STSBloodGl - The Society of Thoracic Surgeons Practice Guideline Series: Blood Glucose Management During Adult Cardiac Surgery is designed to assist physicians and other health care providers in clinical decision-making by describing a range of generally acceptable approaches for the diagnosis, management, or prevention of specific diseases or conditions.
Despite the emerging recognition of the importance of glycemic control, there are no specific guidelines for cardiac surgeons as to what the optimal level of glucose should be during the perioperative period, and the best method to achieve these target values. The Society of Thoracic Surgeons Practice Guideline Series: Blood Glucose Management During Adult Cardiac Surgery summarizes guidelines for the management of hyperglycemia in both patients with and without diabetes undergoing adult cardiac surgical procedures, derived from evidence-based recommendations.
