Septic Hyperglycemia in Children and the Limitations of Its Correction by Means of Prolonged Infusion of 4.2% L-arginine Solution

M.A. Georgiyants, V.A. Korsunov

Abstract


The article discusses the problems of glycemic control in children with sepsis. The results of our own investigation of the effect of prolonged infusion of 4.2% L-arginine solution in a dose of 5 ml/kg/day on state of splanchnic and pulmonary hemodynamics are provided. The positive impact of the proposed infusion without side effects from systemic hemodynamics is stated.
