BENZADON, Mariano N. et al. Blood glucose control during cardiac surgery: Report of the Emergency Council of the Argentine Society of Cardiology. Medicina (B. Aires) [online]. 2012, vol.72, n.1, pp. 58-62. ISSN 0025-7680.
Hyperglycemia after cardiac surgery is a common finding associated with the worse outcomes affecting both diabetic and non diabetic patients. Despite the large number of publications available, there is no universally accepted approach to this problem. In an initiative of the Emergency Council of the Argentine Society of Cardiology, local experts gathered to discuss the management of hyperglycemia after adult cardiac surgery. The main objective of the present paper is to summarize the current state of knowledge regarding glycemic control in postoperative cardiac surgery.
