Clinical Significance and Possible Ways of Hyperglycemia Correction in Critical Conditions

V.A. Rudnov


In the review there were provided criteria, pathogenesis, pathophysiological effects of stress hyperglycemia — one of the manifestations of metabolic dysfunction complicating clinical course of different critical conditions, including sepsis, mechanical, thermal and surgical trauma, myocardial infarction, and brain damage.
