Hypoglycemia and acute ischemic stroke can present similarly because:
• A:both oxygen and glucose are needed for brain function.
• B:the majority of stroke patients have a history of diabetes.
• C:the most common cause of a stroke is hypoglycemia.
• D:they are both caused by low levels of glucose in the blood. ✔✔• A:both oxygen and glucose
are needed for brain function.
Reason: Although stroke and hypoglycemia are two distinctly different conditions, their signs and
symptoms are often similar. This is because the brain requires both oxygen and glucose to function
normally. An acute ischemic stroke is caused by a lack of oxygen to a part of the brain due to a
blocked cerebral artery, whereas hypoglycemia (low blood glucose level) deprives the entire brain
of glucose. In either case, the patient presents with signs of impaired brain function (ie, slurred
speech, weakness, altered mental status). Both conditions may lead to permanent brain damage or
death if not treated promptly.

• A:gathering all of the patient's medications.
• B:safely transporting to the hospital.
• C:whether the patient could harm you.
• D:obtaining a complete medical history. ✔✔You selected C; This is correct!
Reason: When managing any patient with an emotional or psychiatric crisis, your primary concern
is your own safety. Safely transporting the patient to the hospital is your ultimate goal. If possible,
you should attempt to obtain a medical history and should take any of the patient's prescribed
medications to the hospital. However, this should not supercede your own safety or interfere with
safely transporting the patient.
