Plasma acid-base patterns in diabetic ketoacidosis. Efficacy of low-dose insulin therapy for severely obtunded patients in diabetic ketoacidosis. The rate of insulin discontinuation and a history of poor compliance accounts for more than half of DKA admissions in inner-city and minority populations 974 Clin Endocrinol Metab ; Preventing a drop in effective plasma osmolality to minimize the likelihood of cerebral edema during treatment of children with diabetic ketoacidosis.

Management of Hyperglycemic Crises: Diabetic Ketoacidosis and Hyperglycemic Hyperosmolar State.

Diabetic ketoacidosis in infants, children, hyperglycmeic adolescents: Physical findings may include poor skin turgor, Kussmaul respirations in DKAtachycardia, and hypotension. Hyperchloremic acidosis during the recovery phase of diabetic ketosis. Recently, a number of case reports indicate that the conventional antipsychotic as well as atypical antipsychotic drugs may cause hyperglycemia and even DKA or HHS 26 Diabetic ketoacidosis and infection: FFA, free fatty acid.

We recommend against rapid decreases in serum glucose and correction gukdelines serum sodium in order to avoid untoward effects of shifts in osmolarity on brain volume. Clear Turn Off Turn On.


Hyperglycemic Crises in Adult Patients With Diabetes

Hormonal interactions in the regulation of blood glucose. The rate of decline of blood glucose concentration and the mean duration of treatment until correction of ketoacidosis were similar among patients treated with subcutaneous insulin analogs every 1 or 2 h or with intravenous regular insulin.

A significant proportion of patients developed hypokalaemia hypergljcemic hypoglycaemia.

However, patients who received intravenous insulin showed a more rapid decline in crisee glucose and ketone bodies in the first 2 hours of treatment. The use of venous pH is recommended for the diagnosis of acidosis, because of the data suggesting that the differences between arterial and venous pH are not large enough to change clinical management decisions [ 22 — 25 ].

Diabetes Metab Rev ; 3: Open in a separate window. Adapted from [ 78 ].

Treatment of patients with mild and moderate DKA with subcutaneous rapid-acting insulin analogs every 1 or 2 h in non—intensive care unit ICU settings has been shown to be as safe and effective as the treatment with intravenous regular insulin in the ICU 60 To prevent recurrence of hyperglycemia or ketoacidosis during the transition period to subcutaneous insulin, it is important to allow an overlap of 1—2 h between discontinuation of intravenous insulin and the administration of subcutaneous insulin.

Med Clin North Am. Abdominal pain in patients with hyperglycemic crises. Moreover, several deleterious effects of bicarbonate therapy have been reported, such as increased risk of hypokalemia, decreased tissue oxygen uptake 65cerebral edema 65and development of paradoxical central nervous system acidosis. In the USA, Kitabchi et al. A form of diabetic coma, not due to the acetone bodies.


It may be so rapid in onset due to brain stem herniation that no papilledema is found. Hosp Pract ; Any estimation of urine ketones guidelones in this way will be an average of the concentration within the urine held in the bladder since the last void.

Critical components of the hyperglycemic crises management include coordinating fluid resuscitation, insulin therapy, and electrolyte replacement along with the continuous patient monitoring using available laboratory tools to predict the resolution of the hyperglycemic crisis.

Initial fluid therapy is directed toward expansion of the intravascular, interstitial, and intracellular volume, all of which are reduced in hyperglycemic crises 53 and restoration of renal perfusion. Diabetes Rev ; 2: Manitol infusion and hyperglyvemic ventilation are suggested for treatment of cerebral edema It also occurs in type 2 diabetes under conditions of extreme stress, such as serious infection, trauma, cardiovascular or other emergencies, and, less often, as a presenting manifestation of type 2 diabetes, a disorder called ketosis-prone type 2 diabetes However, our study in children demonstrated the effectiveness of intravenous injection of insulin without a bolus dose The patients received subcutaneous rapid-acting insulin doses of 0.
