Blood glucose increment during surgery is part of stress response, this increment is due to insulin dysfunction and glucose production and hyperglycemia increases complications.
Assess glucose level change intraoperatively and effect on recovery in non-diabetic recipients in renal transplant surgery.
PATIENTS AND METHODS:
52 patients from 1-1-2016 to 1-3-2017 In renal transplant center. all with standardized anesthetic technique, monitoring of blood glucose pre-induction and every half hour, soluble insulin start to be given for patient when blood glucose reach 200mg/dl as 1 unit for each 10 mg above 200 and recovery assessed using aldrete score.
There is variable increase in blood glucose among patients, 39/52 above 110 mg/dl at pre induction,1 patient was 276mg. 18/52 had 200-250 mg at least once among them,11patients reached 250-300mg,6 patients300-400 and 3reahed above400. 5 patients had delayed recovery with no significance relation to pre-induction level but significant to other readings, risk assessment showed more odd’s ratio for delayed recovery in high glucose reading and assessment of increment from pre-induction is a valid test for delayed recovery.
Blood glucose measurement is mandatory in non-diabetic in renal transplant recipients.
