First paragraph (this article has no abstract)
With great interest I read the recently published work by Schlenk and colleagues that addressed the controversially discussed issue of lowering blood glucose levels in patients suffering from aneurismal subarachnoid hemorrhage . These critically ill patients are at increased risk of developing secondary brain damage whenever blood glucose levels are too high or too low.
