ABSTRACT
The article presents a case report of a 56-year-old woman with type 2 diabetes who was admitted after having ingested an unknown number of zolpidem tablets and other unknown medication. The patient was administered with intravenous inotropic agent and was initiated with emergent hemodialysis. It suggests the essential of early initiation of bicarbonate hemodialysis or hemofiltration to reduce mortality rate in patients with the same condition.
