Gimme Some Sugar

It’s a common occurrence for EMS to respond to Diabetes emergencies. With the increasing prevalence of diabetes in our society, it’s just going to get more common! Whether it’s Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes, there can be more to these patients than meets the eye!

In this presentation, we take both types of diabetes apart. We not only talk about what we see as emergency responders, but also about what’s going on physiologically and psychologically from the perspective of the diabetic. We gain a greater appreciation of the complexities of diabetes care, as well as a simplified approach for treating all types of diabetes-related emergencies.

This class is intended for First Responders, EMT’s, Paramedics, and RN’s. Taught by a diabetic, with interactive discussion and first-hand examples, this lecture will have you walking away with all the mystery taken out of Diabetes Management.

Learner Objectives:

1. Understand the physiology of diabetes – Both Type 1 and 2

2. Physiologically distinguish diabetic coma from insulin shock

3. Describe the signs/symptoms of each

4. Identify a true diabetic emergency

5. Discuss appropriate treatments
