How To Recognize and Treat Diabetic Emergencies

I received an email today from a concerned rescuer who wondered how she could determine if a person is suffering from low blood sugar or high blood sugar and what to do for each.  I thought it would be better if I simply video blogged my answer to her and to the rest of you who might benefit from it.  It can be very scary to see someone with a decreased level of consciousness and not know why it’s happening.  If one thinks that it may be due to low blood sugar, watching this video blog may empower you to know what to do and become a rescuer today.

If you would like to see a five minute training video on what diabetic emergencies are, please go to www.profirstaid.com and click on the video training tab at the top.  Then scroll down to diabetic emergencies. Keep Rescuing!
