The purpose of this study is to determine whether subcutaneous continuous glucose monitoring in critically ill patients is clinically feasible accurate and reliable.
Hyperglycemia is is associated with more complications and higher morbidity and mortality in critically ill patients. Therefore, strict glycemic control with a target blood glucose level between 80 and 110 mg/dl is recommended. Intensive insulin therapy requires continuous intravenous insulin infusion according to an algorithm and frequent blood glucose measurements. Implementation of intensive insulin therapy increases workload for both physicians and especially for nurses.
Continuous glucose measurement would facilitate blood glucose control in critically ill patients. Numerous studies have shown accuracy of the subcutaneous continuous glucose monitoring derived glucose values compared to blood glucose measurements in diabetics. Studies evaluating the subcutaneous continuous glucose monitoring in an inpatient-population especially in an ICU-setting are rare. Therefore the aim of this study is the prospective evaluation of continuous subcutaneous glucose monitoring in critically ill patients with circulatory shock demanding norepinephrine therapy as compared to critically ill patients without shock.

Introduction and objective: The key to optimal diabetes management is tight glucose control. Hemoglobin A1c is the gold standard to assess glycemic control but in cases of unrecognized hyp...
This is a prospective monocenter, non-randomised, open-lable single-group intervention diagnostic trial on the accuracy, reliability and feasibility of the continuous glucose monitoring sy...
We wish to find out if in non-diabetic pregnancies, as well as diabetic pregnancies, additional data obtained by Continuous Glucose Monitoring improves perinatal risk prediction.
Continuous glucose monitoring tends to replace capillary blood glucose (CBG) self-monitoring. Our aim was to determine the agreement between CBG and a flash glucose monitoring system (Flash-GMS) in tr...
Neonatal hypoglycemia is a common and treatable risk factor for neurological impairment. Real-time continuous glucose monitoring (RT-CGM) can show glucose concentrations in real time. Using an alarm o...
Blood glucose sensing is very important for diabetic management. It is shifting towards a continuous glucose monitoring because such a system can alleviate patient suffering and provide a large number...
Our ability to monitor blood glucose levels has become increasingly accurate over the last few decades. Continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) technology now allows providers and patients the ability to ...
MiaoMiao (MM) is a Bluetooth transmitter, which when paired with a smart phone/device, converts the Abbott FreeStyle Libre flash glucose monitoring system into a Do-It-Yourself (DIY) continuous glucos...
The continuous measurement of physiological processes, blood pressure, heart rate, renal output, reflexes, respiration, etc., in a patient or experimental animal; includes pharmacologic monitoring, the measurement of administered drugs or their metabolites in the blood, tissues, or urine.
Self evaluation of whole blood glucose levels outside the clinical laboratory. A digital or battery-operated reflectance meter may be used. It has wide application in controlling unstable insulin-dependent diabetes.
Simultaneous and continuous monitoring of several parameters during sleep to study normal and abnormal sleep. The study includes monitoring of brain waves, to assess sleep stages, and other physiological variables such as breathing, eye movements, and blood oxygen levels which exhibit a disrupted pattern with sleep disturbances.
