Subcutaneous insulin: A guide for dosing regimens in the hospital
Insulin continues to be the preferred method for the management of hyperglycemia in the inpatient setting. It can be titrated easily, does not have a ceiling dose, and can be administered intravenously and subcutaneously. Details of IV insulin, including the transition from IV to subcutaneous, are discussed in Chapter 3: IV Insulin. In this chapter, we focus on subcutaneous insulin regimens. © 2011 Springer Science+Business Media, LLC.
