Abstract

This work is a descriptive review on risk factors for hypoglycemia in patients with continuous insulin infusion in intensive care unit. Publications from 2006 to 2012 were searched in books and articles of indexed databases from virtual libraries. Eight publications were selected and sorted into categories that addressed hypoglycemia, nutritional therapy, and glycemic protocols associated with intravenous insulin therapy. It is concluded that there are common risk factors for the multidisciplinary team and the knowledge of these factors will allow patient safety for using this therapy.
