Metabolic Management of Enteral Nutrition in the ICU

Protocols for blood glucose control in the ICU are based on research utilizing insulin as the major therapeutic modality to drive better outcomes. This interactive symposium will review the history of current nutritional guidelines for blood glucose control and introduce data which explores other novel approaches to achievement of normoglycemia and improved outcomes in the ICU. 
  1. Discuss the ramifications of chronic hyperglycemia and glucose toxicity
  2. Describe current insulin administration practices utilized in critical care, highlighting both positive and negative aspects of treatment
  3. Identify novel nutritional management modalities that have been shown to improve glycemic control and patient outcomes
