Population based study of hypoglycemia in type 1 diabetes requiring emergency medical services
Endocrine Practice, 07/16/2012
Parsaik AK et al. – Population burden of ambulance requiring hypoglycemia in type 1 diabetes (T1DM) is high. Medical resources utilization was similar among the three treatment groups. Mortality was higher in the SI group (limited by small sample size) and among emergency room transportation (ERT) requiring patients and increased with age. Further research could be directed towards understanding the impact of expert evaluation of high risk patients on long term outcomes.
