1. A method comprising:

  • receiving, at data processing hardware, sequential blood glucose measurements of a patient, the sequential blood glucose measurements comprising a current blood glucose measurement measured at a current time;

    determining, by the data processing hardware, an intravenous insulin infusion rate based on the current blood glucose measurement;

    determining, by the data processing hardware, whether the current blood glucose measurement is less than a threshold hypoglycemia blood glucose value for the patient;

    determining, by the data processing hardware, a next time interval from the current time until a next time of a next scheduled blood glucose measurement for the patient based on the current blood glucose measurement, the next time interval comprising a hypoglycemia time interval when the current blood glucose measurement is less than the threshold hypoglycemia blood glucose value; and

    executing, at the data processing hardware, an intravenous treatment process configured to display on a screen in communication with the data processing hardware a graphical user interface having a countdown timer indicating a remaining time until the next time of the next scheduled blood glucose measurement,wherein the intravenous treatment process is further configured to;

    display, in the graphical user interface, a patient information input window; and

    receive, in the patient information input window, patient information inputs from a medical professional to provide patient parameters for intravenous treatment of the patient, the patient parameters comprising;

    a target blood glucose range for the patient comprising a range of blood glucose values between and including a lower limit blood glucose value and an upper limit blood glucose value greater than the lower limit blood glucose value;

    the threshold hypoglycemia blood glucose value for the patient, the threshold hypoglycemia blood glucose value less than the lower limit blood glucose value of the target blood glucose range;

    a low blood glucose percentage drop limit for the patient when the current blood glucose measurement is less than the lower limit blood glucose value of the target blood glucose range;

    a regular blood glucose percentage drop limit for the patient when the current blood glucose measurement is greater than or equal to the lower limit blood glucose value of the target blood glucose range;

    a blood glucose drop rate limit for the patient; and

    a stable time period indicating a blood glucose concentration for the patient is stable in the target blood glucose range, the stable time period comprising one of a specified number of consecutive blood glucose measurements of the patient within the target blood glucose range or a recommended duration of time required for the current blood glucose measurement within the target blood glucose range to determine a blood glucose concentration for the patient is stable in the target blood glucose range.
