Abstract

To measure the efficacy of the Glucose-Insulin Infusion--Parkland Protocol (GIPPr) compared to subcutaneous (SC) insulin, blood glucose readings were reviewed in diabetic adults admitted for surgical intervention of a soft tissue or bone infection in Dallas, Texas. Hypoglycaemia occurred in 0.69% of readings in GIPPr-treated patients compared to 4.52% in SC-treated patients. The GIPPr maintained a higher proportion of blood glucose readings between 3.89-10 mmol/L compared to SC insulin (85.40% versus 50.68%).
