Hypos (hypoglycaemic events) are one of the most common complications of diabetes. They happen when blood sugar levels fall too low, and symptoms include blurred vision, disorientation, dizziness and difficulty focusing.
But how many healthcare professionals have experienced what it really feels like to have a hypo?
Now, for the first time, HCPs involved in diabetes care will get the chance to put themselves in their patients’ shoes at Diabetes Professional Care 2017 (DPC2017). A new Hypo Hub* feature includes a Simulation Station where, with the aid of a virtual reality headset, visitors can experience the effects of having a hypoglycaemic event first hand.
