His most recent work, published in The Mayo Clinic Proceedings in August 2004, reported a 29% reduction in mortality of ICU patients treated with an intensive glucose management protocol and was the basis of Stamford hospital’s receipt of the 2004 Codman Award, given by JCAHO.  Krinsley’s recent publication (CHEST) outlines Stamford Hospital ~$1.3 M cost savings resulting from institution intensive insulin protocols in the ICU.
