1. A method for achieving tight glycemic control in a patient in need thereof, comprising:

  • deploying an equilibrium glucose sensor within a blood vessel in the patient;

    coupling the sensor to a monitor that displays the blood glucose concentration; and

    administering a blood glucose regulator when the blood glucose concentration varies outside of a predetermined concentration range, wherein the blood glucose regulator is administered in an amount sufficient to return the blood glucose concentration to within the predetermined concentration range, thereby achieving tight glycemic control.
