October 22, 2014: Emergency management & treatment of the critically ill diabetic: DKA & HHS (2 hrs)

Diabetes Kills Animals? Diabetes Kosts A Lot?

If treating a crashing, unregulated diabetes mellitus patient sounds scary, fear not.

You're in good hands, thanks to generous sponsorship from Abbott Animal Health, this VETgirl webinar was delivered FREE.

In this two-hour webinar, we specifically reviewed diabetes ketoacidosis (DKA) and hyperglycemic, hyperosmolar syndrome (HHS), with a focus on pathophysiology, clinical presentation, clinicopathologic changes, and treatment. The most important modalities of treatment – including fluid therapy, electrolyte management, and short-acting insulin therapy/blood glucose monitoring were discussed.

A case-based approach was utilized, as we reviewed an actual case that presented for DKA. We reviewed initial triage, diagnosis, work-up, fluid therapy, electrolyte and acid-base correction, blood glucose monitoring, central line access, and insulin strategy.

Topic: Emergency management and treatment of the critically ill diabetic: Diabetes Ketoacidosis (DKA) and Hyperglycemic, Hyperosmolar Syndrome (HHS)!
Speakers: Garret Pachtinger, VMD, DACVECC; Justine A. Lee, DVM, DACVECC, DABT
