Question: Whilst completing my pre-course recertification material, we were asked a question with regards to blood glucose testing. Following administration of med for hypoglycemia, the question asked when next should you do a blood glucose test. I had guessed after 5 min although re-dosing would not be for 10 or 20 min depending on drug used. I guessed wrong apparently.

The other choices would have been:
a) With EVERY vitals post treatment (what about a long off load, we might do 3 or 4 more sets of vitals!)
b) After no improvement (no time noted and they might not show no improvement for a few minutes and sticking them after just two would be unnecessary)
c) Once at the hospital (that would disallow the re-administration of a second dose of treatment.)
