Did You Know?
The most difficult first aid emergencies for candidates to recognize are patients with low levels of blood sugar (hypoglycemia). In this first aid situation the patient shows a variety of symptoms that are often similar to someone being intoxicated including the acetone smell (alcohol) in the breath. Regardless of the type of deficiency whether it is insulin or sugar, it is never a bad idea to offer the patient something sweet to eat or drink (careful not to give the victim something to choke on). For more information about providing care for diabetic patients enrol in a first aid class near you.
