Unconsciousness In cases where the patient has lapsed into severe unconsciousness, treatment in hospital is urgently needed. The unconscious patient should be placed in the recovery position, and the airway maintained. Blood should be taken for blood glucose analysis and the sample should be kept in case the patient fails to respond to treatment since the possibility always exists that the coma has another cause. Intravenous glucose is given using 50 ml of 20% glucose solution. The more concentrated 50% solution is highly irritant and should no longer be used.

Insulin treatment analogues with specific indications is increasing (see also chapters 6 and 8). Some preparations of bovine insulins are still available for the few patients who prefer them. Insulin regimens Starting insulin in patients with Type 1 diabetes Some patients start treatment with twice-daily insulin injections using either a mixture containing premixed short and medium acting insulins twice daily or medium acting insulin alone; 8 units twice daily, 15 to 30 minutes before meals is a suitable initial dose for most patients; others will start with a three or four times daily regimen.

Patients who become unconscious from hypoglycaemia need urgent treatment. Brain damage and death do not normally occur because the blood glucose concentration tends to increase spontaneously as the effect of the insulin wears off and the normal counter-regulatory responses become effective. Many diabetics, especially children, need reassurance that they will not die in their sleep. Nevertheless, a very small number of otherwise unexplained deaths at night have been reported in Type 1 diabetic patients (described as the “dead in bed” syndrome) and no precise cause has ever been established.
