Summary: For critically ill adult patients (ie, adults in intensive care for a medical illness), “usual” glucose control is associated with a lower risk of hypoglycemia than “tight” glucose control without any significant increase in hospital mortality (however, “usual” glucose control may be associated with a slightly increased risk of septicemia)
