The book explores both the clinical presentation of serious diabetic emergencies (like ketoacidosis, hyperosmolar coma, and severe hyper and hypoglycemia) that consultants and hospital staff encounter in practice and the best methods of both managing the emergencies and also administering follow-up guidance/care. All chapters are clearly structured to highlight: definition of emergency; epidemiology; potential causes, diagnosis, clinical management (including problem areas), follow-up management/care; and patient advice.
There are case studies to aid clinical understanding, as well as 5-7 multiple choice questions and several key points/take-home message boxes in every chapter.

Diabetic emergencies are an extremely serious result of poor glycemic control and if not treated quickly and effectively can result in death.
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.About the Author:
