    By the rules of the site......
    This is the place for nursing students to consult the membership to share knowledge, ideas, and experience, and to explore ways to maximize success in nursing school. Feel free to seek assistance with difficult content, care plans, interviews, papers, study questions, dosage calculations, and other academic challenges you are facing. This is NOT the forum to ask someone to do your homework for you. When asking for assistance with an assignment, please show what you have done first.
    We are happy to help but we need to know what you have discovered by yourself....are you on the right track? What are you not understanding.....I gave you what you needed to answer the questions yourself
    What condition is present when there is an extreme elevated glucose, increased/excessive urine output, hypotension , tachycardia, low grade temp, and altered LOC?

    Look up diabetic ketoacidosis.
    Now tell me what you have found out by looking this up.

    I usually put links in but I have found many cannot be opened by the students in Palestine....so do an internet search for what I gave you.

    Tell me what your research has taught you and we will discuss it further from there.
