Severe hyperglycaemia

You are on shift with the ambulance service's most sensitive nose. However, he can't detect the sweet smell of ketones on the breath of your next patient. She is severely hyperglycaemic, do you know what to do?

This issue explores diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) and hyperosmolar hyperglycaemic state (HHS). You will review the pathophysiology of both conditions, how to recognise them (including differential diagnoses you need to consider) and their management.
