A system for determining an intravenous insulin infusion rate to correct hyperglycemia of a patient

Advantages:
•  Reduces the risk of hyper/hypoglycemia
•  Allows the user to assign a glycemic target
•  Controls glycemic variability above the glycemic target by a strategy different from the insulin strategy used to control variability below the glycemic target
•  Takes into account the maintenance rate parameter
