Efficacy of Structured Insulin Order

2014-08-27 03:13:26 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to determine whether an electronic order template for basal-bolus insulin will improve mean blood glucose in hospitalized general medical patients with poorly controlled type 2 diabetes.

Description

The study randomly assigned internal medicine residents to use an electronic insulin order template plus basal-bolus ordering education versus education only. For all patients with uncontrolled type 2 diabetes treated by these physicians, mean blood glucose, rate of hypoglycemia, and rate of sliding scale insulin use were measured.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A subclass of DIABETES MELLITUS that is not INSULIN-responsive or dependent (NIDDM). It is characterized initially by INSULIN RESISTANCE and HYPERINSULINEMIA; and eventually by GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE; HYPERGLYCEMIA; and overt diabetes. Type II diabetes mellitus is no longer considered a disease exclusively found in adults. Patients seldom develop KETOSIS but often exhibit OBESITY.

The time period before the development of symptomatic diabetes. For example, certain risk factors can be observed in subjects who subsequently develop INSULIN RESISTANCE as in type 2 diabetes (DIABETES MELLITUS, TYPE 2).

Urination of a large volume of urine with an increase in urinary frequency, commonly seen in diabetes (DIABETES MELLITUS; DIABETES INSIPIDUS).

A subtype of DIABETES MELLITUS that is characterized by INSULIN deficiency. It is manifested by the sudden onset of severe HYPERGLYCEMIA, rapid progression to DIABETIC KETOACIDOSIS, and DEATH unless treated with insulin. The disease may occur at any age, but is most common in childhood or adolescence.

Diabetes mellitus induced experimentally by administration of various diabetogenic agents or by PANCREATECTOMY.
