BACKGROUND Intraoperative glycemic stability and control among patients with diabetes mellitus (DM) undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) surgery has been a major concern. The current study aimed to compare the effect of tight glycemic control and conventional glycemic control on glycemic stability and length of stay (LOS) among diabetic patients undergoing CABG surgery. METHODS This study utilized a randomized control trial design among a convenience sample of 144 patients. Particip...
