Inpatient severe hypoglycemia (SH), blood glucose (BG) This study reflects a retrospective analysis of system-wide data from 2011 to 2017. Results show BG levels post alert are higher on average (mean 92.83) than pre-alert (mean 74.43). This magnitude of difference occurs in each year (pre-post differences range from 14.7 to 19.3), suggesting that the alert system led to a sustained beneficial effect over time. A decreasing trend in SH rate over time was observed, which differed by hospital (Fig...

Purpose of Review Hypoglycemia and severe hypoglycemia (SH) in the inpatient setting are associated with poor outcomes. This review is designed to highlight approaches to predict and prevent inpatient hypoglycemia that has been successfully implemented focusing on developing overlapping policies and procedures that allow safe glycemic management to occur at all levels of the institution.

BACKGROUND Severe hypoglycemia (SH), defined as a blood glucose (BG) <40 mg/dL, is associated with an increased risk of adverse clinical outcomes in inpatients. OBJECTIVE To determine whether a predictive informatics hypoglycemia risk-alert supported by trained nurse responders would reduce the incidence of SH in our hospital. DESIGN A 5-month prospective cohort intervention study. SETTING Acute care medical floors in a tertiary care academic hospital in St. Louis, Missouri. PATIENTS From 655 in...
