The B. Braun SGC (Space GlucoseControl) Tutorial introduces you to the practice of glucose control using the automated infusion system B. Braun Space. The tutorial explains the scientific background developing the mathematical algorithm which is the basis of the decision support system.
By means of several case studies in clinical practice you can interactively experience the run of the blood glucose values over time in certain therapies. The result of the glucose control by the system is clearly demonstrated and explained with scientific comments. Enteral and parenteral nutrition is also considered as well as the Insulin therapy.
In excess of handling the system the user learns about the importance of safe and reproducible stable blood glucose control within a requested target range to improve patients outcome.
B. Braun Space GlucoseControl (SGC) as part of the automated infusion system B. Braun Space helps you to establish a safe and reliable blood glucose control within the desired target ranges for strict (4.4-6.1 mmol/l) or more moderate glucose control (4.4-8.3mmol/l) on an automated basis. The algorithm calculates the required insulin dose based not only on the actual glucose level, but also on the glucose levels in the past as well as current enteral and parenteral nutrition rates. It also precisely determines the next sampling time. Healthcare professionals will benefit from this easy-to-use solution that eliminates the need for intuitive decisions and keeps the blood glucose within the chosen target range.
The new B. Braun Space GlucoseControl is clinically tested and will increase the effectiveness of insulin therapy and improve the outcome of critically ill patients.
