Emergency Guideline Gurus
Thanks to Friends of Chitambo Trustee, Dr. Bridget Innes, and the Chitambo Hospital Guidelines Group, 10 sets of emergency care guidelines have now been completed for posting in hospital and clinics. The latest are on management of diabetic emergencies (high and low blood sugar). The tricky part is knowing exactly what resources (drugs, intravenous fluids etc.) are available locally, especially at remote rural clinics. On that, we depend on the local team for information.
