One of several unsolved challenges in the construction of an artificial endocrine pancreas (a system for automatically adjusting the blood glucose level) is the positioning of the glucose sensor. We believe the best positioning to be either intraarterial or in a central vein. It is therefore important to know whether the glucose content in these blood locations is the same. We conducted a post hoc analysis of previously collected data from pigs exposed to gross inflammatory and circulatory stress. Paired arterial and mixed venous glucose values were compared with a mixed effects model. We found the blood glucose values from the arterial and mixed venous blood to be the same.
