in the Hospital Setting

Safety Issues with Managing Insulin Pumps

System Improvements Positively Impacting Patient Outcomes

Putting It All Together

OBJECTIVES

  1. Breakdown glycemic targets for the hospitalized patient
  2. Detect symptoms of hypo/hyperglycemia
  3. Communicate metabolic consequences of acute hyperglycemia
  4. Utilize a standardized approach to managing glucose in patients on steroids, tube feedings and TPN
  5. Calculate basal/ bolus (prandial) insulin dosing to achieve optimal glucose control
  6. Formulate 2 ways the bedside nurse can reduce the incidence of hypoglycemia in the hospital
  7. Analyze the use of oral agents in the hospital setting
  8. Assess safety issues with using insulin pumps in the acute care setting
  9. Communicate 2 system improvements that positively impact patient outcomes
