In the specific case presented which would be the most appropriate treatment for Ms. Brown and why?
Ms. Brown requires several interventions and one of them is diabetic therapy. The patient’s blood glucose is at 412 mg/dL, which is above the normal 100 mg/dL threshold indicating impaired homeostatic mechanisms of glucose (Kong et al., 2019). Given a previous diabetes diagnosis, a glucose control intervention is the most appropriate involving administration of insulin. Biguanides and Sulfonylureas pharmaceuticals are also applicable in leveling serum glucose. In addition, the patient requires rehydration treatment to address dehydration evidenced by the hypernatremia presentations. This intervention involves the intravenous infusion of 20 to 30 mL/kg of Ringer’s lactate solution in the first 2 hours and adjusting this rate with patient outcomes. Administration of oral rehydration solution is an option if the patient’s capacity for ingestion is unaltered as determined by a physician through a physical evaluation. These steps will improve the patient’s health.
