An updated version of the Pediatric Hyperglycemia and Diabetic Ketoacidosis (DKA) educational module has now been launched and can be found in the Course Offerings under Illinois Emergency Medical Services for Children (EMSC) > 

Pediatric Hyperglycemia and Diabetic Ketoacidosis (DKA) (5th Edition). This course, offered by the Illinois EMSC program, is approved for 3 continuing education hours by the Illinois Department of Public Health Division of Emergency Medical Services and Highway Safety.

The purpose of the Pediatric Hyperglycemia and Diabetic Ketoacidosis (DKA)  educational module is to enhance the emergency care of pediatric patients who present with hyperglycemia and/or DKA. It will discuss a number of topics including appropriate:

  • Assessment
  • Management
  • Prevention of Complications
  • Disposition
  • Patient & Parent/Caregiver Education

It is our hope that healthcare professionals will utilize these materials to further enhance the care of children in their own settings.
