Glycemic Control After Surgery in Kids | News Brief

Tight glycemic control appears to be achievable following cardiac surgery in children ages 0 to 36 months, with low rates of hypoglycemia, according to a randomized, control trial. The researchers noted, however, that tight glycemic control does not significantly change infection rates, mortality, length of stay, or measures of organ failure when compared with standard care.
