Capillary glucose monitoring is being performed every 4 hours for a client diagnosed with diabetic ketoacidosis. insulin is administered using a scale of regular insulin according to glucose results. at 2 p. m. (1400), the client has a capillary glucose level of 250 mg/dl for which he receives 8 units of regular insulin. the nurse should expect the dose's: onset to be at 2 p. m. (1400) and its peak to be at 3 p. m. (1500). onset to be at 2:15 p. m. (1415) and its peak to be at 3 p. m. (1500). onset to be at 4 p. m. (1600) and its peak to be at 6 p. m. (1800). onset to be at 2:30 p. m. (1430) and its peak to be at 4 p. m. (1600).

    The onset should be at 2:30pm and peak and 4pm given that monitoring is performed every four hours. There is sometime for the body to process, and the peak lining up with the midpoint if the monitoring cycle makes the most sense.
