Abstract

Objective: to determine whether mild or moderate hypogycemia that occurs in critically ill patients is independently associated with an increased risk of death. Conclusion: In critically ill patients, an association exists between even mild or moderate hypoglycemia and mortality. Even after adjustment for insulin therapy or timing of hypoglycemic episode, the more severe the hypoglycemia, the greater the risk of death.
