Correlation of plasma glucose level with morbidity and mortality in pediatric intensive care unit patient
This study was conducted in PICU of rohilkh and medical college.
Aim: to study the relationship between plasma glucose level and morbidity and mortality outcome in PICU patients.
Material and Methods: Plasma sugar was assessed using auto analyser (Erba) using glucose oxidase method in blood samples taken at 0, 12, 24hrs.
Results: On evaluating the association between outcome and glycemic status (Normoglycemic, hypoglycemic and hyperglycemic) at different time intervals, majority of normoglycemic and hyperglycemic patients were either discharged after recovery or were referred to higher facility while majority of hypoglycemic patients expired.
Conclusion: there was a significant association between glycemic status and outcome.
