Hypoglycemia and cardiac arrest in a critically ill patient on strict glycemic control

Hypoglycemia and cardiac arrest in a critically ill patient on strict glycemic control

Anesthesia and Analgesia 102(2): 549-551

Glycemic control in critically ill patients has become a subject of considerable interest since the publication of studies showing reduced morbidity and mortality in patients when blood glucose was maintained within a relatively low and narrow range (4.4 to 6.1 mM/L). We describe a patient who developed cardiac asystole while being given a concentrated glucose solution to treat severe hypoglycemia after administration of insulin.
