Intra- and Postoperative Management in Diabetes
These two stages have been separated from all the earlier chapters for ease of description and understanding. It will cover the intra- and postoperative management not only in emergency major surgeries but also day care surgeries or procedures which may last for more than 2–4 h in diabetes till the discharge of a patient and subsequent follow-up for a reasonable time. The next three chapters will deal with other operational aspects of routine surgery, followed by the special situations in surgery in diabetes in two parts. We did not want to divert the attention in the control of blood glucose and accompanying parameters which are the most important aspects of making a patient as fit for surgery as can be. Now we will look at other monitoring aspects more from a clinical perspective in the intra- and postoperative management.
