DKA does not work like that. It’s actually diagnosed off of ketone levels. The glucose level does correlate, but the ranges themselves are not diagnostic criteria.Far above my pay grade but the patient was not in dka anymore. But was put back in to dka with the orange juice he drank. But I learn something new everyday. I assume fluids saline + d5 would be better.
I will agree that ems attracts a ton of stupid without doubt.
There def is a paragod complex in the air even with emt’s in 911 vs ift companies
WRT Hall, if you’re serious about your craft, you’ve got to get out of LACo. Hall, Liberty Ridgecrest, American, etc...or move further.
FWIW, 90 percent of EMS is the same everywhere. There are things CA does better than TX, and a motivated, intelligent professional can find a way to be successful anywhere. But while y’all are trying to impress Orange County Fire into letting you check a glucose, we’re doing field blood transfusions.
