The patient has to be given glucose till he/she is allowed to have food on their own . Till he gets sufficient energy of natural glucose.
Glucose drip should be given to the patient till normal blood glucose level is restored, the patient is able to do movement properly and he or she should be encouraged to eat food which give instant energy. Even after taking glucose intravenously, glucose level may go down if proper diet is not maintained
hahahahahaha i m not a doc
Glucose can be used for multiple things= 1. A site for the administration of intravenous (IV) injections or infusions 2. Fluid replacement
At the time of when the patient vomits and does not have energy to walk.
When a person has diabetes mellitus, they are unable to regulate the amount of sugar in the body because their pancreas is unable to produce sufficient insulin. When they experience hypoglycemia their blood glucose level drops below normal. They should be given glucose to take the level back to the normal zone.
Your question is a little vague. There are two kinds of glucose drip. (1) Patients that have had major surgery may not be capable of taking solid food for some time until they recover sufficiently to feed themselves. Therefore, the patient is given a 'glucose drip' via a tube which is inserted into a nostril - and goes directly into their stomach. The drip not only contains glucose - it also contains salts and minerals. It is intended as a 'short term fix' until the patient can feed themselves again. (2) Patients that have lost a lot of blood from an accident or major surgery - are given an intravenous drip which is intended to replace lost blood until the body can manufacture the lost blood itself.
Usually if the patient falls into a diabetic coma and needs glucose.
When a person looses a lot of blood through sudden accidents where blood loss occurs, the persons blood balance is lowered. In such cases, the glucose is given till the patient fully recovers.By.Aaira
'Drip of Glucose' can be referred either to Intravenous infusion of Dextrose (which is a biologically active form of Glucose) or to any Intravenous Fluid. Dextrose (along with a few substances) is the sole source of energy to the brain. IV Dextrose need to be given in diseases where the patient is unable to maintain a blood glucose level essential to sustain vital organ function. The rate of infusion is determined by 'hit and trial' method gradually hiking the rate till normal blood levels could e maintained. IV Fluids are given in conditions where a patient is unable to accept oral feeds/ is not allowed orally due to the disease process so as to provide him the necessary fluids, electrolytes and energy (glucose) to sustain life. IV Fluids are also needed to rehydrate a dehydrated patient.
A drip can be used for multiple things:- * A site for the administration of intravenous (IV) injections or infusions. * Fluid replacement. Therefore, how long the drip will be in situ for will depend on the reason for the drip.
glucose in the body is maintained at a constant level. When there is a depletion in this level, a person can go unconscìous because of inadequate glucose supply to the brain. Administration of glucose increase glucose supply to the brain and recover such patients.
