Did any of you watch the TV show "Touch" last night? They had a man with diabetes that was unconscious on the floor and someone gave the advice to give him an insulin shot! First thing that came to my mind was how do you know he's low? He never checked his blood sugar. It ALWAYS scares me that I will pass out from a LOW and someone will give me INSULIN!!! (I can hear them now....She WAS a nice person....LOL)
So, I was watching closely to see what he would do and he actually had a Glucagon kit. Ok, so they did get that part right but, I never saw him mix it. He just took it right out of the little red container and injected it into what looked like his vein like you draw blood for lab work...WHAT? Within seconds he was ok. I might be wrong here but, doesn't it take a few minutes for that stuff to work? Sooo much wrong with that scene!!! I know it's just TV but, you would think that they would do some research and get it right.
