    00:01 So let's wrap up this video series.

    00:03 There are four major similarities between HHS and DKA.

    00:08 number one, they both occur in diabetic patients.

    00:12 Number two, these both represent life-threatening medical emergencies of elevated blood glucose.

    00:19 number three both DKA and HHS involve increased serum plasma osmolarity therefore number four is logical, they both have extreme osmotic diuresis and dehydration.

    00:33 now the three major priorities of care for a patient with HHS or DKA are to safely correct the severe dehydration from the osmotic diuresis, correct the hyperglycemia, and to correct the electrolyte imbalances.

    00:47 Thank you for watching our video today.
