Because most cases occur in patients with known diabetes and with previous DKA, resources need to be redirected toward prevention by funding better access to care and educational programs tailored to individual needs, including ethnic and personal health care beliefs.

Because serum glucose in the presence of insulinopenia of DKA and HHS cannot penetrate to cells, in hyperglycemic crises, glucose becomes osmotically effective and causes water shifts from intracellular space to the extra cellular space resulting in dilution of sodium concentration — dilutional or hyperosmolar hyponatremia. Adapted from [ 78 ].

Hyperglycemic Crises in Adult Patients With Diabetes

This consensus statement will outline precipitating factors and recommendations for the diagnosis, treatment, hypergltcemic prevention of DKA and HHS in adult subjects. Diabet Med ; Cerebral edema complicating nonketotic hyperosmolar coma.

Plasma acid-base patterns in afa ketoacidosis. Intracerebral crises during treatment of diabetic ketoacidosis. Subcutaneous insulin injections can more easily be performed in the general medical units rather than the ICU. Thrombotic conditions and disseminated intravascular coagulation may contribute to the morbidity and mortality of hyperglycemic emergencies Because of its ability to pass freely across plasma membranes, the ADA guidelines recommend calculation of serum osmolality without the inclusion of blood urea nitrogen.


Successful treatment of DKA and HHS requires correction of dehydration, guidelinew, and electrolyte imbalances; identification of comorbid precipitating events; and above all, frequent patient monitoring.

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

Abdominal pain in patients with hyperglycemic crises. Both recommend evaluation of precipitating causes. Hyperglycemic crises in diabetes mellitus: The mortality crjses for DKA and hyperglycemic crises has been falling over the years Figure 1b 3. Severe diabetic stupor without ketosis. Diabetic ketoacidosis charges relative to medical charges of adult patients with type I diabetes. Abdominal pain in diabetic metabolic decompensation: Nephrol Dial Transplant ; 29 Suppl 2: Emerg Med Australas ; A randomized study of phosphate therapy in the treatment of diabetic ketoacidosis.

Schumann C, Faust M. Serum potassium concentration may be elevated because of an extracellular shift of potassium caused by insulin deficiency, hypertonicity, and acidemia August Hirschwald, Berlin It is, however, accepted now that true or corrected serum sodium concentration in patients experiencing hyperglycemic crisis should be calculated by adding 2.

Patients usually have normal body temperature or mild hypothermia regardless of presence of infection The UK championed the use guidelinse insulin infusions hyperg,ycemic between 1.

Studies in diabetic and pancreatectomized patients have demonstrated the cardinal role of hyperglucagonemia and insulinopenia in the genesis of DKA Miner Electrolyte Metab ; Phosphorus deficiency and hypophosphatemia. Rarely, DKA patients may present with significant hypokalemia. Acetoacetate and beta-hydroxybutyrate differentially regulate endothelin-1 and vascular endothelial growth guidelnies in mouse brain microvascular endothelial cells.

For both DKA and HHS, the huperglycemic clinical picture includes a history of polyuria, polydipsia, weight loss, vomiting, dehydration, weakness, and mental status change. 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 ].


Bicarbonate therapy The use of bicarbonate in DKA is controversial 62 because most experts believe that during the treatment, as ketone bodies decrease there will be adequate bicarbonate except in severely acidotic patients.

Diabetic ketoacidosis and the hyperglycemic hyperosmolar nonketotic state. Therefore, a hyperglycekic search for a source of infection should be performed even in the absence of fever. Determinants of plasma potassium levels in diabetic ketoacidosis.

Hyperglycemic Crises in Adult Patients With Diabetes

hypetglycemic Arch Iranian Med ; 8: Endocrinol Metab Clin North Am. After this case, several authors described diabetic coma in which polydipsia and polyuria were accompanied by hyperglycemia but without the characteristic Kussmaul breathing seen in DKA [ 37 — 39 ].

A randomized study of phosphate therapy in the treatment of diabetic ketoacidosis. Am J Med ; A randomized study of phosphate therapy in the treatment of diabetic ketoacidosis. Data adapted from ref.

The incidence of DKA in the US continues to increase and it accounted for abouthospitalizations in Figure 1a and, most recently, in forhospitalizations 34.


This then led the way to weight-based, fixed-rate intravenous infusion rates [ 714 ].
