Introduction: Diabetes-related Ketoacidosis (DKA) is a commonly-encountered acute endocrine emergency requiring prompt recognition and treatment. DKA is triggered by risk factors that are often preventable. There are limited studies evaluating the precipitating causes of DKA and depicting their trends over the years. The latter is important in the prevention of DKA by ensuring appropriate education and interventions.Aim: To study the trends of aetiologie...

Introduction: Diabetes-related ketoacidosis (DKA) is an acute endocrine emergency requiring immediate diagnosis and management. Common misconception is that DKA is associated with type 1 diabetes only. We explored the proportion of people with type 2 diabetes, and compared the management, complications and outcome of DKA between people with type 1 and type 2 diabetes.Methods: We conducted a retrospective study on people admitted with DKA across six hospi...

Background: Serious complications of diabetes-related ketoacidosis (DKA) and its management with fixed rate insulin infusion (FRIII) include hypoglycaemia, hyperkalaemia and hypokalaemia. Revised Joint British Diabetes Societies for Inpatient Care (JBDS) guidelines in July 2021 recommended a reduced rate FRIII of 0.05 units/kg/hour from 0.1 units/kg/hour once blood glucose levels fall to ≤14.0 mmol/l to alleviate the risk of these complications.Aim...

Introduction: The delivery of medical education has transformed from in-person to remote teaching, accelerated by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Simulation is a useful teaching modality increasingly used to develop healthcare professionals’ knowledge and skills while protecting patients from unnecessary risks. Although simulation has traditionally occurred face-to-face, many of its principles can be adapted for remote teaching. Simulation via Instant Messaging – Birm...
