FDA Clears MDN-CGS Intravenous Insulin Dosing Software

Medical Decisions Network (MDN) recently received FDA 510(k) clearance for its MDN-CGS IV Insulin Dosing Software for use by hospital nurses to quickly and accurately calculate the dosage of intravenous insulin administered to patients with elevated levels of blood glucose.

More hospitals are adopting measures to control elevated glucose levels in critical care units because studies have shown a resulting marked improvement in patient outcomes. The MDN CGS is a networked application, accessible from any computer on a hospital's network. This means that clinicians can continue a patient's infusion progress even when the patient is moved to a new unit.
