Diabetic Emergencies: Diagnosis and Clinical Management provides emergency room staff, diabetes specialists and endocrinologists with highly practical, clear-cut clinical guidance on both the presentation of serious diabetic emergencies like ketoacidosis, hyperosmolar coma and severe hyper- and hypoglycemia, and the best methods of both managing the emergencies and administering appropriate follow-up care.
Each clearly structured chapter highlights: definition of emergency; epidemiology; potential causes; diagnosis; clinical management (including problem areas); follow-up management/care; patient advice
Case studies throughout the text aid clinical understanding of real-life scenarios, as do the multiple choice questions and key points/take-home messages. Clear tables and management algorithms highlight the most important features of diagnosis and patient management.
Perfect for both the trainee and the junior specialist, this book is also a useful rapid access tool in the pre- and post-hospital environment, specifically for doctors to best advise patients with notoriously poor glycaemic control who have either suffered from or who are at risk of diabetic emergencies.
