Blood glucose management

Get in touch with the future

B. Braun Space GlucoseControl realizes reliable management of glucose levels in critically ill adults and pediatric patients (aged ≥ 2 years)  with a significantly reduced risk of hyper- and hypoglycemia. With its intelligent dosage algorithm, the B. Braun Space GlucoseControl integrates Enteral and Parenteral Nutrition and exactly determines insulin rate and next sampling time – helping you to easily control complex work processes with minimized episodes of hyperglycemia,  hypoglycemia and blood glucose variability to improve patient outcome.

Risks of Hyper- and Hypoglycemia during clinical nutrition therapy:

  1. Mediation Error: stopping of the nutrition/carbohydrate infusion   without stopping the insulin infusion is a common medication error on ICU
  2. The time of the next blood glucose sampling interval is often forgotten due to stress and work overload, which can lead to severe hypoglycemia or blood glucose variability.
  3. Mistyping or wrongly entered decimal points are a common source of errors putting patient at high risk with inappropriate insulin rates.
  4. Documentation of the nutrition data as well as the insulin protocol are time consuming and may lead to false entries. 
B. Braun Space GlucoseControl (SGC) has been developed in a 3-step approach. Clinical studies have been performed in four intensive care units and different patient populations across Europe to test the algorithm. The results of this multicenter clinical trial: Panel 1: Standard glucose control Panel 2: B. Braun Space GlucoseControl

Safety Features:

  1. SGC automatically gives an alarm to check insulin once the nutrition infusion rate is changed or stopped
  2. SGC automatically gives an alarm shortly before and at the calculated next sampling time
  3. SGC checks input variables such as glucose values for plausibility:
    An integrated supervisor system for insulin rate and measurement intervals ensures reliable output to prevent hypo- as well as hyperglycemia.
  4. SGC reporting tool ensures all nutrition and insulin data are recorded:
  • time of administration
  • carbohydrate intakes
  • blood glucose values
  • total insulin dosage administered
  • time to target
