MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:

Glycemic Control in the Hospitalized Patient: A Comprehensive Clinical Guide is a unique, practical resource for health care providers dealing with hyperglycemia in the inpatient setting. Outlining a hands-on approach used by the Duke University Inpatient Diabetes Management team, the book discusses a wide range of scenarios that occur while treating patients with hyperglycemia, including challenging circumstances such as steroids and tube feeding regimens. Special emphasis is given to insulin therapy. The chapters are written by a group of health care providers with extensive, pioneering experience in hyperglycemia control in the inpatient setting at the Duke University Medical Center. The book includes the most up-to-date scientific evidence and information and is addressed to not only hospitalists and general internists but also endocrinology fellows, residents, nurse practitioners, nurses, and other primary care practitioners who treat patients in the inpatient setting. The focus is clearly on practical, patient-care topics. Glycemic Control in the Hospitalized Patient: A Comprehensive Clinical Guide is a first-of-its kind, comprehensive guide to state-of-the-art inpatient glycemic management.
