The answer is 4, 5
Rationales:
1. Stringent intensive insulin therapy to maintain glucose levels lower than 110 mg/dL are not recommended.
2. A blood glucose level of 136 mg/dL is acceptable in this patient.
3. A blood glucose level of 148 mg/dL is acceptable in this patient.
4. A blood glucose level of 156 mg/dL is above the recommended parameter of 150 mg/dL. The nurse should titrate the infusion upward.
5. A blood glucose level of 178 mg/dL is above the recommended parameter of 150 mg/dL. The nurse should titrate the infusion upward.
