What You Need To Know:
Diabetic Ketoacidosis (DKA) and Hyperglycemic Hyperosmolar State (HHS)

Presented by Carla Cox, PhD, RD, CDE, CPT, FAADE

This webinar will review the physiological response to severe hyperglycemia and the most frequent causes and consequences. Because significant hyperglycemia can largely be prevented, a review of the education principles to share with persons with diabetes to promote prevention will be reviewed along with the recommended frequency of touch points with individuals on this topic. Due to the complexity of treatment, the basics will be reviewed to increase awareness of the challenges of treating these serious outcomes of severe hyperglycemia.

Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the basic physiology and risks associated with DKA, Hyperglycemic hyperosmolar state
  • Teach the principles of DKA and HHS prevention
  • Cite the basic treatment strategies for mild, moderate and severe DKA and HHS
