Abstract: Clinical trials over time have used a variety of approaches for both measuring tight glycemic control and reporting results. The review by Finfer and colleagues in this issue of Critical Care is a step toward consensus within the research community to standardize the way blood glucose is measured and reported in clinical trials. The authors propose using specific measures of central tendency and dispersion for reporting glucose, advocate the use of blood gas analyzers and elimination of point-of-care glucose monitors in the intensive care unit, and comment on performance of continuous glucose monitors. As we await the release of updated rules from the International Standards Organization and process the new rules from the Clinical Laboratory and Standards Institute to regulate glucose monitoring, these recommendations should trigger many more conversations within the field as we strive for uniformity. However, we need to be cautious in prematurely proposing and adopting standards of care that fail to account for newer technology and data in this rapidly growing area of research.
