Pt with HIV, CD4 count is <50, pt has fever, chills...you start IV pentamidine. Soon after pt has tonic clonic seizure...What should you do next?
loading dose of phenytoin vs check finger blood glucose level.
Now answer is check finger stick blood glucose level bcz hypoglycemia is a common side effect of pentamidine. My question is
"shouldn't the seizure be the first priority?"""""
search and correct underlying causes first
once u treat hypoglycemia seizures will resolve without antiepileptics
