Clinical Trial

Continuous Glucose Monitoring During and After Surgery

Study Description

Continuous Glucose Monitoring During and After Surgery

During surgery and after surgery elevated blood glucose levels can lead to poor outcome such as wound infections. Current technology does not allow close monitoring of glucose levels often resulting in poor management of glucose levels. In this study, the investigators will evaluate the feasibility of using a continuous glucose monitor (Dexcom Gen 6 Professional) during and after surgery. Such a monitor has the potential of monitoring glucose levels continuously and in real-time, thus allowing better glucose management
