Be Ready to Dispense New Glucagon Products for Very Low Blood Sugar
Baqsimi (bak-SEE-mee) and Gvoke (JEE-vohk) are new glucagon Rxs that will be game changers for treating severe hypoglycemia.
Quick administration of glucagon is key when patients have severe hypoglycemia. Very low blood sugar causes confusion, seizures, and loss of consciousness...increasing risk of injury and death.
Glucagon injection kits have been the go-to for decades. But they require several steps to reconstitute and administer.
